Construction starts on the Golden 1 Center, Sacramento

A few favorites from the week

ABOVE: Opening day of demolition for Sacramento’s new Entertainment & Sports Center. Mayor Kevin Johnson being interviewed in a media scrum in the early hours of the morning.

I always enjoy finding new textures and subject matter in my work for the City of Sacramento, which is exactly why I’ll be doing posts on my favorite photos from the office. From playing in the dirt or water, to pressers and opening days, I can never complain about being bored on the job. Enjoy.


A construction worker look at me with tired eyes on the first day of demolition for the Sacramento ESC. Roughly 5 a.m. on a Thursday morning. I’m working off of about 2 hours of sleep as well.

I ride a front-end loader through the American River, where the Sacramento Water Forum is building habitat for salmon and trout to spawn and rear.
