For Those Of You [Not] Living in Rio Linda

As readers of the blog know, I came out of the closet a while back and confessed that I married into a (wonderful) Rio Linda family. Over the past 20+ years I’ve been there more times than I can remember  for family functions, holidays, BBQ’s and whatever.


Water Seeks Its Own Level

As a result, I believe I’ve got the chops to say pretty much anything about Rio Linda that I want, as long as I don’t get too carried away.

But right now I don’t plan to say anything. That’s a relief, isn’t it?

What I do plan to do though, is share some really fine photographs of Rio Linda. These were taken by Steve Shames a Sacramento photographer. Although he’s got gorgeous photos of more famous ‘pretty’ places, he called this particular collection one of his favorites.

These were taken on high speed infra-red film, so they are a bit other-worldly, but very effective.

When I was an aspiring (amateur) photographer long ago and far away I experimented with infra red film and I can vouch for the fact that it’s not something you want to try at home. It’s easy to take a weird looking picture but impossible to take a good one.

Steve has done a great job, here’s the link to Steve Shames Rio Linda collection.

And America’s Pinata can eat his heart out.
