Stanford Mansion

Stanford Mansion

Sometimes it's difficult -- but not impossible -- to photograph historic buildings without capturing the buildings that dominate the background. You have to walk around the building and look at it through the camera viewfinder. If you're careful, you can excise the modern buildings from the scene.

The Stanford Mansion in downtown Sacramento is one example. I took this picture last Friday after work. What you don't see is the multi-story Resources Building that's located on the same city block as the Stanford House.

I think I've found another view yesterday that should work. I'll look at it next time I take my camera to work.
