As we all know Sacramento is under construction. The struggle to keep the Kings here is over, their new home is steadily coming along and soon the masses will come. In the mean time I thought I’d go out for a couple of hours down town and shoot a vary brief glimpse of the gentrification our city is experiencing.
Now my home and studio is all of a few blocks away from what is the largest construction site this city has seen in many a decade so I to shall become gentrified as it were. I’m a big fan of exploring ones neighborhood I actually like the way my neighborhood is today, the smells, the sounds the way it breaths so I’m curious what change will come.
Walking around the down town area on a Thursday evening there was quite a bit going on. There were school children finishing up band practice and walking back to their school bus. The local church was having its evening mass with the lead up to Easter. You have folks valet parking their pride and joy and of course the homeless taking up shelter for the evening where ever they can and alley ways going quiet for the evening with their dumpsters containing that days trash.
As for the change all of the gentrification will bring? All I can do; like everyone else is wait and see while enjoying what I currently have. Time, as they say, will only tell.
