The entry way of the Millard House in Pasadena, California. The house was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and was one of his earliest experiments with pattern block construction. The house itself is is pretty rough shape, having been damaged by the elements and earthquakes.

A bit of post modern architecture for your Saturday morning. This picture shows a portion of the Clos Pegase winery near Calistoga, California. The building was designed by Michael Graves, although the colors have changed since it was originally built.

My wife and I recently took the Southwest Chief train from Chicago to Los Angeles. It was the first time that either of us had taken a long distance train. I've always liked 'road trips', and it was nice to take a leisurely trip across the country on the ground, rather than flying over it. The scenery may not be outstanding along this particular route, but I still found it enjoyable.

+Lawrence Sauter Thanks! We did have some wonderful light, the next trip will probably take us through the Rockies.

This is St. Teresa of Avila, located in Bodega, California. The church is famous for a couple of reasons. First, it was shot by Ansel Adams in 1953, back when it had a nice curving dirt driveway. The church also had a brief appearance in the movie 'The Birds', directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The schoolhouse behind the church was featured more prominently.

A view inside of Union Station in Los Angeles. My wife and I took the Southwest Chief from Chicago to LA and this was our final stop. Very cool station!

Had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles by train a couple of weeks ago. We took Amtrak's Southwest Chief, from Chicago to Los Angeles. The end of the journey took us to Union Station in Los Angeles. The station is in great shape (contrast that with Michigan Central Station in Detroy). I only had a short bit of time to grab some quick shots of the interior. I hope to be able to get back to get some better shots.

+Anna Ryndak It was nice, although the route I really want to take is the California Zephyr which goes through the Rockies.

A bit of film noir for Sunday afternoon. This is a picture from the Bradbury Building in Los Angeles, California. The building is probably most famous for it's appearance in the movie 'Bladerunner'. This building was the home to J. F. Sebastian (the toymaker). This particular shot is roughly the same angle as the still captured from the movie - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:BladeRunner_Bradbury_Interior.jpg

For processing, I started with one of the film noir presets in Silver Efex Pro 2.

The oriel staircase at The Rookery in Chicago, Illinois is probably one of the most interesting features of the building. Unfortunately you can only really appreciate them if you either work in the building or take the tour of the building offered by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. You can get a feeling for the interesting nature of the stairs from the lobby, the more impressive view comes from the higher floors.

My wife and I recently attended the 'California Craft - West Coast Modern and Frank Lloyd Wright' tour offered by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. The tour included several Wright sights as well as others by Greene and Greene and Rudolph Schindler. Hollyhock House had just finished a major restoration project and was due to open to the public the week after we were in town. We were able to get a tour of the house before it went back on public display. Here are a few shots from that tour.

This picture was taken at the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California on a recent trip. Around the back of the hall is a walkway which goes between two metal clad structures. When I was there the sun was shining in such a way that it caused interesting patterns to be cast on the reflective surfaces of the metal.
