On Thanksgiving Day, after thoroughly stuffing ourselves with stuffing, turkey and all the trimmings, we took a walk in the Sierra Nevada foothills enjoying the 70-degree weather. My dad lives in Michigan Bluff, an old Gold Rush era town about 50 miles east of Sacramento, California. Besides the gold rush era of the 1850s, the town’s claim to fame is that Leland Stanford lived here briefly. Stanford was one of the “big-four” financiers of the railroad and eventually became governor of California. Stanford University near San Francisco was named for him as well.
For the last Photography 101 assignment, I went traipsing through the area and into the Masonic Cemetery nearby looking for photo opportunities that would lend to the theme of “double.”
