Welcome to our regular feature, Saturday Snapshot, our opportunity to showcase photos we or friends and family have captured. The event is now hosted by West Metro Mommy.
Today I’m going to share a few tidbits about my eldest son (the photographer) and the interesting house in midtown Sacramento where he lived during the mid-nineties. It was after he had lived and photographed his stay in Ireland…and before he moved to Prague (in 1997).
I scanned some photos of the interior of the house, a two-story, six bedroom home (with a huge basement), where he lived with six roommates. I visited there a few times.
Later (in 2000), when I was writing one of my novels (Miles to Go), this house was the inspiration for the home of my main characters, Lindsay Malone and Gia Greenbaum, who were enjoying their radical student years there (in the 60s/70s).
My favorite parts: the interesting woodwork.
The house was situated just a few blocks away from Zelda’s, one of the best pizza places I’ve ever visited.
What are the rest of you showcasing this week? I hope you’ll stop by and share your links.
