Fresno, California

Photograph of Van Ness Avenue Arch in Fresno, CaliforniaHere are a few images that are a departure from my usual Landscape work. Fresno is the fifth largest city in California and is the center of the great agricultural valley, the San Joaquin. Highway 99 north entered Fresno through the Van Ness Avenue Arch. It was originally a stucco and terra cotta structure built in 1917. When the new Highway 99 bypassed Fresno, the arch became a victim of neglect. It was repaired in 1980.
