Day 5 of the photograph challenge (From a high angle)

Today's photography challenge topic is "From a high angle."  This was taken from the fourth floor of the Hall of Justice Building.  The Sacramento Railyards project is finally moving forward, for years and years this land lay fallow - the majestic brick buildings abandoned.  Environmental remediation had to be performed.  The first phase, building infrastructure, is in progress.  The construction in the foreground is a retrofit project improving the Sacramento Valley Station and creating an intermodal hub servicing Amtrak, the Capitol Corrider, light rail and bus.  

Pictured below is a futuristic rendition of the Railyards project, the final build-out predicted for 2020.
