Albany Bulb

    These photographs are just a few I have taken over the last ten years at The Albany Bulb, also known as the Landfill, the Waterfront and just The Bulb. It is a place I feel passionate about. That much is obvious. There are many of us who believe that this piece of the much hyped Eastshore State Park should have been left untouched and unmanaged - because it is a unique example of what happens when a place naturally and organically self regulates. But the dogma of 'preservation' and 'conservation areas' 'resource protection', 'habitats' and 'liability' overrules all individual identity. They cannot leave anything untouched, un-designed. It is as if if they (the park planners) didn't make it, it has no value. Rules, guidelines, regulations, interpretive signage, fences, safety, sanctioned art - it leaves nothing to the imagination. That is what the landfill meant to us - a place of unlimited imagination.

Back when you had to be 21 to vote, I voted for the 1st time. '68. You were probably a mere tad of a youth.

Anyway, my buddy and I decided to go to St. James Alley in Palo Alto and get shit faced. Then I would go vote for Humphrey. Even though I knew Nixon would be the next Pres. At 7:30 we rush out so I can get to the polling place on time. Obviously, there were no laws agin voting while Pie Eyed. I must have smelled like a Coors Brewery. That was the best beer you could get at the time. Pickins was slim, then.

I was the last guy in the place before they closed up. They probably wanted to go home right away, so they didn't say anything.

Next morning, I woke up with a hangover and Richard Nixon. It was time for some hair of the dog.
