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.

Deb in Minnesota

Indiana, what a handsome gent! I hope you find a good home for him.

The summer of 1965, I was in bed for six weeks plastered into a body cast after a hip operation. I was hot, bored, frustrated and in pain. But my parents, luckily, bought me a little transistor radio that kept me occupied. I listened hour after to hour to this one station that played all the Golden Oldies of the 1950's and early 1960's, Elvis, Motown hits, and more. That music saved my sanity.

I must be about the same age as you, Jill. I was age 6 in 1960 and still remember the freedom of running around in the summer wearing shorts and no shirt. A couple years later Mom made me keep on my shirt and sadly I had to comply. And resented the freedom my brothers had all the more.
