Albany Bulb

  • 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.

Jill! I was wondering where you were keeping yourself. I almost sent out a search team there to California. ::waves to you from Minnesota::

Well, I hope things turn out to be a comedy (in the classical sense) rather than a tragedy.


Brilliant! Just brilliant - love that about the queen and the king - wish more people had a good enough education to make analogies to Shakespeare like this. Guess we'll have to import them from England?

Also loved the part about poking out of eyes - I'm sure that will be happening soon enough, metaphorically speaking.

Thanks for the humor that also engages the mind - we need more of that.


Great! Maybe the play has barely begun. When is Shylock going to appear? for surely the pound of flesh will be required of someone at some point. I wish Hillary would display the determination and independence of the Shrew and give better than she gets more often. I also hope that the predictied attacks on Barack will not reduce him to a Hamlet role.


Hi there Jill,
Claire and I had a good laugh over your witty Shakespearian commentary - love it! With all the stamping up and down on the grand stage over your way, you may have missed our own wonderful drama down under, with Kevin Rudd's apology to the Stolen Generations. If anything could demonstrate the power of ritual in the drama of public life, this has been it. Even my relatively conservative workplace downed tools and watched the extraordinary occasion on a big screen in the Chambers - Claire and I managed to get to Canberra, just to be there. A shift has happened... we have been elated and mourning both. What a moment in history it has been. But not the last act we hope - feels like the stage has opened wide inviting so many little actors like you and me to take our next shaky steps in a new, more hopeful, drama, writing it as we go ...
Not happy to hear you have been fretting dear. Maybe you should drop by for dinner Sunday night?


Hi there, me again,
If you're interested, you can read/see Rudd's speech at:
And I loved the picture of him hugging Lowitja O'Donahue and others at this site:,23599,23206140-2,00.html?CMP=KNC-google
