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.

Deborah, The Great AND Powerful

I'll be in your book.....

Barry in SF

Hey, what's happening here? Lately the blogs seem to start out about one thing and wind up with self praise. Now, you've accomplished a lot, but something is going on here that makes me wonder just what in the heck is happening here?

There is no doubt in my mind you have had perhaps the greatest effect on Berkeley in the last several years than anyone. Kicking out the cops was a great accomplishment, rivaled only by getting the new shelter funded and sighted. I'm sure you'll tell me otherwise, but I doubt you'll convince otherwise.

What I'm concerned about is what's going on with your self image? Seems like your wacking yourself over the head with one hand and slapping your back with the other.

And what's up with the "its time to leave" horse shit? You're not going anywhere. A shit disturber of your stature is going to get bored in the sticks. It's just too much a part of your nature.

I doubt there's enough hosre shit in Elk, or Moose Breath, or Guala Guala for a disturber with your accumen. You'll be bored in no time.

Get your ass in the darkroom or photoshop or under a dark cloth with a portrait camera. You've got the chops. In time you can start thinking about a memoir.

Right now, though, you're still gathering material.

Or, maybe I just don't understand the blog concept. Let me hear from you, Spanky.

hey Jill,

I hope you don't leave Berkeley since I'm just getting to know you. I'd love to help with that photo book if I can!
