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.

Deborah, The Great AND Powerful

Thank you.

Deb in Minnesota

I am spending Christmas here in Minnesota, just kitty and me this year, although I may go away for New Years. I'll make a nice dinner, take a walk, read some Dickens, enjoy my tree and relax. For a few days, I just want to "be."

Happy Chrishannakwan to you, Jill and all the animals.

Jill, Happy Solstice! I look forward every day to the moment we begin to regain the sun.

You have always resonated Jill.

I do hope your travels send you to Boise this spring.

Happy Chrishannakwan
