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.

I was only turning 6 July '66 so have no ~memory~ of the events of that summer. I know of them only through archived news accounts and re-counts such as this. For that, I'm grateful. Still.. that is not to say there haven't been horrors along the way, personal and global that haven't haunted, touched, and / or intruded the psyche.

Thank goodness indeed for the gift to be able to see through the filters.

Bring on the blue skies, metaphorically and otherwise.


beautiful jill. i could smell the wood floor wax, see your almost 13 year old little self sprawled on the rug surrounded by newspapers, with the green green lawn out the window.
