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.

Deb in Minnesota

Jill, I think you are right. :-) This ruling shows you can adhere to the letter of the law, but if the law is an ass in the first place, there is injustice.


Yeah. I think the ruling they took as a court last year - same 6 republican and 1 democrat justices - saying that it was unconstitutional to ban gay marriage was the right moral and legal ruling. But after Prop 8's passage they also had to uphold California's nutty system that allows constitutional amendments as if we were changing breakfast cereal. They essentially threw this back to the voters - and that's where our advantage lies. It is just a matter of of the keys is to undo the damage done between African American voters and gay activists when the black community was riled, insulted, offended by the analogies about 'civil rights'. One conservative black commentator said 'Prop 8 was payback. You don't co-opt our battle to undo the taint of slavery for your lifestyle choice'. It's a sad and pitiable argument, but if that's the reality behind the large % of Yes on 8 votes in the black communities - then we have to do better next time to undo that mis-step.
