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'm so sorry Jill...


As am I.



Jillie I really do love your tender, caretaking soul. Oscar is all those things you say. I have always enjoyed his pictures. I hesitate saying that I wish I could take away the pain of your impending loss because somehow I think that might diminish his immense importance. Your are Oscar's kind and loving friend and he yours. I will be thinking of you and Oscar in the days to come.

Thinking of Prince Oscar and sending you a big hug.


Thanks all - it's interesting how I feel now that I have written it all down and flooded Facebook with the epic photo collection that is 'Oscar's Great Adventure'. I am not panicked anymore - and he senses that I'm calmer. In fact they all sense I feel better. And it has helped me move emotionally closer to that day. The truth is - I am surrounded by elderly animals. Frankie will be 14 in October (old for a border collie), Calvin will be 13 in July, and even Roo will be 7 this year. I have three cats who are 11 plus years...
We euthanised Roxy at 15 in October 2007, Ophelia was 17 when she died in 2006, Nero, Julius and Squeaker, cats who adopted my home all died within a year of each other...and I have helped other people through the I have handled the emotional wrenching often and it breaks my heart...but that's the price we pay for loving these amazing creatures who die before us. I wouldn't trade it for anything -


I totally agree...
Being "save" and unvulnerable means not living really.
Anyway it´s tough and I send you loving thoughts and energy to help going through this pain again....

Hey Jill,
Give Oscar a gentle pat for me. I'm thinking of a Robert Frost quote, "The only way round is through."
Take care,
