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 am struck by the way in which I am grabbing at life, at all things which exude light and texture and shape and sound, smell, scent and taste. I am somehow both exalted by my exuberant and bold determination to make every experience count and exhausted by the sight and sound of my friend diminishing into darkness. Life seems, as it should, very precious to me, right now."

Jill, that's awesome and beautiful.



As with many things that I will never grow tired of concerning you, I will never tire of your words about your life which you so generously share with your family, friends, and semi-strangers (which I suppose is my rightful category).

I have read this post several times. It begs reverence and so I hesitate to write anything. It begs sage words which I do not have a gift for giving, so I hesitate again to write anything. It begs personal observations on the dichotomy of your current place you find yourself in. I like the word dichotomy and so I have been seduced to write something anyway.

As I began to read, other than it was so nice to hear your words from London, I prided myself that I already knew that a "lift" was an elevator. But as usual course, as you continued I found myself in amused mystery about what "mini papadums" are. Delighted that I have a mental image of you in your private checkout line buying things such as, clotted cream, teacakes and fruit fools. I suppose I could Google for decriptions however, I think it adds to my delight to not know what you are choosing to eat but knowing it must be good and comforting. Thats all I really need to know.

You have betrayed no one. You have given an ultimate gift to your dear friend. You have done so with solemnity, joy and thoughfulness. I wish all of you Godspeed Jill(ie)
