Yates Center, New York

Lake Effect Snow

That's what they were calling it on local radio. The closer I got to Lake Erie, the heavier the snow fell. When I reached the lake, I could hardly see it.

Old Mill

This building is reviving. No longer a mill, it's home to a variety of artists and artisans including several small studios with national reputations in the hand-crafted bookbinding field.

Another Walk in a Small City

Holyoke was proserous in the 19th century, another manufacturing town that has fallen on hard times. There is an airbase nearby. These huge cargo planes, perhaps especially on training flights, move so slowly I can't believe they stay in the air.

Hudson, New York
Two Objects

Heracles, above. I don't recall the skull in the translations I've read.

Below, Roxbury International again. I keep looking at the airplane in the hanger. Its designers may have wanted it to be beautiful, but I'm sure they mostly wanted it to fly. I find it interesting that if you design something to fly, it's nearly certain to be beautiful.

Dutchess County, New York

The Catskills

Route 199 comes off of Rt. 22 with a twisting ascent heading west, and at this point you suddenly gain enough elevaton to see across the next couple of ridges to the Caskill Mountains, lying on the other side of the Hudson River. Look at what happens to the utility lines as they cross the ridge:

Railroad Overpass

It goes over a street that ends at the river. It doesn't matter how often the concrete abutment is repainted, the graffiti comes back immediately.

Three Signs

They're on the side of an old building housing a dry cleaner's. One of the front windows let's you see the dry cleaning machine, which looks a bit like a front-loading clothes dryer expanded to fill an entire room.
