Well, it's Feb. 25 and it's been quite a while since I've updated, but it's also been quite a while since I've done any shooting. Yesterday, a friend and I went to Troy and did some street photograpy. Yes it was cold! Yes it was windy! Yes we persevered! I used one camera with slide film in it for a competition at my photo club, but the rest of the time I used my digital camera. I'm happy with some of the images, at least enough to have made the fieldtrip worth while.

This first shot of the train station is along the Mohawk River, not in Troy. We didn't stay here too long since the wind was blowing with a vengeance...

These pigeons were interesting. They were
roosting on the roof of this apartment building. Every once in a while, as if on cue, they would all
take off, circle around in unison for a minute or two, and then land again on the roof.

We stopped at a hot dog diner for lunch. Before
we left we managed to take some shots of the
interior. I was intrigued by the folks sitting at
the counter. They paid no attention to me, as if
there were photographers there taking photos
every day. I'm glad they ignored me.

These last two shots were taken in an alleyway.
I love the one with the lettering on the wall. The
phone number reminds me of the one I had when I was growing up. Two letters and five numbers...
