Flickring through the Capital Region

pink petals

It's spring.

The photo above, of cherry blossom petals in Center Square, is by the ever stylish Kim Dunham.

Here are a few other recent local pictures that caught our eye on Flickr...

Paul took this shot of the Corning Tower from the ground -- even though it doesn't look like that.

Paul also created an "Empire State Planet."

Timothy Goodwin recently posted a bunch of interesting shots involving contrasts between light and dark, including the ESP concourse, cars driving on Lark Street, and a lone doorway.

Flickr user chimpmitten has a big photoset from last weekend's Albany All Stars bout -- there are a lot of good action shots in there.

Kim Stock got a good pic of the "dinosaur" that threatening to eat little kids near the Capitol.

Flickr user ajwphoto56 got a picture of Angelina Jolie on the set of Salt.

Flickr user deadsoggybunny captured downtown Albany from a perspective you don't see everyday -- from a kayak.

And this picture of Tulip Fest by Jessica feels kind of retro to us -- maybe it's the black and white or the girl's skirt.

thanks guys! if only those cherry blossoms could've lasted for more than one week...

Love the flowers, not feeling the shoes.

hm, not sure you've been to any major city recently, but those shoes are the shit this summer. just hop on a subway and they're staring you in the face. i picked mine up when i was in ny 2 weeks ago. but now that you mention it, i guess i can think of quite a few city styles that dont make a strong appearance around here.

you probably wouldnt be too into these either, which i just received in the mail. maybe you prefer these?

You are right Kristi, not silver enough :)

Thanks for the link! :)

Wow, I took the Autumn equivalent of Kim's picture last November!

That Empire State Planet photo is really cool!

Kim, calllllm. "Not feeling" them does not mean they aren't fashion-forward. I don't care for gladiator sandals, either, and they're everywhere this season.

like the shoes..I'm just sad she didn't complement them with a pedi!

(meow! )

@kristi: agreed..HATING the gladiator sandals...bring the lions into the coliseum already!

See what you did, you had to walke the sleeping dragon by disparaging Kim's shoes. The One Rule is you never, ever start on Kim's shoes.

But I have to agree with -S, they're no silver flats.

@B: I think Kristi rocked those silver flats at Wolff's. It's her silver tiara I wasn't really sure about...

So...has the foot stalker returned yet??

yes, i also have silver flats, which i love. they're pretty essential. they're the one purchase i made as a bridesmaid that wasn't a total loss.

M&G - I like this post. TIme to make new flickr friends :)

Kim D.- I'm just not buying the "all the cool city kids are wearing them, so I should too" argument. There have been some dreadful trends over the years that pop up all over the subways. Remember those god-awful gaucho pants from a few years ago?

Not to say the shoes are bad (they're a little hipsterish for my taste), but the argument is kinda lacking.

The photo rocks, though.

@kerosena: Wait a second... Are you implying something about Crocs too? Don't break my bubble :)

Kim, don't pay attention to these people. I still wear my Gloverall (well, not in this weather) no matter what Kristi or anyone else says about it. And I get compliments on it every time. Yes, "why are you wearing that" is a compliment, -S.

My fashion sense is so bad that Kristi once featured me on her blog for my poor taste in socks. So I will refrain from commenting on the shoes, but I can say that your photo rocks!

@B: I went to the Gloverall website and checked them out. I want one for next winter!

Summer, they're better as a spring/fall coat, even. Since they're actually felt (the noun, not the verb) I wouldn't expose mine to too much snow without some pre-treatment. But it is a great coat! Now if I can only find my monocle and pocket square, I'll have everything I need for a night on the town, as the locals say.

Celina. Wait. You modeled for my post (right before we had some not-so-good sushi), so it wasn't like we had an ambush make-over or Glamour-style black bar going on!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
