Nice shot :) I was hoping to get a photo from my office because we're under one of the ALB approaches. Not the right one, though!

So come on who was arrested in the Bailey case? And why is it being done at the same time the president is arriving/speaking? Sounds fishy to me...

That's gotta be the coolest photo ever taken in Albany. I too have photos from his ALB landing, but they aren't nearly as awesome as that picture.

Save Pine Hills, I can't tell you too much because "they" know where I live and I'm low on tinfoil, but I have two words for you: sun spots.

Sadly, even though I had my SLR alongside my iPhone, I had left it in the wrong setting and every shot I had was overexposed. The ones from takeoff are a little better, but I was on the wrong end of the runway for any shots like this. Figures.

I frequently find myself along this trail on Sunday mornings, hungry, & very little is open. There's a lot of talk about special mowers & building bathrooms & that's nice, yes, let's do that, certainly. But *right now* people using this trail are hungry & want to buy food & drink (& use the bathroom, as a paying customer): if the businesses that are already there were OPEN it would go a long way to providing amenities & destinations. ...
