Classic Bad Photography Saturday: Albany 1
Believe it or not, I went to Albany for a vacation in 2003. Yes. Really. Albany.
The reason? There was a new World Trade Center exhibit at the State Museum of New York. I saw it, and in a way, I'm sorry I did. It was chilling. The exhibit featured photos, videos, pieces of twisted metal, and the remains of a fire truck crushed beneath the debris. There was a small mound of personal effects, things like key chains and stuffed animals that were found in the rubble-- items that were never matched with their owners. My visit was unforgettable.
Moving on. This is a shot of the capitol complex-- an area that underwent massive renovations during the Rockefeller administration. I can't say I liked it. It's possible to mix new buildings with the old successfully. Here, I didn't think it worked.
I will say that I really enjoyed the scenery of upstate NY.
