I still take quite a few photos when the mood strikes, and I upload them to Flickr, but that’s about it. So I figured it’s about time to write a post, before the end of 2011, so I can start with a clean slate. Let’s see, since Letchworth with Mom, I’ve captured photos of the old John Deere / Case Supply building in Syracuse, now being converted to our local PBS station, WCNY.
A couple of months later, I was told to get my hiney back there, because they tore out the middle section of the complex:
And on the northwest side, they found an interesting structure in the middle of another portion they tore down. Safes are inside of this little structure. The safe on the top floor will be opened and displayed.
I documented via photos and web (not done with the web yet) the Octagon Schoolhouse Cemetery, and filed for an historic marker, since this cemetery has NO marker or sign, at all.
I’ll find out next year if the marker is approved.
My apartment was full of ghoulish things for Halloween (not mine), but I do like the lights in the window.
I try to capture the full moon on December 10 over Irondequoit Bay.
I try to go for a ride in the snow at the New York Museum of Transportation, but alas, no snow:
Next I learned that East Rochester used to be called Despatch, and yes, it was a big railroad town. I have rare film footage of a factory there that built railroad cars. Cool beans! This is the railroad side of Despatch Junction:
And then there’s Christmas. I haven’t downloaded the photos yet, but the old apartment windows are highly decorated with icicle and other lights and dripping with fake snow, since there’s no real snow. Yet!
