Sadly, I have turned on comment moderation. I escaped the spammers for several years, but alas that innocent time is past. I refuse to put on word verification - I have so much trouble with it that I definitely restrict my commenting because of it. Sorry for the hassle and thanks for visiting!
A viola player by the tug of my heart, sidetracked by a career in technology. My favourite programming language is solder, and I'm a ham radio operator because it's an excuse to build lots of strange stuff.
I started a photo blog because of the beauty I first saw in Eric Tenin's Paris Daily Photo. Through him, I discovered the City Daily Photo ring, and I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm not as dedicated as he is though, so I do miss some days.
Pine trees growing in the HG Reist Wildlife Sanctuary in Niskayuna (just east of Schenectady proper.) It's a great place to go for a walk, dense trees and several decently marked paths. Poison ivy in the wet areas, but if you stay on the trails it isn't an issue. Saw a woodpecker but he didn't photograph very well with the point and shoot camera.
Here's where to find the Sanctuary. There's a small bit of parking at the north end, on Morgan Av.
