My mother lives in the suburb just north of Buffalo, one with an eerily short drive to Love Canal. If you don’t know about Love Canal, you’re obviously even younger than me. Check Wikipedia. No love there, and certainly no lolz. If you didn’t understand the last word in the previous sentence, you’re obviously older than me. Funny how that works. I feel like the middle child, though I suspect every generation goes through this phase. I know my history and respect the experience of my elders. I also enjoy a feverish connection to the digital world, keeping abreast of the latest in music, movies and annoying interweb acronyms.
On with the pictures? Indeed.
Love Canal. 100th Street. To the left, through the fence, is the site of the former 99th Street Elementary School. Currently? Superfund site. Funny how that works. 99th is gone…that’s how toxic it was. The street is now grass, no hint of where used to be. Google maps may show 99th, but I promise you that Google simply has an active imagination. It ain’t there. Across the “meadow”, there are inhabited houses along 96th St. Their backyards end at the fence of the government site. Brave…or just stupid?
Sunset looking towards the LaSalle Parkway.
Interesting light pole. Semi-interesting. Or maybe it was the sky I liked….
Reading material I found on the ground. What’s that guy looking at anyway?
Niagara Falls. I was one of 23,004 people to get this picture on this day.
And, my favorite shot of the day, Tourists in the Mist. Click to enlarge.
Check out the alternate, overexposed version. Anyone like this better?
