Another Stone Face

There are quite a few stone faces hidden around downtown Albany. Once you start to notice them, you never know when you'll look up and find another one staring down at you. Of course, the State Capitol's exterior has a number of such decorative faces and there's the pair I recently encountered on State Street.

This plump face with its pockmarked stone skin and draped Renaissance-style hat is tucked high above a side-entrance to City Hall on Corning Place. Its expression is one of indifference...or maybe just plain boredom.
