Another Iron Acorn

I've walked by this fence behind the First Presbyterian Church many, many times, but only just noticed this acorn final.  It probably stood out because, earlier in the day, I'd come across an iron acorn on a fence at the Albany Rural Cemetery while looking for the grave of Dianna Mingo (a former slave and centenarian who lived kitty-corner from the future site of the First Presbyterian Church)


  1. It's a rather pleasant detail to notice!

  2. NEW YORK --If a "selfie" is the first picture you take at this New
    York Public Library photography exhibition, you're doing it right. Walk through
    the entrance, and the goading mirror above reflects a mantra fixed under your
    feet: "I am in the public eye."

    It's one of several ideas the library's curator of photography, Stephen C.
    Pinson conveys in the "Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing of New York photography. The
    goal, he said, is to look at the history of photography through the
    contemporary lens of social media.
