Happy Halloween

A spooky gravestone in the Albany Rural Cemetery

Stones like this - with winged skulls or soul effigies -aren't found in great number around here (they're much more common in New England), there are a few interesting examples.  This striking stone is one of the oldest in the Church Grounds section.

After Sandy

Looking east from the corner of Madison Avenue and Eagle Street (diagonal from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception) as the remnants of the storm pass.

I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

With Halloween (and a bad storm) on the horizon, this car was spotted just off Lark Street this morning.

The Crypt

Door on the Elk Street side of the Cathedral of All Saints.  And, no, it's doesn't lead to the spooky sort of crypt.  It just leads to a basement room where the Cathedral has a thrift shop.

Cleaning Boots

My friend volunteered to test an antique boot-scraper on Elk Street and agrees that these are a pretty good idea.

The Moody Bee

A not-so-cheerful, but oh-so-cute bee on Lark Street near Lancaster Street.

Sunday Morning Rose

A flower lying on State Street, perhaps a remnant of a Saturday wedding at nearby St. Peter's Episcopal Church.
