Albany By Air: An Aerial Tour of Downtown
Albany Skyline Sunrise
The above image is a glass negative of the New York State Legislature and New York State Education Building in Albany, New York from 1908. The bottom is the image restored and rebuilt. Cameras of that time typically didn't have the ability to capture the dynamic range of both the sky and the ground. That's the reason so many images have completely clipped, or blown out skies in so many vintage photos. Check out the trolley tracks running down Washington Avenue. They are really the only giveaway that this isn't present day because of the prevalence of so much timeless architecture.

On-location in a controlled burn zone, Albany, New York.
Daybreak Albany: Those who get up before the sunrise know the feeling of owning the city before the rest of the world wakes up and takes possession.
Aerial Albany: I love seeing drone and aerial footage of familiar landscapes. The city looks quite different 400 feet above the deck. The chaos and push of movement falls away in the distance between the lens and the ground. It's like a Sunday morning or a scorning Upstate New York afternoon when all the streets are abandoned. What's special is at that very moment, the view is exclusively yours, and by extension, the landscape.
