Just returned from my first official professional planning conference, the APA Upstate New York Regional Conference!  I probably wasn’t as “professional” as I should have been, but it was a good time and the department comped most of it.

Most notable here:  I didn’t realize how much I missed delapidated city streets until our drives and walks through the area immediately around downtown.  I’ve included a couple photos (pre-processing) of my usual super abstract brick-wall-and-a-weed style.

Also, out of idle curiosity I checked out this and the other blogs’ reading stats lately… Stan&Ergo is doing better than I thought!  I should post some new ones soon.  Also, I found it amusing that almost exclusively, the key words listed to find the other blog were variations of “epic fail.”  Good times.

I’ll post the rest on Facebook, until I finally get around to a photoblog format.

I’ve recently started following Lens, the New York Times photojournalists’ blog.  Topics range from current events to slow-exposure photography of New York City to images dug up in the archives.  I just had to post this entry in particular – “Nature Triumphant,” a collection of post-2008-flood images from Iowa and Texas.  In spite of the tragedy of the event itself, these photos are utterly beautiful.  #5 is my favorite – the reflection of painted boats in real water.

It’s high time for another LEGO post.  In the meantime, marvel at the work of Brick Structures and the new Frank Lloyd Wright sets.  I can only hope the LEGO version of Fallingwater is more structurally sound.
