In Trenton, there is flooding in the park under the rail bridge as Lake Ontario remains high, pushing up water levels in the Trent River towards Lock 1.

Tower and Turnbuckle

1/80s, f7.1, 800ISO, autoWB, 18mm.

On my trip to Buffalo last week, I noticed an interesting building from the train that I wanted to visit so this time we stopped, despite the rain. The Central Terminal had fourteen platforms and there are now weeds and trees growing between them. The concourse is an interesting building and the office tower is striking, being the only highrise tower in the area.

We visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio as well as the exterior of several other houses in the area. Above is the Nathan G. Moore residence seen on the walking audio tour.

Back in Chicago, we walked around the downtown again and visited the Picasso (above) and Monument with Standing Beast (where I used urban stuff as a tripod).

It seems a little strange put a fire escape through a grand porch on Langdon
I also saw nicer things at Monona Terrace while I was out today.

It rained all day today so it seemed like a good idea to shop at big box stores and buy donuts at Hurts Donut.
