Central Morning

Driving down "the avenue" this morning I the silhouette of the buildings against the cloudy sky.  There was the shadow of the sun behind the clouds which accented the skyline.  It was a frigid night and morning - 10 degrees when I was driving in to work.  The only thing visible on most people were their eyes - hats pulled down, scarves wrapped around their faces, heavy boots and coats and gloves.  Here in the Northeast we don't really get the cold temps that you might encounter in Minnesota or the Dakotas, but we suffer when the temps drop below zero.  It rarely lasts for very long and the temps are supposed to moderate by the weekend, and everyone seems to be talking about the "deep freeze". 

Back to the skyline - Albany has many interesting buildings with distinct architectural features.  I walk a lot in the city for exercise and I seem to notice some new building or roof top detail, or a stained glass window, or piece of ironwork that I had not seen before.  Next time you drive thru or walk around the city - look around.  It can be interesting and there is so much history worth taking a look at.
