Wrecks that is... Seems our street is a popular rendezvous spot with the panel van set... This one had to be escorted from the premises...


A Sad Loss to the City...

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
A sad loss to the city was the destruction of a pair of apartment buildings downtown as seen in this Polaroid of the buildings I'd taken many moons ago... Emporis's image of the pair On the 6th of March one of the residents - a smoker - found his recliner had caught fire. He tried to drag it into the hall but it got stuck in the doorway. He managed to alert his neighbours but was killed in the blaze along with three others. The two buildings - nearly a century old - were a total loss. Demolition has commenced - incredibly, a resident's...


The Birds Nest I Found

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
I'd been out walking after midnight when I heard the sound of cheeping baby birds... Investigating further and it seems some mamma bird has set up housekeeping in the rafters of a tire shop. Right on top of a fluorescent light strip. Artsey blur shot.


Winona and Her Big Brown...

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
err... emm... Well, a lady on the block... ...said it was a woodchuck. Was quite a sizable critter... ...even for something coming out of the woods of our town's Central Park.


Storm Damage

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
Winds were blowing so hard I could feel a draught in my 'computer lab'. Looking outside to investigate... Looking left... Looking right... ...and behind me for good measure. But, where did all this come from? Oh.. The new owners had been gut-rehabbing this 1930s-era apartment house all summer. Some of the debris out back... They must've run out of windows - or money for them... because the upper floor had been sealed in that insulation stuff all winter. The view up the street... ...shows how easily that styrofoam can get airborne. It had been raining... ...so the owner can add water damage mitigation to his list of cleanup chores. Later in the evening, the...


Neighbourhood Laundromat

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
Wash day for the house of Wentzel means a trip to the neighbourhood laundromat... Using the 'bonus' potato-eye camera attached to the cheapie-cheapie MP3 player I bought last summer... Artsey sweep of the room... Two shots of my laundry going through the motions... Artsey blur shot of the two retro arcade game machines... Somehow I don't think the 'Let's Go Bowling' game gets picked all that often... Ooh, ... There's also ...but, yeah.


Medical Gas Shut-Off Valves

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
At the hospital for tests and saw these... They were on the 6th floor of an older wing. One looks fairly new but both had warnings underneath that they were out of service.
