aurora borealis in Geddes tonight

I took these pictures tonight, while freezing in my driveway. They were taken on a Kodak Easy Share Z730 on the Shutter setting. They were taken with a 4 to 8 second exposure, iso 400, aperture 3.4, and exposure bias ranging from 0.0 to 2.0.

I wish that I could have truly captured the beauty that I saw in the sky. This will have to do.

Thanks to Brett for tipping me off to the event.

The Gaudiest Advertising in the World = Kirby's

I just can't let another moment pass with out mentioning the gad-awful Kirby's Ad/Tractor Trailer parked in the lot at Westvale Plaza. I am amazed that this is a legal way to advertise for your business. What a freaking eyesore, and it's been there all winter.

Time to move it on out.

p.s. The only saving grace that it has is that it takes my mind off of the empty Pep Boys building behind it.

Who Owns The Marble Farms Dairy Building?

Does anyone know? I think that it might be the perfect site for a Syracuse Real Food Co-op Western branch. Especially if hooked up with a local organic dairy farm to get the milk and ice cream flowing again...

Plenty of room for a coffee, tea, and milkshake bar too. Free WIFI. Sound interesting to any angel investors one?
