downriver (colour and b&w)

the lower falls trail of letchworth state park essentially begins at the ‘127 steps’ that lead you lower into the genessee river gorge. once at the bottom of the stairway, the trail splits. to the right will take you right to the falls (as per the previous image post: the lower falls) while to the left will take you towards a bridge and the river itself. this is a downriver view at some point along the ‘left’ trail.

Lower Falls

Lower Falls (B&W)

referred to as the ‘grand canyon of the east ‘ by locals, letchworth state park is a feast for the eyes! photographed here is one of the three main waterfalls along the genessee river gorge: the lower falls. it is approached via a lovely hike through a wooded area that leads to the ‘127 steps’ taking you lower into the gorge. with a gorgeous fall day and vibrant foliage colours, i was in my element!

nicely lit as dusk was settling in, this is the art deco-styled buffalo city hall building. after scoping out the area around, i setlled on this vantage point to photograph it. it is a 32-story building and measures approximately 378 feet from street level to the tiptop of the tower. not only is it one of the tallest buildings in western new york, but it is also one of the tallest municipal buildings in the usa.

shack off the freeway

Shack Off The Freeway

driving in western new york en-route to nyc, this shack off the freeway caught my eye… i pulled over and set up my camera/tripod to take the shot. as I was putting my gear away, a police car pulled up behind me with lights flashing etc… i was told that what i had done was illegal and never to do it again – off with a warning, as it were… anyway, glad i got the shot!
