Sleepy Sunday in downtown Troy

Troy on a Sunday afternoon is not an especially happening place - at least not in February...

In the summertime downtown Troy hops. The Farmer's Market is in full swing, most cafe's have outdoor seating and the galleries and shops stand with their doors open welcoming you in. In February, however it's cold, windy and raw - not great for walking around. But I still like it here...

I love good coffee and I have a favorite place, right in downtown Troy that I like to go: Spillin' the Beans. They have a small, focused menu - the food is good if a little expensive. But the coffee is the thing for me! Deep and rich - its perfection.

Where shall we go today?

Well we didn't have to go far for this one... A couple weeks ago, before my life fell apart, we had a spectacular sunset. It had been snowing all day and was still flurrying as the sun went down, painting the sky in tones of red, orange and yellow - it was as though you were inside the sunset. The snow falling around you sparkled like multi-colored glitter being poured from the sky and it was magical. This photo was taken outside our offices in East Greenbush, NY. Since I'm the late crew I'm usually there after the sun goes down so I always make sure my little Lumix camera is charged up and at the ready when I go out because you never know when something like this is going to happen!

I haven't been very good, have I...?

My challenge to take a photo a day fell by the wayside. Life intervened and lots of stuff conspired to help me to fail - including my natural inclination to not keep schedules. So a change of tack - instead of taking a photo a day I will post a photo a day and hopefully have something inspiring to day about it. I'm not always inspired by the things I see on a daily basis and I can't always go somewhere that does inspire me. But I have been - lots of places. So allow me to share them with you. Gloucester anyone...?
