Other scenes in Vermont may look familiar this winter, and are just as creepy:
|Vermont in April 2009. No snow, lots of haze. Taken from my parents' deck.|
On the other, the lack of snow and cold this winter is certainly an ominous sign. As was the lack of autumn in autumn. (Of course, the lack of snow will change today, as a big storm moves into the Northeast. Why? Well I'm driving to Vermont, of course.)
Sometimes, the sky gets just that kind of eerie that makes for a nice afternoon, especially if it can be viewed from inside, on the couch, with a movie and a nice mocha latte. The other day, there was just one of those skies.
These pictures have been taken over the course of the last couple of years.
|Taken as the bus was coming to take me home, hence the blurriness.|
|Taken from my apartment a few minutes later, which is always an ominous action in and of itself, as I have to stick my iPhone completely out my third story window in order to get this particular shot.|
|Taken from the 3rd floor of the Massry Center for the Arts at The College of Saint Rose.|
|Wellington Row from behind.|
|Taken the same day as the Wellington Row photos, just up the street. These were taken just after my first semester as a student in Albany, in December 2008.|
|This one isn't quite so ominous, but it's pretty cool. It's the Trinity Methodist Church on Lark Street. Though not the case at the time this was taken, I now sing in the choir here.|
