Stockade Gateway Banners raised

. . . 

Yesterday afternoon (February 1, 2010), a pair of banners featuring Lawrence the Indian (see above) were placed at the Stockade Gateway entry to our Historic District, at Erie Blvd. and Union St.  The banners were sponsored by the Stockade Association [which paid a $783 expense for the banners, per the Dec. 2009 Spy], and fathered/midwived by Rob Gavel, with the assistance of Gloria Kishton.  Jim Salengo of the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation managed the installation.  I was honored to have a photo that I took last Fall used for the banner.  [Click to see the original photo of Lawrence, which was taken on October 16, 2009]

Here are a few more images of the new Stockade Gateway banners [as always, click on the photos in this posting for a larger version and scroll over the image for a description] :

  1. I must say I love your pictures, Isn’t nature just the most wonderful subject to photograph or write about. You never know what you will find. I walk to the river everyday and am suprised at what I find there. I thought you would like to know, my cousin lives in Gallup NM and on the new there were pictures of the Mohawk River with all its ice flows so beautiful.

    • Thanks for your kind words, Donna, and for the news from Gallup. I am so lucky to live next to this lovely river. The pictures basically take themselves. Please say hello if you see me in the Park.
