Running Notes: Urban Fox

On Sundays I run with a group called the “Officially Unofficial Running Group” which is headed up by a very accomplished runner and natural born leader named Julie.  We explore new running routes in and around Buffalo every week and we often take turns choosing locations and charting each new course.  This week took us to Buffalo’s Outer Harbor on Lake Erie where we encountered this striking woodland creature wandering around curiously close to the city.

East Side Photo-Walk -12/21/14

These are some of my pictures from another of David Torke’s amazing photography tours of Buffalo’s East Side.

The main event was hiking to the top of the gigantic snow mound formed from the nearly 7,000 truck loads of Lake Effect snow that was transported to Buffalo’s Central Terminal from South Buffalo and the southtowns after the historic “Snovember” storm of 2014.  The mound is 40 to 50 feet high and provides a rare vantage point for shooting the Central Terminal and the surrounding neighborhood.  The Central terminal is now being restored, but parts of it remain abandoned and run down.  We made our way inside and explored as part of the tour as well.

Also pictured, scenes from the Belt Line and some neighborhood shots.
