My wife and I explored downtown Albany, New York on our recent travels. We were blessed with a combination of almost empty streets along with amazing light and a fantastic sky. The color in this photo is just as it was. I will share several pictures from downtown Albany over the next little while, because it has some incredible architecture, particularly around the Empire State Plaza. This shot features a few of the “Agency Buildings” (there are 4, simply called Agency Building 1-4). They were built and designed during the Rockefeller days and were primarily constructed in the 60s and 70s. They are very unique; futuristic in a retro sort of way, remniscent of how Star Trek might present an advanced society. No flying cars, but impressive none the less. On a secondary note: I have found Canon’s little EOS M to be a perfect walkaround camera when paired with the 22mm f/2 lens. It is capable of capturing very detailed images with excellent color (as you can see here) in a tiny package with noise levels as good or better than any of Canon’s crop sensor cameras. It was a great companion to the “big boy” on this trip. I will write a more detailed review before long.
