Musings About Writing, Photography and Teaching

And There Lies Buffalo

I was driving with two guys over back roads in New York State en route to Arcade, New York, when we came upon an opening in the hills and a city skyline seemed to magically appear on the horizon.

I wasn’t driving so I wasn’t sure where we were, but subsequent research determined that we were on North Boston Road near Hamburg, New York.

Some of my most pleasing images were unintended surprises such as this one. I didn’t set out to make this image, the opportunity just presented itself. It is what makes photography so rewarding.

Not being familiar with this region I had no idea we were this close to Buffalo and that there was a vista that would show it. But there it is in the distance over the tree tops. It was a magical find indeed.
