Photography...........the way I see it (Moderated by BLeafe) / Re: Projects update
« Last post by BLeafe on September 21, 2018, 08:52:09 PM »
This post contains 15 images - 12 of whch are from the Current on River project. The other 3 are oh-by-the-way-the-Moore-Street-project-is-practically-next-door images, so let's do those first:

1-3. Not to sound dismissive or anything, but since I parked on Moore south of Salem, I had to walk north on Moore to get to Current on River and these 3 shots were readily available, so.....................

4. The reason I went to Current was because of this shot I took from home earlier that morning. Oh, no - were more floors being added? I needed to speak with someone there.

5. After my long hike of a whole block, crooked Current was in my sights (I could straighten it out a bit, but then I'd lose the top of the crane - it's bad either way).

6. A different, closer angle of what I had seen earlier from my living room

7-13. My usual clockwise shoot around the site. By the way, in #10, southbound traffic on River St is being stopped temporarily while a large vehicle utilizes the street to get from one part of the building to another. The is one of the reasons why there have been delays for the last few weeks for southbound traffic there.

14. Construction fever has spread across E. Berry St to the east entrance of the Giant Farmers Market, as seen in this 2-photo stitch. In the sequence of events, this should actually follow #8.

15. The last thing I usually do here is a 3-photo stitch of the SW corner of the site, standing on E. Camden St near the side of the library. The two gentlemen in the hard hats confirmed that what you see here is, indeed, the top floor of the building, so there should be no more loss of view from my apartment - at least from this project.

I took these last week along the river walkway on the north and east sides of Costco:

1. Anyone for water tennis?

2-4.  These were taken right next to the fence opening that leads to the small pier where I shot the Hess tanks and do photostitches. I appreciate the gesture, but they're not my size or style (though I DO like the composition of the sneaker tree shot).

5,6, On the eastern side, a choice of comfort levels is offered: bare-bones double or comfy single.

7. Interesting municipal vehicle - look for it in our next parade.

8. I've posted this broken marker before, but since then, it's grown a flag with a fat red stripe on top.

9-11. From the above-mentioned small pier: a residential project in a perennial Bogota flood zone. Keep an eye on that one!

If a referendum on the $165.1 million building and renovation plan for Hackensack schools is held on Jan. 22, 2019, which of you will vote "yes" and which will vote "no"? My mind is already made up: I'm voting "no."

The story from The Wretched (err The Record) reports the plaques "were pried from the ground."

There is some talk in Hackensack that the plaques weren't stolen at all, but removed for safekeeping.... The suggestion is the veterans "forgot" this, and told police they were stolen after the vandalism was discovered.

Eric, this looks misplaced. Where did you mean to reply?

yes, Homer, I remember that one.  One of many downtown proposals that sat gathering dust.  The one I was talking about for Banta Place extending eastwards was much older, and it was something I found while researching things. It wasn't a current news story I experienced.
