The Egg is by far one of my most favorite things to shoot in Albany. It is an architectural masterpiece. From what I have read, construction started in 1966 and building it took twelve years to complete. There are two theaters inside the Egg that host a number of musical and comedy acts throughout the year. My girlfriend Rose even saw Sully Erna of Godsmack perform a cozy acoustical show in there.
Since I have been in the Albany area, I have loved shooting in Empire State Plaza. There are so many great subjects there. The tall buildings, the sculptures, the reflecting pools and of course, the Egg. Whenever I go down to the plaza, there is always something that begs to be photographed. There is also a great museum there to visit. It’s a great place to go with the family.
What’s your favorite memory of Empire State Plaza? Do you have pictures of the plaza?
