ALBION – On the way home tonight I couldn’t help but feel a little spellbound by the moon aglow. I didn’t have a big zoom lens on me so I couldn’t get a super-duper photo.

I think the one of the moon between the front columns of the Orleans County Courthouse was the best I could muster.

The picture of the courthouse, built in 1858, next to the early 1970s jail shows perhaps our finest building next to one of the least attractive municipal structures in these parts. The county has made several energy efficient improvements to the jail this summer. I’ll try to a have a story on that project sometime soon.
