This shot is from my neighbor's sidewalk about three houses down. It was a beautiful Saturday morning for July; sunny yet cool. I carried my camera and tripod to Amy's Place (really greasy spoon)up on Main Street where I enjoyed a comfortable breakfast. You have to be able to ignore a lot when you eat at Amy's. Our section of Buffalo is called the "University Heights" neighborhood. Really eclectic. Professors, judges, politicians, doctors, lawyers, bankers, students, unemployed, under privileged, thieves, sex offenders and criminals live in University Heights. The Buffalo Garden Walk tours our neighborhood; just weeks after the police picked a recent college graduate's body off the center of Main Street after being shot in the back over an argument concerning a girl. You need to lock your doors and some folks have alarm systems. We have a dog that barks but would lick you to death before biting you. The city has been a real learning situation for me..
