My Hometown Part 3

Jumping Jacks, Scotia N.Y. circa 1991

I found these prints while digging thru stuff for the lecture last week. I always knew that Schenectady, N.Y. was a great place to photograph. I remember watching the Peter Bogdanovich film The Last Picture Show when I was in high school with all the great b&w cinematography and telling my parents " that movie looks like". I think they just laughed.

Shoporama, Rotterdam N.Y. circa 1991

My Grandmother's House, Mt. Pleasant, N.Y. circa 1991
