A bit of history

For those of you old enough to remember the early ’70’s, maybe with fondness, maybe not, here’s an image I made while working for the papers. I don’t remember the reason for the visit, probably some urban removal project so favored at those times. This was in White Plains, NY more than likely for the bestowing of loot on the city to fold spindle and mutilate some blighted section so the Poobahs needed face time. The other characters were County figures and city puppets. Just thought I’d take you back in time.
Back then papers were black and white with a rare color image. It is so helpful to learn to compose in B&W; it makes for strong photos. There isn’t any color to help a weak image.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
