This building stood where the Bausch and Lomb building stands today in downtown Rochester. It held retail stores, offices and some residential before it was torn down. I liked the way the side of the building was painted and when I found this slide it brought back memories. I like photos that are just design elements or just color for color sake. By the time I took this photo I had a good job and I was making real money (it wasn’t much but it was real). I could splurge once in a while for some color and I tried to make the most of it. I loved black and white but color was exciting and inspirational.
