a lot of pics around this pic look like a contemp. german photographer took them. germans love david hasselhoff AND rectilinear weltschmertz.
i will have to check them out. these i've been doing were inspired by stephen shore's "uncommon places" and stuff like that. taking pictures in terre haute was a lot easier than in new york for some reason. probably because terre haute has more blandness and "ugliness" which is what appeals to me when it comes to buildings and urban landscapes.
