Natick Back Alley

My original home town Natick isn't a rough town, but it has back alleys anyway. This is an alleyway between the historic 1850s firehouse (now an arts center) and office and retail buildings on Main Street. There are parking spaces in the alley for the people who work in those buildings. I guess you could call me an "Ashcan School" artist, finding interesting visual material in the back alleys of the world.

Reminds me of an area I used to work in. Revivified old street; there was an alley, and we would walk down it to the back door of the Thai restaurant. 2001.
