My View From Here.
I am Gerald J. Skrocki, 58-year-old resident of Amsterdam, New York, freelance photographer and graphic designer with a degree in Visual Communications Technology. Retired from my first career as a NYS Correction Lieutenant, I worked in New York’s most heinous maximum security prisons. I am also a Vietnam era veteran having served my country as both an enlisted Army Medic and a commissioned Army Infantry Officer.
This blog displays my photography and describes my life in Amsterdam, New York. The blog contains my thoughts on local politics, human rights, the arts, history, electronics, cooking, gardening and I even delve into religion. I am inspired by writers who tackle subjects that others dare not. With no political aspirations, I tell a story from my point of view. People either love this blog or hate it because of that.
I volunteer my time and photos to not for profit organizations that contribute to the well-being of the local community.
