Summer in America

Summer is officially over, at least here in the US. During the last three months I had the opportunity to visit a couple of new places while on the road. I usually try to stay an extra day or two when I’m out on assignments in order to discover the area in my own pace.

This Summer I stopped at Willie’s Fish Pond in Virginia (which I first thought was a sea food restaurant). I met a homeless man who perform a flawless dance routine to Chic’s Le Freak at a bus stop in Detroit (he was not waiting for the bus) and shot a tremendous amount of images of skyscrapers in Lower Manhattan (don’t know why, I just love it). Oh and I went Upstate as well…. but more on that next time.

sovietpostcards:

This vintage postcard was made in 1981 and features the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance building in Moscow. It is a great example of Soviet architecture and is nicknamed “Kniga”, or “Book”, by locals because it is in fact in the shape of a book. The Council of Mutual Economic Assistance was a trade organization consisting of a bloc of Eastern European communist nations; its goal was to encourage trade between members and to encourage the economic development of each nation’s economy.
