Found this record store in Falls Church, VA. It reminded me of the store described in Nick Hornby’s ‘High Fidelity.’

Sign of the booming economy in the DC area. I was struck by the angles of this view of a construction site in McLean, VA.

Virginia City General Store   4 comments

Grocery shopping, 150 years ago. I can only imagine what wonderful sounds that old cash register made when used (see last pic).

Abandoned Amusement Park   Leave a comment

Captured at South of the Border truck stop. Sad that these rides were decommissioned, I’m sure at some point kids LOVED to stop here to enjoy the rides while parents got a break from the incessant ‘are we there yet?’ from the backseat. Click on any pic to see them in their full glory (i.e. slideshow format).

South of the Border   1 comment

Stopping at South of the Border (between N. Carolina and S. Carolina on I-95) is like a trip back in time. This giant truck stop is definitely a 50’s throwback! Click on any pic to see them all in slideshow format. I especially liked the restaurant shaped like a sombrero.

Squint a little and see how the shadows turn into stairs (or maybe you see something entirely different?).  I enjoyed the angles and the play of light and shadows on a recent walk through New York.

Old New York   2 comments

Near Wall Street in lower Manhattan, a few buildings remind us of how it looked in the early days before skyscrapers took over the island. The second  be looks like a precursor of the Flatiron Building to me.

So many streets in Paris feature buildings that seem to lean against each other, each one at a different angle.

Paris Icons   5 comments

Yes, just about everyone knows these and they’ve been photographed from all possible angles – but when you’re in Paris it’s hard NOT to take pictures of some of the icons that make this city so lovely and unique:
