Photo of the day: I GOT TIME ON MY HANDS


Photo of the day: I GOT TIME ON MY HANDS – Time seemed to stand still in the year 1962 during my private tour of the TWA Flight Center¬†in New York’s JFK airport. The flowing timeless architecture by Finland’s architect Eero Saarinen makes you feel as if you are floating through the space, which was his idea. He said he wanted no focal point at all, just sweeping vistas. Therefore, the clock was an added idea on the part of TWA (Trans World Airlines) insisting a clock be placed somewhere within the terminal. Here it is above the floating central bridge/walkway. Sadly time did not wait for Eero Saarinen, he died shortly before his building was completed. But time actually has stood still here today, since the building has been officially landmarked and is slowly being renovated for Jet Blue airlines.


ELECTION CAMPAIGN: “Election Protection – If your candidate doesn’t win, don’t worry. Here’s your chance to get out of the country with a free flight.” Jet Blue’s clever New York subway campaign.
With voter suppression disgustingly prevalent in so many states as if this was 100 years ago, all I can say is VOTE = VOTE = VOTE !¬† Democracy & freedom first! Most of you know which candidate I want to win, but if you will not be happy with the way things turn out in the next four years, the first and foremost question you should be asked is “did you vote?”. If your answer is ‘no’, you have no right to speak for the next four years, period. V O T E !
