Oooops!

Innovative use of a large format camera here. Linhof Kardan I reckon: it gets very dark in the corners of those viewfinders. I imagine there would have been very fruity language used when this was spotted in the darkroom the next day!

Are the mobile lounges still at Dulles?

Used to ride in them when I'd go through Dulles from 1987-1992.

Too Sterile

A perfect example of Saarinen's sytle....boring and antiseptic....

Makes you appreciate the USS Brooklyn....for a battleship, it had style
