Hey folks... it appears that Photobucket (my photo host) has experienced a massive outage. They are supposedly "working on it" - who knows, by the time you read this, maybe the issue has been resolved. I am also without my computer at the moment - it is on the fritz - otherwise I would just re-up the pictures via Google. I apologize. A word of advice: DON'T EVER USE PHOTOBUCKET FOR ANYTHING!
I have some nice photos from Tomorrowland, 1962 style!
I love this first one, taken as the sun was setting on a lovely May afternoon. The colors are really fantastic! Lemon yellow, coral pink, blue-violet, deep green. The American Flag has already been lowered - it's hard to tell, but it looks like the Clock of the World says that it is around 5 o'clock.
Zooming in a bit affords us some primo vintage people watching. Look at the way that rocket gleams! Notice that the "TWA" logo is gone, soon to be replaced with the "Douglas" paint scheme.
Next is this picture, taken shortly before or after the first one; it's the Monsanto House of the Future, almost appearing to hover like a friendly flying saucer (no probing aliens here) above the lush landscaping. I've always loved that sign to our right. I love it so much I'm going to marry it.
