Photo(s) of the day

Well, obviously the Atlantic In Focus site is now one of my favorite sources for amazing images.   Here’s my favorite from a project described thusly:

In November 1971, the newly created Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a massive photo documentary project, called DOCUMERICA, to record these changes. More than 100 photographers were hired not only to document specific environmental issues, but to capture images of everyday life, showing how we interacted with the environment and capturing the way parts of America looked at that moment in history.

Alright, had to add this one, too:

How in the world does anybody ever get a car out of there?!

    Really interesting photos. Two places that I definitely would not want to be. Thanks for sharing!
