It's the rare NYC car wash where you look out over an arbor, including a cherry tree in blossom.

Following a link from the Polish Cultural Institute of New York to BookExpo USA at the Javits Center later this month, I found this hero of the Soviet working class instead. I was curious because the PCI site suggested Polish children's books would be featured. (Try it here.Click on link for BEA website.)
I enjoy how many icons of Soviet agriculture, industry, and transportation are crammed into the relatively small frame. And check out that Lada!

Shot on iPhone 6 campaign, this shot is by Brendan O. of Copenhagen. It occupies the dedicated Apple billboard at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, which is visible to BQE drivers heading east (earlier post). The lanes narrow and curve just there to get under the bridge. It's easy to imagine the PR gang at Apple having fun with idea of harried BQE drivers desperately trying to stay in their lanes while their eyes are drawn into this bit of Copenhagen street art--if that's what it is. All the way down the rabbit hole.

Like standing beneath a Roman aqueduct, perhaps. (Better, actually, since it's exceptionally well served by buses, one from Queens and one from Brooklyn.)
Sorry I didn't get to meet the artist in situ. You can see some more of his work on his website www.danielgdasilva.com.
