this is a very bad scan. shot in june 2014. airport of goris, armenia, near shinuhayr village. my father told me, he was a pilot, that they were calling this airport an aircraft carrier, because the runway ends at the gorge border. no other place for an airport in the vicinity.

mamiya 1000dtl, zenitar fish-eye 16mm (i did not have other ultrawide angle lens that time), kodak cft.

remember these airport timetables?

there was a whole industry to provide them. now this industry is obsolete. (:

there are big screens instead.

remembered a story: there was a huge Lenin sculpture at the Republic, previously Lenin square in Yerevan. When it was dismantled, for years the place remained free. Then there was a huge cross, for a couple of years. Then - huge tv screen. That was very symbolic. Today, thanks god, it’s empty.
