13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Unisphere located at Flushing meadow park in N.Y.

The Unisphere, was part of the World's Fair in New York city back in 1964, it was left there in the midst of today's Flushing Meadow park. Probably millions of people have seen it and admire it for the 50 or so years. I went to the Fair back then and the way it looked when I photographed it recently, brought memories.
