Shadow Shot Sunday 34 - Managua Airport















Managua International Airport, Augusto C. Sandino, in Nicaragua is a bright, spacious, airy kind of place providing a pleasant welcome to the country. This is the foyer and all the interplay of shadows, patterns, reflections and shadow writing caught my attention as I was waiting for my flight back to Mexico via San Jose....



















And where else in the world could you see such an idealistic cosy shoulder to shoulder relationship between the States and Iran and Libya... Don't you just love this admirably objective choice of clocks showing the International time??

Looks as though you had a fun trip and your shadow shots for the day are terrific! Love the sign at the airport -- you're right, that may be the only place we'll "that" group so cozy!

Have a great weekend!

This airport terminal is different from those in the US - it seems to offer more style and detail of the usual traveler's lobby. Almost artistic more than the usual secure yet sterile terminal. The world time choices are not the best, but I don't live there...

It's a much more stylish looking airport than most I've seen. Bearing in mind I haven't seen whole lot of airports in my life... The last photo of the clocks is wonderful!

Love the metro look to these airport shots! I'm not sure I would've thought of taking shadow shots at an airport, but these are amazing.

Great patterns and shadows. And yes, I do love the clock line-up. If only the nations could interface so smoothly.
