Since 2011, I’m walking with my readers every Tuesday from A to Z, last week we had “i”, so this week we’ll focus on “j” – I’m sure you’ll also find a story, photo or a music title tagged with “j”: Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “j”!!! Myself I’ll focus on jet:

JET

FrizzText review: “The photographer Thomas Lieser is following for years his concept, to introduce Vienna’s unflattering imagine, beyond the gloss & glamour. You could make a book out of it! His sublime representation of decay is already contained in a parking lot photo (with a misplaced, discarded jet fighter), long before his famous series began with the documentation of abandoned shops, small shops, all of them went bankrupt.” – visit Thomas Lieser’s album CLOSING TIME:

    Love the black and white photo of the jet, but that of the flying ones was lovely as well. I was out and about yesterday with the in-laws and we saw a Chinook in the air.

    Here’s my “J” photo story…
