  • Tastee Freez shops began their march across America in 1950, catering to our seemingly infinite appetite for ice cream, particularly at midcentury. There were thousands of locations by the late 1950s, and the chain became a trusted roadside presence, like Dairy Queen. There are only a few dozen Tastee Freez locations left, and this is not one of them — at least, it no longer is. It’s now called RJ’s Place, and it’s a beautifully preserved original Tastee Freez building in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, where I have family and visit regularly. RJ’s has long caught my eye. It’s a popular spot — you cook good comfort food and they will come. One can’t always shoot it free of cars, so I am glad I was driving by at the golden hour a while back when I spied this tranquil little scene. That’s a sweet slice of Americana! #retrologist #northcarolinaliving #northcarolinaphotographer

  • Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Corcovado, means "hunchback" in Portuguese, is a mountain in central Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is a 710-metre (2,329 ft) granite peak located in the Tijuca Forest, a national park. It is sometimes confused with nearby Sugarloaf Mountain. Corcovado hill lies just west of the city center but is wholly within the city limits and visible from great distances. It is known worldwide for the 38-metre (125 ft) statue of Jesus atop its peak, entitled Cristo Redentor or "Christ the Redeemer". The peak and statue can be accessed via a narrow road, by the 3.8 kilometre Corcovado Rack Railway, which was opened in 1884 and refurbished in 1980, or by the walking trail on the south side of the mountain that starts from Parque Lage. The railway uses three electrically powered trains, with a passenger capacity of 540 passengers per hour. The rail trip takes approximately 20 minutes and departs every 20 minutes. Due to its limited passenger capacity, the wait to board at the entry station can take several hours. From the train terminus and road, the observation deck at the foot of the statue is reached by 223 steps, or by elevators and escalators.

The most popular attraction of Corcovado mountain is the statue and viewing platform at its peak, drawing over 300,000 visitors per year. From the peak's platform the panoramic view includes downtown Rio, Sugarloaf Mountain, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (lake), Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Estádio do Maracanã (Maracanã Stadium), and several of Rio's favelas.
