OOH …Here’s One Thing 

To fly is to fly is to fly…

Mr. B sends me an email and asks whether I am going to produce for this coming Monday.  I respond with “hey I’m on vacation this week and don’t think I can deliver for you.” Without missing a beat, the  inimitable replies with “hey you are not on vacation, you’re on location, reporting in from Europe, and besides it’s a tax write off.”

Hmmm… have to think about that one.  That’s what I thought my wine import business was for.   (Okay, just kidding for those who take me literally.)

In any event, below is a little “mélange” of European outdoor from my recent travels.  Needless to say outdoor is alive and well in the U.K. and Italy, albeit IMHO much more street level and/or place-based focused than the U.S.  I must say seeing the JCDecaux twins outside of London on the M20 (or was it the M5?) Was quite impressive as was some of Global’s and Ocean’s spectacular inventory.  

…But as Dorothy once said, there’s still no place like home (especially when it comes to large format with decent distribution).

Ciao Bella!
