Quando si avvicina la fine dell’estate provo sempre quella sensazione dolceamara di malinconia.

Ho ritrovato quella stessa sensazione guardando le foto scattate da Cornell Capa nel 1946 per una storia di copertina di Life. Queste immagini catturano quel senso unico, dolce e malinconico legato alla fine delle vacanze estive.E voi? Anche voi provate la stessa cosa?

When the end of summer rolls around I always have that bittersweet feeling of melancholy.  Something I found in these photos taken by Cornell Capa in 1946 for a cover story in LIFE magazine. These pictures capture the unique, sweet, melancholy feel of summer vacation’s end. And you? Do you feel the same way too?
