Natasha Fomina is back in Russia after a recent two-week internship with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. Hopefully, someone in Texas arranged to get her the front page of the Saturday July 8 edition, because it is most definitely a personal keeper.

Fomina’s article sources data from Sightsmap to list the 10 most popular spots locally for people to share Instagram photos. Squeaking in at #10 is the side of the building where she worked:

It’s one of the most colorful and bright building walls in Corpus! The installation, titled “Endless Sunset: The Colors of our City” by Sandra Gonzalez, will not just beautify your Instagram account, it will also prove that you really were in Corpus Christi, Texas. The large art work on the side of the Caller-Times building downtown pays tribute to the beauty of local sea life and other creatures. It’s full of South Texas spirit and shows a love of Corpus Christi and its culture.

Fomina, a student at Perm State University in Russia and a contributing editor to Zvzda, visited New York and Washington D.C. before heading back home. She can be found on Instagram at @NFomina.
