What Penn Station used to look like will make you weep with longing. In 1910, when New York City transportation terminal Pennsylvania Station opened, it was widely praised for its majestic architecture.

What Penn Station used to look like will make you weep with longing

Designed in the Beaux-Arts style, it featured pink granite construction and a stately colonnade on the exterior. The main waiting room, inspired by the Roman Baths of Caracalla, was the largest indoor space in the city — a block and a half long with vaulted glass windows soaring 150 feet over a sun-drenched chamber. Beyond that, trains emerged from bedrock to deposit passengers on a concourse lit by an arching glass and steel greenhouse roof. This may sound unfamiliar for present-day residents of New York City, who know Penn Station as a miserable subterranean labyrinth. Though the original Penn Station served 100 million passengers a year at its peak in 1945, by the late 1950s the advent of affordable air travel and the Interstate Highway System had cut into train use.

Ancient Trees: Woman Spends 14 Years Photographing World’s Oldest Trees

She has traveled all around the globe to capture the most magnificent trees that grow in remote locations and look as old as the world itself. “Standing as the earth’s largest and oldest living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on a greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment” writes Moon in her artist statement. Sixty of Beth Moon’s duotone photos were published in a book titled “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time”. Here you can have a sneak preview of the book, full of strangest and most magnificent trees ever.

Bonneville Salt Flats at Night

At night the feel can be otherworldly. The darkness of Utah's West Desert is punctuated here by a lone interstate highway and the town of Wendover, which provides illumination for the salt floor without overpowering the night sky.The green glow along the horizon is from distant mercury vapor lighting in the Salt Lake City area, while the orange glow is from high pressure sodium vapor lighting. Photographed about an hour earlier, the salt flats at dusk displays the surface texture of this expanse in a different light (literally!). Krpano.com - EBC_Pumori_050112_8bit_FLAT. G A L L E R Y.

As noted on the UNESCO website, “The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity…” Suffice it to say that out of the current 981 sites around the world, nine are in Cuba. To put it into perspective, the much, much larger United States has only 21. Old Havana and its Fortification System is one that you have been reading about in this blog. Another is Viñales Valley, or Valle de Viñales, as it is locally called. You can read all about it on the UNESCO site, but what stands out in our minds, besides the amazing karst landscape with its leafy, sugar-plum hills, is the agriculture, including tobacco farming, and wonderful, friendly people.
