American flag hanging inside the empty main hall of the new Oculus New York City, the WTC Transportation Hub – PATH station. The World Trade Center Transportation Hub is the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s name for the new PATH in Lower Manhattan, New York City, USA. In march 2016 the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Lower Manhattan officially opened to the public. The new hub replaces the PATH train station that was destroyed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Over 12 years in making and construction and costs of 4 billion US$ in public money, the new train station is for some a symbol of both ‘governmental waste’ and ‘architectural excess’. The center is the Oculus glass-and-steel structure designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
One Hundred Nights Video
Today I was in the mood to play around a bit in the early morning with some photos out of my Nightshot Photo Collection and rendered out a video slideshow. I named the video ‘One Hundred Nights’ as I quickly selected just exactly 100 photos out of all my Nightshots.
Those 100 shots were made in the following countries:
USA, Germany, Turkey, Mauritius, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Oman, Japan, Canada, India, United Kingdom, Italy, South Africa, Austria, Slovenia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Ireland, Greece, Russia, Morocco, Croatia, Taiwan, Myanmar in total from 27 different countries.
I`m sure you can name a lot of those locations and countries, maybe even all of them? Maybe next time I might make a game out of that idea :-)
In my enthusiasm I picked a bit too fast some shots in the 100 images selection this morning, as some countries & locations repeat too often for my taste…but whatever, it was a test..and I had a lot of fun building this slideshow video.
Hope you like it. And a ‘Happy Easter to all of you reading my blog!!’
Enjoy the long weekend searching for easter eggs and the longer daylight in the next months after switching your watches and towards summer daylight saving time.
