Nice phone photo of Union Terminal, the rail station in Cincinnati that was built in 1933 and which now houses several museums. The Amtrak train between Washington and Chicago also stops there. The place was pretty much empty when I was growing up in Cincy and it’s nice to see it being used again — although the interstate system and air travel pretty much guarantees that the Ohio River Valley will no longer bustle with rail travel as it once did.

Here’s another cool pic:

As seen yesterday from Metro Rail near the Pico station for the Blue and Expo lines. The old-style Kings jersey definitely compliments this guy’s lid. Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals is in Newark at 5 p.m. Saturday. BTW, hockey-inclined readers should check out yesterday’s New York Times’ feature on Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.

Pretty amazing image shot last summer in downtown Los Angeles. The stand-out color and detail was produced by combining three images into one — i.e. the HDR method of photography. Click above to view a larger image, which is even more impressive. The exposures were taken with a Nikon D50 Great work, Neil!

Go ahead and guess where this photo was taken. Look closely for some hints. Hint: football is played there. Answer is after the jump.
