• Eliane • said...

Yay, l'unisphère right in your backyard! So fitting for today. Happy August!

Ming the Merciless said...

It's fresh off the press!! I went to Flushing-Meadow Park less than 6 hours ago with the sole purpose of taking this photo for the theme day.

Talk about dedication-huh?!?

Kate said...

What a wonderful choice for theme day for a group of international bloggers.

thwany said...

now that's dedication!

USelaine said...

I love art to do with globes and maps - great choice, Ming!

Monika said...

Wow, that's a wonderful one, Ming!

Rafa said...

this was in a Will Smith movie, wasn't it? maybe Men in Black or ID4

Keropok Man said...

Wow, you made a trip just for theme day? Yes, such dedication! :-)


Oh, I can see where I live on the big globe. Excellent choice for taking it as this angle. haha...


Happy Theme Day!

I must visit Corona next time I'm there. This is a very beautiful sculpture, and so similar to the one in Manila!

Have a fab weekend! Happy theme day.

Jilly said...

My goodness, is that impressive or what?! and your dedication, Ming. Well it's much appreciated. Great choice. And fab photo.

tigerfish said...

Looks like the rotating globe of Universal Studios in LA :D

Gecko said...

Look, there I am WAAYYY over there! Hmmm, no wonder it's so hot! Obviously just a joke since it's like 8 deg. celcius here at the moment!!!

marley said...

Thats a large sculpture (to say the least!) I look forward to more to come :)

Abraham Lincoln said...

That is one nice piece of metal.

Kitty said...

holy crap, Ming, great minds think alike. I took a photo of nearly the same globe, but in a chrome finish.

lol!

Peter said...

I have a photo of it from 1965 (somewhere)!! "World's Fair".

Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do said...

Thank you for your dedication, Ming. I saw a photo of the Unisphere in the 'Landmarks of NYC' exhibition in Chennai and was wondering how it looks now. Thanks, again!!

PJ said...

Gorgeous photo (I saw Kitty's photo for today and thought at first it was this. I'm a huge MIB fan and so I'm thrilled to see the "space ships" in the background. I just started a daily photo for Pensacola and signed up with CDP yesterday so I'm not registered for this but I'm going to participate anyway.

Sharon said...

Beautiful. I've never seen it before. It makes me want to search it out the next time I travel to NY.

Chuck Pefley said...

Ming, I made the trek to Flushing Meadow a few years ago to photograph "world calss" art :) Great choice!

ken mac said...

Jazzy said...

babooshka said...

You could fit Ramsey In there. Ok Not quite, but it is enormous. Biggest brashest metal image of the day.

Kuanyin Moi said...

Fantasticico! Funtabulous!

Lily Hydrangea said...

everytime I drive by this I still think it is the coolest thing!

Chris said...

I have always wondered where that globe was. Thanks for sharing the photo, Ming!

USelaine said...

Uh oh, Ming. You need to edit your post to include the required code! You have the optional list, but back at the portal, there's the short code link that the gallery picks up. The computer scan can't pick this up with just the list.

Thiên said...

I love the globe shot, Ming. Very nice and clean.

Hilda said...

Now I remember where I've seen this before — Men in Black! LOL!

Sailor Girl said...

A-W-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!
