These windows at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, California, showcase the living art that is the Pacific Ocean.
A security guard there said artists would prefer not to be displayed in this gallery because people spend more time staring out the window than at anything else in the room. (And as it happens, on this day, the other walls are bare.)
To my mind, one of the neat things about long-distance trains is being able to eat in a dining car or café car of some kind.
Above is the type of dining car used aboard Via Rail’s Halifax-Montreal train, “The Ocean”.
Below is a similar scene, captured nine years ago, in a different, older type of dining car that was once regularly used on this train.
Difference between the two: The newer cars don’t have a full kitchen, just a galley where they can prepare simple dishes and heat catered gourmet meals.
Happily, the meals are still served using real dinnerware.
EDIT: I should add that Via Rail’s Vancouver-Toronto western transcontinental, “The Canadian”, still uses those old-style dining cars. The decor has been updated since I took the photo below.
