I’ve just been busy delving into the past, discovering the early days of perfume, so I thought it might be interesting to go in the opposite direction and explore the future in this week’s travel theme. To start things off, our daily harbinger of the future; the dawn of a new day.
Seattle’s Space Needle was held to be the pinnacle of futuristic design at the 1962 World’s Fair.
Ok this might be pushing it a little, but I always think those human statues look freakily futuristic, like cyborgs or something.
Metal trees on the beach at Coney Island – I found them quite grim to be honest, they struck me as a worst case scenario in a future where we’ve destroyed all of the real trees. ♫ They paved paradise, put up a parking lot. ♫
The stunning landscapes of central Turkey may have been hewn in the past but they put me in mind of alien, futuristic planets in galaxies far, far away. Seriously, can’t you just imagine Star Wars’ Kylo Ren having a bit of a mope around on those hills?

There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in. – Graham Greene
I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day. – James Joyce
