Incredible architecture. It's no wonder their cars and planes look the way they do.

Nice shots.

Neat architechtural design, good captures, but like so many of

these new technology buildings with blackened windows that

make us all wonder what goes on inside and what is ittheyare hiding? :-)

TCav

Sometimes they even use the connotations (?) from the planes when they advertise their new car models

That is true. On the other hand they are very open minded - no fences


Thanks for viewing

Thanks for viewing, Mark

I visited your web-site. Great photos. I looked at the SAAB pictures. I suppose you like the design.

(The typical SAAB driver in the US is said to be an architect or other intellectual. Perhaps it is about the same in the United Kingdom?)

(I have had two SAAB cars myself, the SAAB 96. They were shaped like an airplane wing. They also had a great function, directly translated "free wheel". Great thing to use that innovation and at the same time listen to Mr Bob Dylan in his album "Freewheeling")

Just a question. Where you ever stopped by anyone and asked why you were taking photos of the building? I have a similar kind of operation here near where I live. You get funny looks from security people if you just drive past the main gate let alone try to take photos.

Hi, BEECEE

There is no gate whatsoever. Anyone can drive or walk up there.

I always stop and talk to people when I´m out taking pictures. It enhances the experience.

A software engineer said it was ok to take pictures, so I continued. A service man said there was no problem at all. So I continued further.

There might be some cultural difference, I don´t really know. You could always ask them if you want to take pictures.

There are many photo opportunities in areas like this and in industrial environments, I think.
