This is a massive building that I couldn't fully capture from my car window in heavy traffic. Conjures up an image of hundreds of people wearing green shades and thick glasses - frantically but nimbly pounding their fingers over a numeric key pad. The big boss, in a 3-piece pinstripe suit with gold chain attached to his hunting case pocket watch, is pacing the aisles - eyes darting back and forth in an effort to spot any slackers.

The thing I like about the detail shot is that you can't really guess how big/large the detail is before you see the wide shot.

That's a good example where #1 would have been a keeper for me and #2 would end up at some CD/DVD just in case some1 asks if I had a full view.

Bob. Thanks for the offer, buddy. I'd like nothing better than to get better acquainted with a fellow poster. Who knows? We could even swap some Coca Cola bottling plant stories. And, of course, the same offer holds true for me here in north Texas. But, you'd better hurry as we are planning to return to S. Calif. later this spring.

Story teller and poet. You've done it again, Walter. If you ever leave this forum, it's going to be rather dull around here!

Great shots. I've seen some tv documentaries on this place and the big boss you describe really doesn't live there!
