Sorry. I figured people would know what it was. A people transporter - an elevator.

Definition of transportation:

(trnspr-tshn)

n.

b. The state of being transported.

Nice shot of the elevator. You have to remember that Selvin, being a native of Hawaii, may not be familiar with this form of transportation.

Folks, to show how focussed we are sometimes,

I'll relate my experiences toyou on this photo. I looked at the design elements on the doors., the surrounding lintel, the reflections in the glass, etc.

I couldn't see any clues to tell what it was. I just didn't look at the two directional lights above the doors. duh

Mea culpa, mea culpa, it's defnitely a mode of transportation.

Aloha

Thanks for posting the definition. I'd been wondering why this excellentChallenge wasn't called plain, simple "Transport". It's the style worldwide now in English to add impressive syllables. We still have some way to go to reach "uptransportificationisationator" instead of "lift", fortunately.

No problem, Selvin. I guess I know what it was since I was there! It's actually stainless steel doors. I had wanted a shot straight on, but it was so shiny you would have seen my reflection in the doors.

I wish I'd had a photo of the glass elevators in the hotel in San Francisco on the Embarcadero. I think it's the Hyatt Regency. The elevators are all inside and the building slopes inward to a point at the top. At least that's what I remember from 30 years ago.
