    Here's a thread for the inevitable Spaceship Earth photos that we all love to take.

    I used to work in a place like this, except that the room was filled with the computer and its associated peripherals (the 512k of memory required one refrigerator-sized cabinet) and the women were relegated to data entry jobs.

    And here she is again, this time from the front. I got lucky and the ride slowed down a bit at this point.

    Saw this composition browsing through flickr and wanted to give my take on it. Used the Tokina 16-28mm lens at 16mm, tripod and did a three photo HDR image using Photomatix Pro.

    This was a particular challenge to photograph - aside from being a little too close for my 35mm lens on a crop body, it's a bit on the dark side!:

    My first car was a red Chevy Vega but it was a hatchback.

    How many times has this happened to you? You're slaving away copying a manuscript on a tight deadline, but you can't concentrate because of the snoring coming from the next cubicle.

    As per the first PixelMania... I'm usually the guy snoring in that next cubicle over...

    @Scottwdw posted his "failed" experiment from Test Track yesterday. Today, it's my turn. Coming down the back side of Spaceship Earth, I glimpsed a long row of video monitors spewing forth someone's vision of the future. The next time I rode, I tried to capture that. Unfortunately there are only one or two spots where the curve is just right, and you have to find something for the camera to focus on, etc. Needless to say, I'm going to try a few more times until I get this right.

    I found that communication in the days of early man was sometimes far more advanced than we ever thought. This caveman had drawn a very advanced message - using Phoenician alphabet AND modern English language, and even referencing modern technology, as he proudly points out:

    He spent the entire day pointing out his message to the thousands of people passing by in strange plastic cars, but no one seemed to be helping him out.

    Forty seven years ago, this is what almost everyone in the world was doing: Watching Neil Armstrong step onto the moon. Interestingly, the TV in this scene is playing the same CBS coverage of Apollo 11 with Walter Cronkite that I watched at the time.

    My bad, I'm always getting those two mixed up. One a great cyclist and the other an awesome jazz musician.

    You know everytime I pass these two, I just feel like they're so familiar to me. I just can't place where I've seen them before!:

    Just something about them is so familiar...
    ;)
