Plane Spotting - I
It is about 6:45 P.M. and I thought it would be interesting to photograph
a Southwest Airlines
737 climbing into the evening departing
SJC. Can you see it?
Maybe I need a bigger target.

Plane Spotting - II
It is early afternoon, and a bright new
American Airlines 777 climbs into the
cloudless Silicon Valley sky enroute to Tokyo. AA Flight 129 is the
longest scheduled passenger flight departing from
San Jose International Airport, traveling 5154 miles
to Narita/Tokyo. OK, enough of the plane spotting, not a good application for
this camera, at this distance!

Industrial Renewal - II
It is about 7:55 A.M. we are having unusal weather, slight rain, there was even
lightning and thunder last night. This picture was could have been more interesting,
as I saw a kind of rainbow, seems a bit of it shows up in the picture. Remember the
picture of industrial renewal last week?
Progress happens fast. The demolition
contractor pulverizes concrete and pavement. Much of the product of this demolition
will actually be reused. This photo was taken from San Tomas looking east towards
the remains of the former Memorex building in Santa Clara. I think I will try for something
on the lighter side next time.

Morning at the self-storage building. These buildings house 2 stories of self-storage
space. Why is this popular in Silicon Valley? Many reasons, here very few houses
have basements, and thus the garage is devoted to storage. But here in Silicon Valley
the garage is a special place. In addition to storing cars, people often start companies in them. If you want to see some Famous Garages, just
follow the link.

How could one mention Silicon Valley, and not Intel?
We are standing on Juliette Ave. off of Mission College Blvd. in Santa Clara. The first picture is an inter-building bridge at Intel, and the next picture is one of the Intel buildings at this site.
The tower is actually on Juliette but its address is 2350 Mission College Blvd. I've
been to this building alot when Heuristics Search
was located here, but they are now
in downtown San Jose. This tower will soon have companions nearby.

The Sky Near Dawn
It was clear this morning. This is the pre-dawn sky facing east in San Jose.
This is a shopping center, at El Paseo De Saratoga. We are facing Saratoga.

Los Gatos Creek Park
It is a clear and bright day. These images are of a percolation pond in Campbell,
CA. In the lower picture, are a pair of ducks enjoying the pond. We are looking
to the south towards Los Gatos, and the hills. There are a number of percolation ponds
in this area. They help to replace the ground water in the Santa Clara valley. This
one also provides a setting for a park and recreation. Nice day today!
