In order to counter the clean sterile look of this area I decided to use a 3400 ASA black and white film. Which made for quite an interesting effect. The photos of other areas I included as a sort of contrast and to show there are a lot of nice natural settings to be found, some very close to the office parks.

I made the photos in a rather confined area actually, as there was enough to find once I started looking. This is the logo of web methods, the company apparently had moved back in Fall and
an office auction for the remaining stuff had just happened about a week ago. Also the week after this logo was gone and preparations were underway for another company to move in. It caught my eye, it's one of the more interesting company logos and certainly a nice object to photograph.
Same building, such a friendly all American reminder. ;-)
Same building, parking lot. It was pretty because moss had been growing on the asfalt. Add to that the fresh green trees and chirping birds an it almost seemed tranquile.
Different angle and spot.
A lonely phone, as far as I could check it was not working. Too bad. ;-)
A grave stone in the Santa Cruz Mountains, in a graveyard not far from Highway 1.
I loved the mosaic, very pretty and joyful. The variety and sometimes even colourful gravestones say something about the people living around here.
The message is clear, no?
A nice view from the top of the graveyard.
Broken clay, on the "salt dikes" in Alviso.
