Silicon Valley Style: Phase 2
After the tile-roof industrial building style, another became popular: Concrete with stone embedded in the surface. This building is in Santa Clara, but you see this style in large parts of Sunnyvale too.

Looking Down at You
You’ve seen this tall building weeks earlier on this site, now here we are above the Pruneyard looking down. Tile roofs from the original buildings, and a nice view of Campbell to San Jose.

Was a Bank
We use fewer banks these days, though my accounting professor said to always visit your bank in person. This building was a bank not too long ago.

The End of 87
Look just above the line of stopped cars, you see the abrupt end of Highway 87 at Highway 85. What does this mean? To me it says Silicon Valley is never done, but always a work in progress!

It was a dark, rainy day today. From a second floor window I tried to get a picture of the trees outdoors for a kind of rain forest effect. Really, it did look quite nice. But due to the darkness, the electronic flash on the camera was triggered. Through the reflections you can see some of the trees.

San Tomas Aqino Creek
We have had lots of rain, but still the Creek is pretty low. This concrete creek is to the west of San Tomas, and goes under the road at this point.

Silicon Valley Landmark: Winchester Mystery House
We are looking across Winchester Blvd. at the Winchester Mystery House. We owe you a closer picture of this landmark sometime.
