Bell Labs, Murray Hill, NJ, where the transistor was invented, and where I worked for many years. Twilight applies to both the time of day and to decline after so many years of glory. Even though it suffers from lens flare on the lower left, I chose this image from many exposures because the car adds interest - this will teach me to bring my primes for night shots.

See my web site for more Bell Labs / Bell System nostalgia.

I was a Lucent/Bell Labs person as well. I must have subconsciously understood the reference to twilight as well. It was good while it lasted!

How'd you do that with the one car? Lots going on, and that's good, since it makes you look closely.

Thirds are layed out well. The exposure was just a bit to long and darn that one distracting car. Sign and building are nicely focused. Looks like your lense fogged up a little on the left above the car.

A bit fuzzy for my taste

It's really cool to see a still car with a long shutter speed.

Forgive me for being terse. Uninteresting suject. Poor lighting.

I like the way you got the car to ghost like that.
