Photographer's Note

Silicon Valley is replete with symbols, representing humanity’s imagination, and constant strive for more. These symbols are simple and easily recognized the world over. Some may even argue that humanity has found new entities to worship with the advent of so much technology.
Anyone who is reading this note will recognize what the letters Yahoo symbolize. The statue in front of the building is , Our Lady Of Peace Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ. I drive by this corner very often and it suddenly struck me that maybe 2000 years from now humanity maybe worshipping a whole new set of entities, maybe the pioneers our present times will be the gods of our future.
From where I stood to take this photo I could have easily walked to a Sun MicroSystems building, or Mcafee, or WebEx, and of course Yahoo.

, Here is view of this same statue from a totally differnt angle.

About the photo… It is not as sharp as it could be but it was bitterly cold (for local standards) and I could not stop my hands from shaking. It was a very grey day and the sky looked black and white. I toyed with the idea of cropping so around mid waist of the statue but I like the life humans at its base to give it scale. It was also drizzly. So over all I know it is not a very good photo, but I believe it is a unique combination.
The photo has been contrast adjusted, cropped rotated, and resized (significantly) incrementally.
