This pod is where I spend my working days ~ usually :)

This extension to our factory was built around three years ago and does not appear on the map yet ~ all you can see is the original building of about 25,000 sq ft, now the total area is around 35,000 sq ft. More important is the amazing sky of the morning of September 29th 2009

A very special and nice perspective Nick, nicely done.

Greetings Arthur

A.Lebacq I specified the entire layout and design of this building Arthur ~ not much to crow about I know ~ the pod is its only redeming feature to the outside world, but inside it works a treat. Thanks for your more than kind words and visit ~ I wish you a glorious start to October ~ Ciao nick

The Pod ?... let me guess .... It could be a relaxing place where eating might not be its function but it certainly connects with that somehow ... mine is made of marble because it's best, having one is very posh you know !... but in the end it really does exactly the same thing, now what might that be ? ;)) Ciao, Nick

Nick Knack, ~ It is totally devoted to being a place of in activity Nick ~ my office in other words :)) I'm having difficulties in imaging a pod made out of marble ~ the view would be limited:)))) Amber might be slightly better ~ Ciao nick

...I think you understood what I meant !... Amber better than marble ?... Which is one more expensive ?! :))) Nick

Nick Weall on October 1, 2009

Nick Knack ~ Ooooh ~ you were so off base Nick that it never even entered my head to what you might be alluding :)) Amber is far more expensive that marble and can be very beautiful ~ but then anything does when the time calls :)))

Ciao nick

Nick, so this is where you work! IT is great to see a part of your life Nick, a place where you spend a lot of your time. Looks sorta empty here, how many others work there with you? And, I have to ask, what is your job here Nick, I've not heard you say, but I could have missed it. Yes, that sky is quite pretty on this morning. Thanks for sharing this, it is very interesting.

Best regards / Sarah :)

Sarah O ~ It looks sorta empty Sarah because it is so early in the morning 0648hrs only one other chap and myself are in at this time. Most people come in at 0830hrs, then the car park would be quite full. 18 months ago we had 42 employees, now due to the recession we have 24! I'm the boss for what it is worth :) ~ I'll shortly upload one or two more general external shots to record the fall, but of course I have masses of shots of the factory, warehouse and offices that lie within, but Pano is not the place to advertise our wares :)) Naturally we have both trade and retail web sites where much more can be learnt. Thanks for visiting Queen of the Cakes and all the very best to you and your girls :) Ciao nick

Now that sky casts a lovely light across your building GH...and the pod gives the whole building a strange aspect...it definately is different and I can see how you get your wonderful view....quite cool really little GH ;)

but tell me...how dead do you have to be to be dead slow :)

Steve Drury The pod gives me great views Steve including the bird feeders, but it is too far away really from the bird feeders to take shots from the office, although of course I have a pair of field glasses there to check on the elusive Goldfinches for example. Business is no better or worse but at least we are still there which in itself is an achievement these days ~ Just another five years to go before the recession ends :~))) Bet the Euro doesn't last that long.

Thanks for your good wishes Steve ~ All the best ~ nick
