Post-Industrial Landscape


Guess where we went for an ice cream cone after dinner.  As I got out of the car I first saw the colors in the sky and then I noticed the McDonald's sign and at the same time I saw the utility pole with the power lines.  I just liked the combination of all those elements.  Then I started trying to think of a title for the shot.  The words "post-industrial" came to me for no reason, which is strange because I have no idea what that term means.  So I come home and look the term up, and get this:  "In sociology, the post-industrial society is the stage of society's development when the service sector generates more wealth than the manufacturing sector of the economy."  So it's about hamburgers instead of heavy machinery!  I mean, where did that idea come to me?  The human brain is magic!
