Somewhere in China

Photo by Marc from the Thursday Lunch Bunch
Marc's job takes him to China on a regular basis. This photo is a study in contrasts. I don't know, but it looks like the complicated looking gadget in the center might be a very fancy motion picture camera. Notice the guy wearing the white gloves holding a pair of tongs, probably used for dragging iron rails across the floor or, alternatively, dragging someone's chestnuts out of the fire. Then there's the chalkboard with the schedule or maybe the ingredient mix for the next batch of whatever it is, and the automatic bubble-drubber thing-a-ma-jig in the background on the left. And where are we? Looks like an unheated, concrete warehouse with an overhead traveling crane (the orange bar in the upper right, supported by a fat iron rail attached to the wall). Doesn't look like the kind of place that makes computer electronics, but maybe this doesn't have anything to do with computers. Maybe they are making a movie.
