Another gap in my photo library was temporarily patched. I’d been meaning to give a visit to Google’s Alphabet’s Youtube HQ in San Bruno for a while. And this time I was just passing through anyhow.

Turns out another subject on my list was right across the street. Walmart eCommerce HQ is a long way from (Ar)Kansas – apparently they are willing to spend top dollar for a spot in our high rent district.

As is often the case, this isn’t a particularly interesting subject to look at. That having been said, these sort of stock photos are among the most used of those I’ve taken. Seldom do photos I’m proud of actually see the (back)light of screens around the world.

Lighting was less than ideal and I’m sure I’ll go back for a repeat sometime. But at least I’ve got this covered. But how a company can make the fortune 500 list by hosting largely millions of funny cat videos remains a mystery to me.

On my way back from some other business I opted to take a detour through San Bruno. Searching for the address of YouTube, I stumbled upon a Business Insider article that Walmart’s eCommerce HQ was next door. Two birds HQs, one stone parking spot.

Once again, not the most interesting subject. But I got the usual logo closeups and the like that tend to sell. Another box checked off, yay!
