LOL Actually, since I won't be back on here until tomorrow afternoon, I'm fine with you getting it this soon! These are amazing, aren't they?!

Give us a good one. I probably won't see it until after someone else has gotten it!

OK, I screwed up a little. I meant to get a photo of just the things in the ship. Looking more closely and referring to information on the site where I pulled the pic, in this photo they are actually being transported.

Not sure what to do, I had planned to ask for the location as well, but they're not even at their home location in the photo!

Google found the exact pic on a blog page, but I have scrolled the page three times and can't come up with it. And it's a looong page.
I don't think I am close enough.

Game on?

Yes, let's continue. Just to be clear, I'm looking for ID of the things in the ship.

Nicely done.

I had actually meant to get shots of the previous cranes in the Port of Oakland, the ones that inspired the Star Wars At-Ats. I'm glad you got it though - it was going to be way to easy for anyone from the Bay Area.

I still couldn't find it on that blog page I was on, but they did have a link to the photographer's site who took the pic. Not much of a description of what the cranes are going to be used for, but if it's good enough for you....

OK. This one might have to play out like twenty questions, but it's not too tough if you think like a detective.....

What town used to be located in this field?
(sorry for the cell phone pic)
