It's hard to get away from it all. This photograph was taken in our hotel room in Nice, France in April 2001. I remember being amazed then that this Philips TV was exactly the same model as my TV at home in California and it was the reason I took the photograph. In the years since I have noticed that hotel rooms all over the world look pretty much the same. So do cars, houses, furniture, double deck buses... I could go on at great length about this phenomenon we call globalization. The reflection in the TV screen shows the beach and the Mediterranean Sea beyond.
