One of the general issues as we design the Lexington Community Center is how to furnish the building so that we preserve the maximum ability to reuse spaces throughout the day for different types of activities. Here is an entry in that category for pool tables. The price at Amazon looks outrageous, but the idea is a good one. I also wonder if this is a regulation sized pool table?
I am reminded of a card table I saw in President Truman's Little White House retreat in Key West Florida. Apparently Bess Truman didn't like the image of the President playing cards, so she insisted that the table stay in its closed configuration when he wasn't playing cards.
Yesterday, the Committee met for the first time in the building at 39 Marrett Rd. To mark the occassion, I took this photograph with my Ricoh Theta camera. This Photo Sphere is the result of one button click with no subsequent processing. Improvements in the exposure, lighting and color balance could be achieved by use of standard photo processing tools. The output of the camera is a standard JPEG. The auto rotating and explorable image is added by software provided by Ricoh.
