high tech low spot

I took this shot a couple of days ago where construction workers are still finishing the new football stadium. When I worked in construction we used to call these type of leveling device a "dumpy levels" and the more technical ones were called theodolites - they were complex to use and set up.

The new generation gadget in this photo is high tech and much easier to use because it is self-leveling and takes no time at all to set up. Mind you, when I went into the seating area of the stadium there had just been some rain and I noticed that some low spots on the concrete flooring where fairly deep puddles of water had accumulated. So much for new technology!
