Infobox photograph needs a scale[edit]

I noticed that the Infobox photograph of Apple corporate headquarters resembles a ghost town. One of the first rules of photography is to incorporate a scale into the picture. This picture must have been taken on Sunday or a national holiday. A replacement photo with people in the picture would be in order. Anthony22 (talk)

Apple's new Headquaters known as Spaceship HQ[edit]

Hi! According to the web Apple has just begun opening its new Headquaters known as Spaceship HQ, see the following: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2804587/apples-spaceship-campus-is-almost-finished-and-these-aerial-pictures-show-how-amazing-it-looks/ & http://fortune.com/2017/01/30/apple-spaceship-drones/ & http://learningenglish.voanews.com/a/new-apple-headquarters-spaceship-building-is-almost-complete/3722949.html - could the new HQ image be uploaded to Wikipedia and instead of the old HQ image in the userbox which is currently using File:Apple Headquarters in Cupertino.jpg could it be updated showing the new campus (Headquaters) if possible.... Regards, StewartLittle 14:02, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Stewart Little: I'm not sure we have any images of the new Spaceship headquarters with suitable copyright licenses. I think someone needs to either personally take a photo and upload it to Wikipedia, or we need to wait for photos in the public domain. But I fully agree with you that we should have an updated image, and I hope a good photo arrives soon! LocalNet (talk) 14:47, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
