The image is a rectangle with a longer width. The image shows a wall with a board of employee of the month portraits. In the foreground there is a coffee machine, which is placed right up against the wall on a counter. However, you cannot see the counter. In the background of the image is wood paneling. On the left side of the image there is one half of a wood panel. It is three inches. There is then a break in the wood, where the panel stops. Another panel starts, but it is cut off by the employee of the month board. This panel looks to be about two inches in width, but one inch is covered in shadow from the employee of the month board. The wood paneling is a light yellow wood color with faint ingrains of darker wood. The lower third of the wood paneling is completely in shadow from the coffee machine. The employee of the month board spans the whole width of the image, leaving the paneling to the left and a diagonal strip of paneling to the right. At the top of right panel it is two inches in width but at the end of the board, only a half of an inch of panel is seen. If you divide the height of the image in five rows, the employee of the month board covers four of the rows from the top, leaving the last row to be paneling. If you divide the width of the image in four columns (where one column is the width of the coffee machine), 3 column widths remain that expose the paneling. The paneling sizes go in this order from left to right. I will describe the objects in front of the panels sporadically. One inch, 5 inch panels. Between those panels in the center is a clear bag of coffee filters with a red(top) and black(bottom) label on it’s right side, with two golden words written on the label. The coffee filters are visible and are about 5 inches in height. There is a gap of half an inch and then a classic diner sugar pourer (clear paneled glass with a metal top). It is the same height as coffee filters and sugar is filled up to halfway. 3 inch, 4 inch panels. In the middle of those panels is an off-white canister that is an inch taller than the sugar. There is the same canister directly next to it, and they are about 2 inches in width. They have red stripes near the top and bottom. Between the current and the upcoming panel are two same height stacks of white styrofoam cups. There is a small gap between them. They go above the wood paneling and and cover an inch of the board. Covering half of the stack of cups closer to the right is a small woven wooden bowl with yellow Splenda packets – barely visible, 3 inch height, 4 inch width. 9 inch, 4 inch, 3 inch panel. Between panels 4 and 3 is the same woven bowl except filled with pink sweet and low sugars. 4 inch, 4 inch, 3 inch panel. Between panels 4 and 3 is a lone Styrofoam cup, 4 inches in height. 4 inch and then 6 inch panel and then the image cuts off. These are simply estimations of what they are in real life, not the image.

Residing 2 inches away from the left side of the image, the coffee maker takes up about a quarter of the width of the image. The machine resembles the letter H that’s been placed on its side. Where there are spaces in the letter H are simple pieces of metal with vents. On top of the machine is a stack of coffee filters that are put slightly off-centered from the middle of the machine, more towards the right. On the top left of the machine are two black on and off switches. On the top right is an unreadable rectangle label about two inches wide. It has a yellow border and two words one on top of the other that are also in yellow. At the bottom of the coffee machine right in the middle, are buttons in this order (all upwards rectangles of the same size). A rectangle with a shining red light circle, an on/off switch, another on/off switch, another red light. In the machine are two pots of coffee. The one on the left side has an orange top and a clear bottom, on the right it has a black top. They are typical diner coffee pots (bottom is oblong circle, top is pourer with handle). They both have small white instructions written on their sides. The coffee is filled up to half in each pot.

The employee of the month board has a 2 inch width dark wood frame surrounding it. There are also 3 horizontal strips of the wood that splits board in four. Leaving 4 inches from the left and right sides of frame, the pictures of employees are placed leaving 2 inches in between each of them. 8 columns, 4 rows of pictures. On the bottom left row of board there are two pictures missing, due to being covered by the coffee maker. The rectangular pictures all have the same gray two inch border surrounding them, placed between the wood strips. The pictures are all portraits of white men in suits with ties that show from the nipples up, and not showing the shoulders. Below the portrait on the frame is an unidentifiable name tag and the background of all the portraits are black. Starting from upper left corner, I will go through the rows and say color of suit. Black suit, black suit, gray suit, black suit, black suit, tan suit and balding, gray suit and balding, brown suit, black suit, black suit, gray suit and white hair, gray suit and white hair, black suit, black suit, black suit, black suit, black suit, gray suit with bowtie and balding, tan suit and balding, brown suit, gray suit, gray suit, gray suit, black suit, tan suit, black suit, black suit, black, gray.
