Text Detection RESTful API

Building upon Google Cloud Vision, one of the APIs I maintain returns just the BBOX surrounding text within images. This is commonly used for detecting text in social media profile picutres and censoring out rude/inappropriate words.

As the screenshots show, posting to getBB with form data "file" as a binary file type, we recieve a detailed JSON payload from the server.
