Rusty Rotary.

The Orlons - Don't Hang Up [youtube.com]

It's been tough for me to find inspiration lately and so I have to resort to weird antique macros every once in a while; here is the result in action. This old rotary phone my parents left in a box around these parts actually works… it just doesn't have the little holder for the earpiece . Still, I like the look of the dial and it made me think of Hitchcock - which is never a bad thing. Cheers.

Nikon D70s | f/1.8 | 1/4" | ISO 200 | 50mm

Cool close-up - we should preserve these old technologies; much more tactile than modern stuff.

Oh my gosh, when I enlarged it really brought out the depth....very cool and appealing image, Mike!!! Hey, my favorite places to go shooting when the weather's bad are antique malls. People look at me strangely when I ask if I can take pictures....but who cares?
