    These are pictures of items that I have collected over the years. Most of them have been obtained through my parents and grandparents. Relics are relics none the less.

    There are more to come.

    Comments please.

    I like how you set these up like portraits of the items. And of course I like the BW and the subject matter itself, because I'm into that stuff. The only comment I would make is that on "Video Relic" I would either like to see the top reel extend out of the pic just a bit, or have a little bit of background between it and the top edge. For some reason I find the edge of the reel rolling along the edge of the image disturbing.

    I wanted to bring the shot up slightly, but I also didn't want to cut out any of the base. I will be working with the projector more in this series, so I hope that I fix my error for ya.

    Impressive photos! Here's one thought...on the video pic what if you put the subject on the left side of the photograph but still oriented the same way. So the lens of the video camera is gazing across the barren section of the photo.

    These are a lot of fun to view. I really like this "mirror" shot and the radio relic - they are standouts for me.

    Hope to see more! :D

    Thanks everyone. I have a few more shots planned and I am still looking for one of my favorite 'relics'. It seems to have been shuffled in a move. You will most likely see more later on tonight.

    The clock has more to come. I am waiting for it to get dark outside. There is a 7 foot by 7 foot bay window near by and that is what I used for the lighting.
