Photography is an ongoing adventure for me that (re)started in 2009. I am interested in many kinds of subjects, from landscapes to animals to abstracts. But who knows what I’ll be shooting tomorrow…

    This is a gourgeous capture. Instantly this image reminds me of my blind grandmother who use to communicate via using a typewriter like this:) Also at the risk of exposing my age, we used these typewriters at high school to learn how to type – this image somehow makes this item now a priceless relic:):)

  • Thank you Maggie for you lovely comment. It makes me happy that my photo brought you some nice memories (at least I hope they’re nice…). And as long as you call yourself maggie44, nobody will suspect you’re actually almost 45 ;)

    Love old typewriters. Great shot with you D5000.

  • It’s funny how many people fancy typewriters! Why didn’t we stick with them :))

    My father had an old typewriter like this which he used for writing books.. brings back memories..

  • I hope they’re good memories (and good books!) Actually your name brought back memories too, about the TV-series Soap (I hope you won’t feel offended, it was my favorite), one of the main characters was Mary Campbell.
