Remington - Mechanism by PeterBusser

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

A very old typewriter. It belonged to a grandfather I’ve never met in my life. I was born after he died, so there was no chance to. His typewriter has been in my livingroom since I moved to the appartement where I live right now. It’s there. Part of a history I don’t know. Being an object to show how much has changed. And what’s still there.

First of a series of… don’t know yet how many I will upload.

    lovely lighting and detail on this great old machine – love the hint of the letters typed over many years onto that roller.. what stories it could tell…

  • Thank you Maggie! I too would love to know about the stories it could tell… Maybe I should kneel down next to it and listen for a while ;-)

    Nice framing and lighting…you should think about submitting to moody group

  • Thanks Russ! And it’s awaiting approval from Moody Group right now. Thanks again for referring to another interesting group. Joined many new ones the last few weeks and am loving it :-).

    typically, I’ve worked backward through this series…! Great to know a little of the history of the typewriter, though I guess it has many secrets it will never be able to reveal! A wonderful shot, Peter :)

  • It will always be a thing of mystery in my living room. And I like that special look and feel the typewriter has.

    Wow wonderful perspective on this, love the detail and lighting Peter..wonderful job.

  • Thank you Kim! I stil feel the 21 year old Minolta 50mm F2.8 is a great little lens for shots like this. My other grandfather bought the lens back in 1989. I’m using it ever 15 years and can’t do without it!
