Macro: Vinyl

The second in my macro series. Tosin is in possession of a really old classic record vinyl player probably about 90 years old with very old vinyl plates. It's a beauty to listen too because you get a sense that you are listening to history.

Maybe I'm having a bad day, I'm not too impressed with this one. If I were you, I would have focused on the stylus head of the player instead.

On the subject of vinyl, yeah they're still great. CD is too "clean" and lacks the warmth that makes music personal. It's too clinical sounding - even with high end CD players (I use a Marantz CD6000 KI Signature, admittably not the best nor the newest, but still no slouch either). It's a pity analogue media are going extinct now.

Glad you told us what the image was, if not I would have been looking at it till kingdom come thinking what it was smile

Macro shots don't really get me hot under the collar so don't really listen to me when I say I'm not feeling this shot. What the hell, what do I know? For me today, this shot has missed it mark.

Eye of the beholder stuff here. I really liked the composition without knowing what it was.

Now I know what it is, I think it's even cleverer. I admire the ability to "see" images and then create them with the available tools. This to me is the art of image making. I still fall into the machine gun school of photography, hoping that one or more images will rise above the mediocre. All of mine are mediocre in comparison with any one of yours.
