From the land before iPods

September 11, 2009 Published by . 1 Comment

I was looking for something in my computer and came across this photo I took a few months ago. I was walking through an outdoor lumberyard and spotted this amazingly bright red “boom box” thing that has obviously been the still-working radio of choice for lumberyard staff for at least 15 years.

I think it’s so pretty. I want to throw on a pair of matching Reeboks and jam to some George Michael or something. Who’s with me? Boom box. Max boom for your system.

The giant lumber shelves it was sitting on went back at least 20 feet. Even though it was a beautifully bright sunny day, the light was directly overhead and couldn’t reach into the depths of the shelves, so the camera really caught exactly what the scene looked like: bright light on the front of the shelf with a fast drop to pitch black toward the back. It was really pretty- the kind of sight that looks like a still-life photo even if you don’t happen to have a Canon 5D in your pocket. And it makes you want to jam to George Michael or something. Anyone? Hello?
