Ha ha to you 'state of the art' comment! I love this shot. Love it love it. A simple subject yet so effective. This is just the sort of shot I strive to find and yet it never happens for me. (I know I know I'll keep on trying!) There is an aminus member 'lux' who does some pictures like this too - that I really like, anyway!

Just to think, all that plugging and switching by hand is now done by a tiny chip. Lovely nostalgic image.
