Adding Machine

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Adding Machine
Adding Machine
A picture of an antique 1918 adding machine that I bought from a garage sale for $3
I took this indoors on Tungsten mode with available window light.
Cropped slightly afterwards.
This is for sale, by the way...I'm probably going to put it up on E-bay soon.

    Katrina...wonderful tungsten mode. So sharp, too. I like that you are marketing it LOL...the capitalism goes along with the whole composition.
You have a lot of talent for such a young person...keep up the good work.

Great find and what a super deal you got for $3!!! You'll make a tidy profit on it I'm sure!! But I digress, the perspective, and composition is excellent making these mundane little buttons extra appealing! The tungston mode was a nice choice giving that nice blue hue!! Really nice work Katrina - on the find, purchase and image!!!
