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. #323249

Katrina McMeans 10/8/2005 12:04:30 PM

Thank you for such a positive and encouraging remark, Joy! ; D

Wendy Stevenson level-classic 10/10/2005 11:27:16 AM

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!!! #1937277

Katrina McMeans level-classic 10/10/2005 11:33:36 AM

Thanks for the nice, long comment, Wendy! ; D

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.
