Antique Royal typewriter, shot in morning window light.
This is a teaching typewriter; the keys have caps (a few of which are missing), so that
when removed, the student must learn what the keys are and type by touch.
Textures by Shadowhouse and Flypaper, black and white conversion and other adjustments in PS CC.

Exif: F Number: 20, Exposure Bias Value: 0.33, ExposureTime: 25/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 100.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS REBEL T2i

Gosh Peggy, I must be showing my age too, because I also learnt to type on one of these! What a nostalgic image! Love the capture too, of just half a typewriter! #10983137
