All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

3. Brown Box Camera - 16x16 Original Signed Fine Art Photograph - beautifuldarklight
4. It Used To Be This Way - Signed Fine Art Photograph - starrybluesky
Perhaps I've been watching a little too much Science Fiction television lately, but I'm really loving old and obscure technologies like these cameras and typewriters. I just imagine these pieces attached to some sort of fantastical gadget in another dimension or looking through time. Now I just need a few of these laying around the house.

Love your blog! I'm a fan now, for sure. Thanks for using my photo, I see it in a whole new light now.

Fantastic pick of old technology, when beauty in the machine counted just as much as functionality. Thank you for including my work, and may I say, this is one of the most visually appealing and focused blogs I've ever seen!
