Photo Hunters~ Old Fashioned

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When pondering this weeks theme, I began to think a lot about technology and how quickly things are progressing. There were several things that crossed my mind to photograph that wouldn't be considered a common "old fashioned" item, but in the end, my love for old things one out.

A friend and co-worker graciously offered up her Grandfathers OLD FASHIONED telephone for me to capture. Due to time constraints and not wanting to be responsible for this precious item, I simply snapped a few photos of it at work.








What a beautiful piece of history. I can't wait to see what others have deemed OLD FASHIONED! Have a great weekend everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog this week.

Oh Corey, that phone would go great with my photo hunter entry! Great pictures, I love that the last two where not square to the subject. The photos have so much more interest that way. Have a good weekend!

That's a beautiful piece. Growing up my grandfather had a pair he used as an intercom system between his cottage and his boat house. I remember as a child always being stumped as to how these things work.

Oh, that's cool. I grew up with an antique phone like that in my great-grandmother's living room. It had actually been used in that house back in the day.
