Hermes Rocket Typewriter

I saw this image on Freshly Pressed just now and it made an instant impact. And as I scrolled on down to see further pictures, it kept coming back into my mind – and when that happens I know that – WOW! So I’m reblogging it because, to me, this is one of the things that photography can be all about – a beautiful and engaging representation of the commonplace – its very well done. The lighting is superb, the reflection adds to it substantially, and the featureless black backdrop is exactly what is needed. I hope you like it too. Adrian

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    The picture pulls at the memory too..
    Mine wasn’t quite such a grand typewriter, no posh leather case, just a hard black plastic one. But I remember practicing my touch typing at home by typing up my other school homework.
    I was sitting on the floor by the window with my typewriter on a chair happily tapping away when a spider lowered itself down on a web from above me… And stopped between my eye and my glasses! Ahhh!

      My mother had been a typist long ago and, when I was five or so, she gave me this huge upright typewriter she had – I learned to type with one finger + one on the Shift >>> and that’s more or less what I’ve been doing ever since – for items that include books and theses … when I go in the pub and order 4 pints, I only get 3 … 😉 …..

      If you can touch type, I admire you hugely (do you mind if I call you hugely?) and also wonder whether you’re a space alien.

      Love the spider story! Do you have huge House Spiders rampaging around the living room as we do now? 🙂

        Feel free to call me Hugely, just don’t call me late for dinner. 🙂
        Typing is the direction my schooling was pushed when I was discouraged from my less feminine choices of woodwork and metalwork. The grey cells haven’t retained much of interest from my school years, but my fingers still remember their way around a keyboard. 🙂
        SPIDERS! I’d forgotten their indoor migration as the weather changes. I remember the monsters who moved in last year, quite aggressive they were too. Now you’ve done it, I’ll be checking under the cushions before I sit down and sitting with my feet up next to me on the settee.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
