Antique Linotype Typesetter Gear

Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.

This image of a antique Linotype typesetter was taken taken during Uxbridge’s heritage day festival.  The operator was nice enough to stop the machine to allow me to photograph this, all the time I saw it in my minds eye a image a classic photographer would have taken.

I have so much work to do; posting and updating this blog, posting images to various gallery websites to sell, growing and keeping my social network updated, and of course photographing along with adding new work to my portfolio.  When I started this project last winter I never thought it would be so time consuming, and have actually fallen way behind my schedule with the to do’s growing faster then the dones being struck off the list.  Two major concerns are getting a decent slide scanner to scan my library of 35mm transparencies and refurbishing my Epson 3800 printer to produce sellable archival prints.  Any ideas?
