old radio

I think this is my first You Capture post that doesn’t include a photo of Small Fry. On purpose.

In order to stretch myself a bit more for these photo challenges, I thought it might be a good idea to shy away from my number one photo subject every now and then.

So when Laura and I ventured out to the flea market on a blissfully warm Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t resist snapping shots of what technology used to be. An old transistor radio. A beat-up velvety turntable. Can you imagine a time when these were radical breakthroughs? Kind of like how our great-grandchildren will feel about the iPad.

I wanted to take more, but my stomach prevailed and we had to cut our visit short. Still having a hard time staying up on my feet with this pregnancy. Such a bummer.

The flea market is such fun. Not only for the treasure hunt, but also for the people watching! Next time, I might just have to grab a lemonade and plop myself in a cushy antique chair to watch the action. No one would kick a pregnant lady to the curb, right?
