Unfortunately, per the contest rules, a picture of a picture of the subject is not acceptable. The photo must be of the subject itself.

I guess I don't understand: the specific object in the picture is old and obsolete technology.

Now it is me who doesn't understand.

Your photo shows a book. This is what I consider to be the subject of the photo. Is a book "old technology" now? I know we are in the electronic age, but I still read from a real book.

The sketches in the book shows old technology, but this then is a "photo of a photo", which was what I thought you were showing.

Did I interpreted this wrong?

I guess it doesn't matter- if the image is that confusing, then it's a fail.

In any event, THANK YOU!, for mentioning it was on-line. I just downloaded it. Some of this stuff is hilarious. I like the child proof poison bottle on page 14. I can't stop laughing. I think I'll have to get a hard copy now.

Oh my god. "How to keep your pig from eating her babies". :oldsurprised:

There goes the rest of my night. :oldlaugh:
