From John Scalzi:
"Your Monday Photo Shoot: Take a picture of something in your house you used to use a lot, but now hardly use at all. This
could be a piece of obsolete technology, or possibly some equipment for
a hobby you no longer pursue, or just something you stopped fiddling
with for no good reason at all -- the basic idea is simply to highlight
something that no longer has that much use for you, for whatever
(A quick comment from me: I'm glad Cliff isn't doing this Monday Photo Shoot; I can hear him now. Enough said.)
I took a picture of a group of related items that I haven't needed for several years now.
There you have a milk strainer sitting atop a gallon jug; a milk bucket; and a butter churn. For about twenty-five years, I milked cows twice a day and had a use for all these items. For over a dozen years, they've been idle. But perhaps not forever.
My Jersey heifer, Secret, is waiting in the wings. In about 18 months, if all goes well and we find her a boy friend, I'll be using those items again.
If you have something around the house you no longer use, why not snap a picture of it and join in on the Monday Photo Shoot?
