Laptop Luddism - Day 133 of Project 365

27/12/08

 

I have spent the whole day tidying up, or in reality moving stuff from one place to another in order to convince myself that I have been doing something worthwhile....

 

this shot was taken for today’s FGR and in sympathy for "ukimmeru's broken laptop" :(

 

The title "Laptop Luddism" comes from an early 19th century direct action group called the Luddites. They took a dislike to machinery, particularly industrial weaving looms, which they perceived to be putting them out of their jobs....

 

Up until today I had no idea how difficult I would have been to drive a screwdriver through a laptop screen.... in the end I had to use a drill !

 

Lightroom: crop, convert to b+w, adjust contrast, save to JPG.
