Laptop Luddism - Day 133 of Project 365



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.
