30 Days of Gratitude- Day 16

    Newer Older

    Today I am grateful technology, its amazing how far we have advanced in a short period of time. The gramaphone was what we used to listen to when I was a kid, now its an MP3 player or ipod, which you can take anywhere with you.
    I am also grateful that we kept all our old vinyl records. I still love listening to them occasionally, scratches and all

      I love the colour and the aged/ retro feel.

      Alas, I got rid of my last turntable. A good one too. I remember these and replacing the needles all the time. Bet you couldn't even get one now.

      Great shot.

      What a lovely, nostalgic photo :-) Vinyl records! I would love to play the ones we have at home, but I don't have a record player any more...

      Yes! I love listening to my records, too! Ray Charles just doesn't sound the same on my iPod.

      How wonderful that you kept this gramophone despite all the modern advances in technology, and still play your records. We have a box of LPs but nothing to play them on!!

      I completely agree!

      and, I was just scouring Etsy today for a vintage record player...I want to play my LPs!

      a couple years ago i was able to play an old 45 my neighbor cut just before he went off to vietnam. I dont think he had heard it played in twenty years. I think he recorded it in 69. when he got back he tryed to get the band back together with no luck. he plays trumpet in the church band where he attends. I think he is somewhat content, but deep down he wonders what if.

      I do like the angle here. We would love to get a gramophone in the house - give me vinyl anyday :)

      Nice - and technology has made the world more closely connected. I think that is good (most of the time)
