Modern technology

Back in 1974 child, if one wanted to listen to music in high fidelity, one employed a machine like this one called a record deck. This Sony record deck was cutting edge technology and played music recorded - or cut - into vinyl discs.

 

This is a time lapse shot of the pick up arm moving from its rest onto the vinyl disc taken with my first 35 mm camera - a Russian Cosmic Symbol, a splendid thing providing one didn't challenge it too much.

 

I tried to repeat this shot several times over the years but never as successfully. This is the original and best.
