“Souls dwell in printer's type.” Joseph Ames

 

Thanks so much for my ninth EXPLORE! March 21, Highest #209

 

Having worked within a Newspaper, I have a huge appreciation for the printing process. With the sound of the press whirring, I would go down to the press room, put on my earmuffs and just watch. Unfortunately that press has now been dismantled and I wasn't able to save any of the letter blocks. However I acquired this one recently which was used in an old press in England, it now sits in pride of place beside my Mac, in my office.

 

This also marks the first time since the start of the year that I've used my trusty 'Nifty Fifty' (50mm f/1.8 II), since I've had my Macro lens, it hasn't been out of my bag, so it was nice to give it a spin this afternoon in the lovely sunlight.
