As a teenager in the 80's I had lots of cassettes, all now are boxed up and in our garage, I just cannot bear to throw them away, even though all the ones I want I have replaced on CD.


Taken for the Macro Monday theme of "Obsolete"

    Ace shot - love the CP feel; the red is searing and the greenish shadows are very cool. Yeah - I found a cassette the other day and didn't know what to do with it. I've got everything on CD, and not even sure I have a tape player in the house anymore, but it just seemed wrong to throw it out.
