Memories of old / Memorias de antaño

    Newer Older

    Not so long ago, a typewriter was top technology. Not so long ago there were less communications, yet more time. Not so long ago life was less technified, yet more natural. Not so long ago. Have we evolved as much as technology?

    No hace tanto, una máquina de escribir era alta tecnología. No hace tanto había menos comunicaciones, pero más tiempo. No hace tanto, la vida era menos tecnificada, pero a la vez más natural. No hace tanto. ¿Hemos evolucionado tanto como la tecnología?

      very nice picture.. and i hope people evolved as much as techonology, preferably even more. i think you can't stop the time and changes - none of that to be considered unnatural. the only thing you can do is to try and keep the changes in borders of improvement. :)

      Very interesting photo!
      Great idea to capture typewriter keys!

      Well, I think technology has been advancing way too fast. Yet, we have less time. We are rather controlled by technology. I wonder where we are going...

      Thank you for your warm comments.
      Good night!
