I am sure this symbol has been seen by everyone. It is the International Electrotechnical Commissions universal symbol for standby - turning our electronic devices into a low power state, not completely void of power consumption. However, according to the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers this symbol also can mean power. Pretty much this symbol is on every electronic remote to signify turning a device on/off. The more you know!
I was watching tv and noticed this green light glowing on one of my electronic devices so I decided that it would be my picture for the day. It turned out exactly as I planned it would.
Here are a couple of old cameras I have. Not sure the story of the one on the right; it’s a Voightlander Bessa 66 that shoot 120 medium format film and has been featured here on the blog before. The one on the left belonged to my Nan, it’s a Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Hawk-Eye that I believe she bought in Greenland while stationed there in WWII.
September 11th isn’t a day our generation will forget. When we were in NYC in August we got the opportunity to visit the old World Trade Centre memorial and I have one word for the whole experience - humbling. Surrounding the footprint of the original towers they have the names of the victims and on their birthday they place a white rose within their name. I tried my best to capture a picture of the memorial.
This isn’t my picture for the day, I will do another post later, but I felt today would be a good day to share this photo.
