friiskiwi: There seems to be quite a few entires of things 'not owned' by the author, has the rules changed? ( 5 years and 2459 days ago )
locksmagic: friiskiwi, i don't see anywhere that it states it has to be "owned" by the author, it does say in your house but how would you suggest we confirm that? ( 5 years and 2458 days ago )
friiskiwi: "show us your best old fashioned possessions!"
"Do you have something lingering in your home or office "
I'm not trying to be difficult, just looking for clarification, I have had so many photos removed. ( 5 years and 2458 days ago )
locksmagic: Again, how exactly are we supposed to verify that it is actually yours?! Are we expecting you to take pictures of your own stuff? Sure, but if you want to take a picture of someone else's stuff and claim it as your own then I suppose you can get away with it this time. ( 5 years and 2458 days ago )

This is my 1960's Bogen Enlarger... I still use this enlarger for turning my 35mm and 120mm film negatives into stunning Black and White Prints! Before the days of digital camera's and digital image manipulation...this was the beast that was the heart and soul of the darkroom. Points for those of you who knew what this was right off the bat, BONUS points to any of you who have ever used/ still use one of these! (5 years and 2462 days ago)

Staying in a little shack in Africa, electricity was not readily available, so this oil lamp was a necessity for lighting the rooms at night. Perhaps not such an irrelevance in today's world in the developing countries but in modern areas oil lamps are certainly old school. (5 years and 2456 days ago)
