Dusty Gears

typewriter gears

I was searching around the house today looking for something to photograph.  I found the old Underwood typewriter in the bookcase in the rec room.   The poor thing was covered up but it had a layer of dust on it anyway.   I thought I could get some unusual shots of it dust and all.    Here is the one of the gear mechanism.

I am joining Straight Out of the Camera Sunday with Jan at Murrieta365.   To join you must take a picture that you have not fiddled with.  Cropping is okay.  Post it to your blog and then link it to Jan’s.  Come on over and join the party.    Valerie


A very long time since I have seen this typewriter! And the gear mechanism creates a wonderful artwork!
Hi Val, That is an interesting picture of the typewriter. Love it. Have a great day and take care, Jen.

This is a fascinating photo! I think machines are interesting, and I have never looked "under the hood" of a manual typewritier. Thanks for sharing! ("Typewriter" is not in Blogger's dictionary!)

Hi Valerie,
What a cool photo! I thought it was an old sewing machine at first.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
