After yesterday’s effort I thought I might go with something a little different today, and was thinking about putting up a lomo-effect shot of a lily (I’ll explain wht I mean when I put it up), but I thought instead that I’d carry on with the marketing/advertising theme. A couple of people commented on yesterday’s entry that they thought it would be a good advertising image for the computer (which is a Compaq Pressario by the way). Well, thus far I haven’t had an email from Hewlett Packard (Compaq’s parent company) offering to buy it for an exorbitant sum of money, so maybe I’ll have more luck with this one ;-)
This was taken a few days ago, on the same trip where I took the arm in arm shot. What drew me to this is the probably all the things that led this machine to be designed this way in the first place; i.e. I think the images used on the twin halves of this machine are quite striking/appealing. I don’t think I would have been tempted to reproduce them had they just been posters (or similar) but I like the addition of the rest of the machine – the controls in the centre, and the vending slots at the bottom, both of which at least partially disrupt the ‘glossiness’ of the remainder of the image.
