I took this photo earlier this year at the Telephone Museum in Maitland, FL. Since I work in the field of computer applications, I immediately tried to find some similarities in the desktop of the early 1900s and today’s more technological work space.
Apart from the typewriter and the Morse keypad, it was kind of a stretch to bridge the two eras and workplace tools. Obviously, the pencils could replace even the typewriter as a means of writing messages or letters. The Morse keypad though definitely fell into the instant messaging category although nothing like my Blackberry Curve.
The following are some terms that (perhaps stretching things a bit) could bring the two work worlds together:
Word processor, Instant messenger, Display, Attachment(s), Document, e-mail, Function Key, Hardware,
Illustrator, Network, Platform, Telecommunications, User
I wanted to get out early, but when the clock said 5:00AM, I knew it was too late – but I set out anyway. Here’s what I got.
Hope you like them.

Welcome to the newest member of the family. Cute as a button, just like we thought he would be. Mark and Brenda make the most beautiful children. YIPEEEE He’s here!
This is the Wachovia Bank building in Orlando, Florida.
Intrigued with the glass and reflections – it was begging to photographed as I’m sure many have. Notice the stone work on the sides – a bit grimy eh? Either the bank or the management company isn’t keeping the house up to neighborhood standards (a sign of the times)? Needs a good power-wash.
