This evening I didn’t have a subject in mind for today’s photo/blog post, so I started rummaging through drawers looking for interesting objects to shoot. I came across my fist iPod from about 10 years ago. It is the one w/ the four touch buttons under the screen, black and white, and a 15 GB hard drive. I remember thinking how tiny it was to hold so much music. It was great to have with me on deployments on my submarine while I was in the navy. As you can imagine space is a premium and I was used to packing a Diskman, batteries, a battery charger, and two cases of CDs. Replacing all that with something the size of a deck of cards was amazing!
But anyway, it had died about 5 years ago. Being a pack-rat, I held onto it for some reason, i’m sure. But today I decided I wanted to see the inside. So I took it apart carefully (mostly) and took some shots to share.
The third shot I wanted to have a little fun with, so I tried playing with split toning. I didn’t really know what it did, but I’ve got a great idea how it works now 🙂
