TV Room

Right now I am watching the Cowboys and the Packers on a 42 inch hi-def digital TV. A much more enjoyable experience than it would be with this small (probably) black and white set. You can see a bit of the rabbit ear antenna at the back of the TV. I chose to present this in monochrome in deference to the era.

SONY SLT-A77V 16/5 second F/9.0 ISO 400 24 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

I think the antenna, and the T.V. might be a collectors item these days Harry.

@Frances: I think you'd be lucky to find a dump that would take it without charging a disposal fee.

I can hear the mother now, "Not so close to the TV; you'll hurt your eyes!"

Black and white is the perfect choice for this 'antique' scene that reminds me of a Dorothea Lange set.

Excellent tones and wood grain patterns captured in this B&W composition!! The B&W definitely adds vintageness as well. I hear the game you watched was a good quasi-Super Bowl.

The black and white version fits the old TV very well. An interesting collection of old chairs. We thought black and white TV was great in its hey day.

The B&W was the perfect choice. It harks us back to another day and age.
