The Zimmermann Tapes
« on: March 12, 2019, 08:38:52 am »

This secret telegram was intercepted and decoded by the British and given to the Americans, who, enraged by its contents led them to their involvement in WW1. This picture was taken in Bletchley Park, the former Top Secret code breaking establishment in Britain. It was here in Hut 6 that Alan Turing and his colleagues created the first programable computer in the world.

Taken using an ageing iPhone 6. I keep toying with the idea of dumping all my trad gear and getting maybe a Pixel3 as my image making increasingly veers more to the illustrative than pure photographic 'quality'. I guess in the end I'll just keep using both... But frankly, as I don't print and just share on-line, a simple PhoneCam might be all I 'actually' need. I'm a little wedding to the photographers mantra of quality always. Maybe I need to jump out of this straightjacket...

Hah, I was expecting a link to a new stash of '60s Bob Dylan recordings made surreptitiously in some hotel room or bathroom.  ;D

I like the light and framing, gives an idea of the place, with its intrinsic mystery. The guy looks a little bored though :)
