Old Time Television Impressions

The early age of television and the design of older television cabinets has a Gernsback Continuum and Raygun Gothic quality. I decided to explore this a bit using some animal photographs that I have taken. Takes me back to my childhood and watching  Wild Kingdom , National Geographic Specials, and The Nature of Things. The Baboon was photographed during the African Lion Safari visit. The lizard is one of our two water dragons – more on our three lizards in a later post.

      Thank you John and Nia for including me in your lists. It is much appreciated. I was not sure of the rules. I will have to put a post together.

  2. Elmediat, this is such a cool post. The discovery of this subject matter composed in this post is both interesting and inventive. The components of the pieces work well together. Looking forward to seeing more.

      Thanks Walter. The “Gernsback Continuum” was in a collection of stories, Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded. Like many exercises in world building fiction, it makes some interesting comments on society.

      Thanks, Glad you enjoyed. I was doing some media literacy & history re-search and came across some wonderful shots of the old televisions. I couldn’t resist seeing what would happen if I combined some of my photos.
