The Way We Were

I found this piece of hulking machinery - rather endearingly called a paddle tug - at the National Maritime Museum.

I am not exactly sure why I clicked the picture, except that the machine looked so lovely, outdated and redundant.

Will journalists too become a redundant relic in some museum someday?

hehe. you are right. there is something nice about it.
i found myself admiring it full size on the comp. the oversized cycle chain, the brass shiney pipes and the red wheel behind looked pretty cool as well.

also i was looking so close at it that i could see you in the pic wearing your grey jacket and denims? folded from the bottom.

Oh my god, yes. You can see me. I'll have to preserve that picture.
