Phone Home

The PBASE TITGC theme this week is “Communication”. So I shot these communication devices, some from the past.
Remember when a “portable” cell phone was the size of a brick?
Remember when you had to carry a special device to allow your notebook modem to connect from a hotel room and high speed was 25K?
Remember phones at home that had cords?

Oh the things we take for granted in the age of instant digital cameras and iPhones!

Canon EOS 40D ,Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
1/40s f/2.8 at 35.0mm iso640 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

all you need to complete the collection is one of those REALLY old ones that came in their own carrying briefcase & weighed ten pounds!!

You forgot the blanket and the green brush to dump on the fire....

Love those communication devices from the past but I'm so glad for the communication devices of today.
Hehe,those things were HUGE and heavy...just like bricks!

Very nicely done.
I like the PBase page open on the iPhone.
