beau b&w, avec le moderne (le telephone portable) et la vieille marchine a ecrire
it looks like someone is composing a poem on that olivetti.
Totally agree with you!
Do you know that a few students buy these kind of typewriters which allow them to think and type slower??
Yes, the Modern Love column of Sunday's NYTimes mentioned that.
V de B - were you typing ME a letter? You'll see today that I was thinking 'a toi....
Once again ... GMTA .. well yesterday anyway
You're talking to my mind and heart! I'm a great snailmailer, and I have penfriends all over the world!I like to write and to receive letters and postcards!
I just love the sound of a typewriter. Looks like the one I had in typing class.
I think it helps that the typewriter is Italian and therefore inherently inefficient. I used to write long letters to people. Now it's all email. At least I still don't tweet.
My mother made me take typing in High School...I refused to take more than one semester because I didn't want to be a secretary, and of course, in my mind, if I took typing, that was my destiny!!! Thank you mom for making me take typing, because I can now write this comment without looking at the keyboard!!! No hunt and peck for me!!! When I was in college...I regretted not taking more typing, until my future first mother-in-law took pity on me while I was using her fancy-dancy selectric typewriter and tossing out pages right and left because of mistakes...she was a court transcriber and could type about 120 words a minute with no mistakes!!! Eventually I gave up even trying to type them first and just asked her to type them for me!!! Thank you Lou...you got me through college!!!
ps...I love the juxtaposition of the cell phone next to the typewriter...technology sure has changed!!!
Amusing observation. The old Olivetti has a style all its own.
Love the mix of old typewriter and modern phone and the (I think) poetry being typed. Also adore the black and white and shadows.
