How Can You Pass Up This…

Posted by foreualways on August 16, 2011

In my previous post I included a few links as I am always bookmarking sites and articles that I find are interesting. I know who doesn’t! I know. Rolling on the floor laughing

So here is some more interesting links…

image_thumb[3]This is the main page http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/index.html scroll down and you will see a link on your lower right side that say,” Now, enter the Radio Shack Catalog Archive”, here –> http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/catalog_directory.html

So this first website take me back because I use to spend a lot of time at their store and had look forward to their catalogs.

Yes, I ordered a lot of stuff from them a lot when I was younger and I did all kinds of projects.

I just thought that they were the coolest store and had all the coolest gadgets / toys. Who hasn’t gotten something from Radio Shack at one time or another? I was into the electronic project kits, such as this one here….

Another thing I think is kind of interesting, especially in today age of high tech gadgets. Is looking up the year you were born (they had from 1939 to 2005, with the exception of the years 1942 – 1944 (see explanation here http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/1942-44_catalog.html) and are missing the following catalog’s 1946 – 1948) and what was available during that year! It think it kind of interesting to see how technology has changed over the years!

One is http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/11/16/beautiful-examples-of-tilt-shift-photography/ and the other is http://tiltshiftable.com/. They both have some very interesting photos of tilt shift as well as videos of the effect too!

Here a few photo’s from both websites so you can see now whether you would like to go there….

(Note that the above image is from the SmashingMagazine.com link above. The image below is from tiltshiftable.com right here on WP. Click the pictures will take you to their sites.)

imageThis next and last link for this post has to do with photography as well but in a very different, interesting and imaginative way!  http://dearphotograph.com/

They take a photograph from say 20 years ago and hold it up to that same background today and reshoot the picture! Here a few photo’s of what they do. Clicking on the pictures will take you too their site. Also the site is tumblr.com, but it public so you don’t need to create a account to view it!

Well I hope you find them at least interesting!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
