    Smile Photos for mid-life crisis

    The beauty of an axel coupling. Is 'mid-life-crisis' a man only thing?



    I have a feeling that there are not going to be too many additions to this thread - unless I am not alone in my mid-life crisis.

    Hello joxville, I like it. I've another piece of rust somewhere that drew my eye to the photo.



    I'm trying to find the most boring "only a man would take that photo" type photo in my collection. I have thought of a goody, but scary. ;-)

    It seemed like a good idea at the time. ;-)

    I suspect that there comes a time in everyones life when you really appreciate that something has had a harder time than you. Never mind that its an inanimate object!!

    That's quite an exciting find there Deemac - a 1963, 34kv (kilo volt) GEC, Mersh and Brindly ceramic cable holder. There are not many of these around. Don't let anyone know where this post is as the caps are collectors items.

    Smile Boy stuff (not boring)

    I've always loved this photo that I took in about 1978 at the Rutherford Appleton laboratory.


    Not brilliant quality, but exciting. It's bigger than it looks.
