sunday stills: High Tech, Low tech.

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: High Tech/Low Tech
Posted in Sunday Stills Challenge of the Week, the next challenge with tags Sunday Stills on November 14, 2010 by Ed

This will be a true challenge so pay attention to the parameters. The picture must contain one old school item next to a new high tech item, For instance a dial phone next to a cell phone. So lets see how ya’ll think and good luck…:-)

Hi Ed,
One of my computers broke down, something is wrong with this one, I can't down load my photos, so I am using an old photo with a different twist.

This is a box of eggs and cakes which some Chinese give to friends and relatives when their baby is one month old. We call it baby's full moon.

The round sponge cake is High Tech, made by modern machines, and is relatively new to the Chinese as it is a Western Cake.

The two red oval cakes called turtle cakes are hand made. How old tech can that be? They believe that turtles have long life and they bring longevity. How old an idea is this?

The red eggs are timeless, eggs must be here since the beginning of time, or was it? Chicken and eggs, which came first.

Have a great weekend to everyone. We in New Zealand are very sad, by now, you would have hurt the mining explosion here. 29 miners are trapped, this is their second night. We need high tech machines like they used to rescue the Chilleans.

Sorry to hear about the miners- we don't listen to the news here either; I will pray for them. You did an interesting post; I'd like to point out one more thing- low tech cardboard container, and high tech plastic container in the background!
