I left the house this morning with an object to shoot in my pocket, even found a nice spot to capture it but as the day went on I remembered that it was the 30th anniversary of the Mac so I decided to change my plans and dig out an old Mac Classic instead.
The last time I shot one of these proved highly popular with you guys so I thought a sequel was in order. Many of you may remember this location from the year before last when I drug a christmas tree out there to shoot. As I was brain storming to think of a good place to shoot I couldn’t shake this image from my mind so I went followed my instinct and here we are.
I have a long history with Apple and the Mac because of my dad’s fascination with them back in the early days of personal computing. I remember playing word games on an old Apple II, then eventually kick starting my desire to design when KidPix and later an early version of Illustrator came into the picture. We have been with Apple through thick and thin, we even have one of Apples short lived QuickTake digital cameras in our collection and I remember being the first one in my family bold enough to instal the beta versions of the original OSX and its aqua craziness.
I secretly ordered the original iPod despite everyone thinking I was crazy at the time and later remember seeing the original iPhone rotating in a display case at Macworld back when it had first been released. Waiting in countless lines to get the latest OSX updates or new gadgets and proudly defending the bold moves of a company that fought its way to the forefront of personal computing technology.
While these days my knee-jerk purchases of new Apple toys have subsided to some extent I still can’t imagine using anything else from day to day to stay connected and creative. So I will leave these few simple photos as tribute to the humble beginnings of a company that has changed so many lives.
While I typically only post one image within this series I decided to also share some alternate takes as well which you can find below. Links for wallpapers at the bottom in order of their appearance here. Enjoy!
