Some things live outside of space and time and become a part of our overall awareness of where we have been as a culture. It still amuses me that I use digital cameras and the internet to share items that existed long before there was a computer in every home. As a side note, it also occurred to me that I've enjoyed photographing such items moreso than collecting them as of late... This, of course, happens when you've just about reached your ceiling of what you want to bring home and display for yourself and others to enjoy. Items can be bought, sold and given away, but pictures remain.
