I despise built in obsolescence. The following photos are of dissolved oxygen electrodes used in the measurement of water quality. The only thing that is faulty with this electrode and all of them, is the tiny crack that is evident in the 2nd photograph. The company knows but continues to use inferior plastic in their moldings. I’ve added this for Ailsa’s Tiny; Not very Travel.
Change, change, change; that’s what expected of us all. It has always been the case but the turnover is a little faster these days. If this bugs you, like it bugs me, go outside on a clear night and look at the Cosmos. If you live in a dirty city get out of it for a night. This will remind you, most conclusively, that nothing much has changed. I photograph it every now and then. I have been for 35 years. I am a beginner at it but maybe I’ll nail it in the end. In this photograph I have inadvertantly captured the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite gallaxy of the Milky Way. I was rapt when I spotted this, because I did not expect it. There is a Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) as well. Next time I will capture both.See more examples of muse here
