Vacuum Tube

This started out as a vacuum tube. I don't know what it is now.

I am old enough to remember vacuum tubes. We had televisions with them inside. They would glow. If you looked in the back of the TV it was like a wonderland of electrical glowing, tubes. Different sizes and shapes. Some with silver sides.

Once in a while the TV would stop working. I got to go with my dad to the hardware store where there was this funny console with holes that matched a certain, given vacuum tube. You would test your tube there. If it was faulty then you pulled a good tube out of the cabinet beneath the tester.

Once we didn't have TV for a while and I thought that would be okay. Then it was longer. Longer than okay. We discovered that the sound worked fine. So we would sit and listen to TV. And then we discovered that there were shadows and you could make out people on the TV and horses and houses... big things. I realized sitting in the dark so we could see those shadows that we were addicted to TV.

I took some real photographs today and I hope to get more in the camera tomorrow, so maybe in the next few days maybe we can get away from these strange abstract things. 

What do you think? Would that be good?

Okay, so what brand of camera has an x-ray setting?
Or is it Superman’s x-ray vision?
