About a year ago I disposed of a defunct laptop. Having read articles about the potential¬† for old data files that you thought had been wiped from the hard drive prior to disposal to be ‘retrieved’; and knowing that the laptop contained Health Service data there was only one solution. Pulverize the hard drive. That required stripping down the laptop piece by piece.
A few days ago I was on one of my regular missions to reduce the volume of rubbish that continues to accumulate despite all my best intentions and came across two circuit boards that for some reason I had retained.
I took one look at one of those boards and reached for the camera. I propped the board on a desk near a window took a few frames and half an hour later, after a bit of experimentation, the image you see above stared me in the eye. I liked what I saw.
Do you see a pair of eyes, with irises and pupils? I did. It was a fluke of the lighting that one of them turned out darker than the other. You just never know where that next image is going to come from.
