004/366 Put the needle on the record

This was far harder to photograph than it should have been what with clearing away all the knitting on top of the stereo unit to find the old record player under an inch of dust. Was surprised when the record player worked straight away…but then couldn’t find any vinyl!

Half an hour later – JJ Burnel’s Un Jour Parfait in hand we’re ready to start.

You would not believe the amount of bright white dust particles and really tiny hairs that were all over this. In normal light the record looked clean. In the blaze of a flashlight and under the scrutiny of a 105mm macro lens it all popped out to almost ruin the picture (such as it is!).

Photoshop to the rescue and it doesn’t look too bad.
