Future: Museum Photos

I imagined that I was a person from the future, taking photos in a museum about the history of this decade (2010-2020 The Shrinking Age). Here are 12 photos I might have taken of relics in cabinets.

Garden sheds/pods originally offered a private place to “potter about in the garden”, but became living spaces when homes were in short supply.  The ‘Green-space Uprising” brought about vast changes in architecture following this.

  1. This is excellent. I really enjoyed your post. You must have gone to a lot of trouble to find such excellent photos. I like the idea of a future museum.

  2. You have balanced the good with the bad. I have never seen the homeless deterrent spikes before. They remind me of those spikes they put out to stop pigeons roosting. Definitely falls under the bad category for me. The chef’s tools are good–food. Really thought provoking collection.

    • Thanks Frankie – I had been thinking about this for some-time – so when the challenge future came a long it was easy to put together – the photos would be boring on their own. Those spokes are growing popular here in the UK – quite horrid.
