Salt Lake City, Utah
An abstract macro photograph of a Ferrite Memory Core plane from an early IBM mainframe computer. This grid is made up of fine wire threaded through tiny magnetic ferrite rings (cores). Magnetic core memory, a type of random-access memory (RAM), was introduced in 1955 and succeeded in the 1970s by solid-state memory in integrated circuits.
The Museum of Modern Art has three in its permanent collection, but none on display.
Although it feels like spring in Salt Lake City today, here are a couple of images from our last snowfall.
Here is one of my favorite pictures from one of my favorite days of 2014. Taken in Chelsea, London, May 2014.
All best wishes for 2015!
A portrait of Theo, a Maine Coon kitten sitting quietly after having just enjoyed a romp in autumn foliage, some of which remains on his beautiful coat.
