Centers of Entertainment

June 27th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Entertainment centers were very popular before televisions got bigger and thinner.  Let’s take a look at some recent examples.  They were perfect for your small TV and VCR.

This one’s not very deep, so it was perfect when the first flat-screen TVs came out (the small ones).  It can’t handle the typical 32″ TV nowadays.

Talk about old school.  That’s a reel-to-reel player.

It was popular in the Phoenix area to have these built-in media niches, especially ones that were two feet deep to accommodate those monstrous projection TVs.  Now they are functionally obsolete and collect dust.

Taking real estate photos of bathrooms can be very tricky.

Mirrors are hard to shoot around.

Mirrors are a reflection of your photography skills.

Sometimes two photographers are needed to get the right shot.
