Nothing On

I came across this old broken down TV in the middle of the Mojave Desert. I first spotted it because the edges of the case formed an unfamiliar straight line off in the distance. As I got closer, I realized what I had found. It really stuck me as odd to find such an old style piece of electronics out in the middle of nowhere.

It reminded me of a time when television programming went off the air at night, the only image they would broadcast was a test pattern and tone.

We only had four channels back then, and I still remember being entertained by what was on.

Today we have the 24 hour news cycle, tons of programs, and yet, there still seems to be nothing on.
