The history of objects is such a fascinating thing. It doesn't have to be a special history or a sentimental history; just a good old boring history that, to you, was nothing to write home about, but to others is a mystery they'll never unravel.

I was trying to think where I bought some of the vinyl I sold these days and I honestly can't remember. There must be collectors who recall where they found every object in their possession and I'm not one of them. This realisation made me a little unhappy and also a little bit gladder that I made the decision to part with the things I did. Somewhere out there may be someone who will always remember picking up Nirvana's 1991 press of Nevermind from Record Collector in Sheffield on XX day of XX month 2014.

And in this case I remember too. I special ordered it from a local record shop in Gyzi (back when local record shops where not a mystical and mythical thing that stocked pressed and sleeved magic) and I was a bit miffed because it was uphill and I couldn't be asked (especially as I had to go back for it). I played it to death, cherished it when the band was no more, brought it to the UK, moved around a few houses with it and finally sold it without a second thought because by now even that record shop owner who looked at me with amusement when he handed it over has listened to it at least 100 times. And he would never have guessed. And no one else will ever know.

Bigger, better etc :)

Annoyingly G+ doesn't pick up metadata, so apologies for what appear to be untagged and unnamed pictures.
