2019 365 Photographs: Photo 21

This is a picture of something people in IT these days probably don’t see any more.

This is how Microsoft used to distribute its software library to enterprise customers. Each month you would receive a huge box of CDs/DVDs containing all the software covered by the enterprise licensing agreement.

The CDs/DVDs were colour coded covering the server operating system, development tools, desktop operating system, services (e.g., Exchange, SQL Server), etc.

When it was decided by the company I worked for to chuck all these disks in the bin—because now the software is downloaded over the Internet as needed—I grabbed as many as I could because I was sure I would think of some way to photograph them.

This is just one of my tries. I intend to try other angles and ideas as I come up with them.
