Dead Ends

There are numerous car repair shops around in Rotterdam North. It is debatable how long they will keep working since it is unlikely for all of them to survive the social consequences of globalization and the ongoing gentrification of the neighbourhood. My aim was to visit as many as I can and take pictures to preserve this form of them.
The photos were taken with a Sony Mavica camera which uses floppy disk as the main recording medium. Although it was one of the pioneers of the digital era, the Mavica line has been discontinued since Sony started to produce cameras using Memory Sticks for storage. I use this format to call attention to the fact that the car repair shops and Mavica cameras might share the same end.
