A little stock-style photographic experimentation:
This shot started with some techno-junk I had kicking around. An ancient ATA hard drive (get one just like it off eBay for about $5), and the motherboard of a defunct PC for an appropriately tech-flavored background. Throw in some flash bounced off the ceiling, and voila!
Next stop for the drive — platter removal (should make a nice wall-mount clock face!).
