Theme Thursday - Noise

Noise. How do you photograph noise? The obvious thing is to photograph something that *makes* noise, or perhaps some graphical representation of noise - eg the output of a wav file in sound recorder. The latter not being nearly so interesting as the former, I went with the former.

But what to photograph?

Lots of things popped into my head, but the thing I chose is one of the servers at work. These things have more fans in them than a hairdresser. As a consequence, a rack full of these things makes such a noise you can hear it most of the way down the corridor, even with the door closed. Even one by itself in a quiet office is enough to make you relish the sound of silence when it is turned off. Try going into the server room during a power outage - now *that* is a strange experience to the initiated.
