This is an idea I had a few days ago as I went through all my old hard drives trying to salvage the broken ones (alas, all of them were dead). This one is a very old 4 gig drive.
So, this is what happens when a hard drive dies. It gets out of it's slot and hangs it's self
Or so I like to think
This is a panoramic shot made up of 42 images, so there's a few spots where the focus is off, but I don't think you can really tell on this smaller image.
Let me know what you think
Lots of Photoshop here. I tried a few different things to put more focus on the drive, but in the end I decided to darken and desaturate the computer parts a bit.
