I took this photo because I like where Apple has gone since they first started selling the iPod. My first iPod was in cube roughly 8 inches (20 cm) per side. These days, the box is almost as small as it can be and still hold a cord, the plug, ear buds, and the phone itself.
As for its black and white treatment, I took this photo on a cheap hotel table, with the color of the table top adding nothing to the image. Here I was able to amp the contrast, and take away from the table top, which was distracting in full color.
