Nice. Every writer needs a small little domain to commit his work to.
Exactly. A bit of a writing sanctuary to call one's own.
Brilliant photos! Those stars are amazing!
Thanks! I love stars. I love just looking up at the night sky and thinking about all those other little worlds that are out there.
Very good shots and great place to type (:That NEX5 does pretty well at night.
It isn't too bad. But I can usually get a far better range out of my other Sony - an Alpha 550, or my other-other Sony, and Alpha 100.
First rate shots transpire from second rate burgers. And I second you on that, Brodiea really are pretty awful. Good to see it's not long I have a typewriter going somewhere comfortable
AH! Yes. That's right next to the guest bed you slept in here over easter. Feel free to pop by and visit when you're next in my neck of the woods!
Love the vintage table with orange chairs plus the Triumph Perfekt. What a great mod ensemble.
I thought so. Mind you, I'm likely to alternate what typewriter is exactly on that table. But it is pretty close to the perfect typing table.
Hard to beat those Triumphs, they have to be just one of the best portables ever made.
The more I use it, the more I love it. It is a beautiful machine. If I replace the platen, I reckon it will be pretty damn close to 'perfekt'.
Great post, Scott. I sense a feeling of peace and acceptance of change. And thankfully the change has not dimmed your ability to appreciate the finer things from the past. And i agree with Ton - great ensemble. I love the addition of that wonderful lamp from Ikea - you are tempting me to make another visit to the strange and wonderful land of Ikea!
Oh, it is great to have that. Writing in my opinion is something of a form of meditation. Avoid Ikea! I only went there for one thing, and came out with 10 other things. Dammit!
Teeritz is nuts like that! The man knows his stuff.And you: new place and already got a new typer! I have one of those triumph perfekts - I love it tho im a rather slow typist on it. Need more practice.
Teeritz sure does, hey! I was mighty impressed. I know. I actually had the typewriter on the way down there weeks before I moved in. It was great to settle in to a new typing machine! The trick is with these Perfekts, Michael, is your typing position. The rake on the keyboard matches with your elbows being above the keyboard - as how old typing tables and desks placed it. As such on modern tables it is actually harder to type on than a lot of other machines. Which in a way is a bit silly for a portable - as they were supposed to be able to be used almost anywhere.
