How do people do what they do, and where is that sweet spot when they're doing it.
My office is chaos; I'll admit that right off the bat. On my desk, there's hand lotion, an RSI wristband, two dog collars, and dental floss. Incidentally, there's a computer, and a stack of loose notes.
Not a view I brag about.
So let's look at the landscape of other writers, photographers, bloggers. This is a three part series.
The first is titled: You've Got To Be Shitting Me. The second is called That's More Like It, and the third -- Now You're Talking
Kevin McCollister our favorite LA photographer. Get the book.
Karen Klein, journalist and columnist for Bloomberg and BusinessWeek.
Virginia Jones, photographer and instructor, known most particularly for her images of Birmingham, Alabama, and Paris (yeah, that Paris).
And Wayne. Wayne is a talented photographer and our token Canadian. I have another Canadian, but she's off buying a house so I didn't bother her. But how many of you think Wayne swept the mess from the desk and hid it in the closet?
Ok, maybe these folks are sincere. Maybe their desks do really look, at all times, like they're poised for a photo op at the Ibsen Museum in Bergen. So then I wonder, how did I ever get to be friends with these people -- what could we possibly have in common? Ice cream? Or maybe we like the same cheese.
I honestly have no idea how they get anything done in all that neatness.
Part 2, tomorrow.
