Sitting in the same corner for the last eighteen years. Maybe I should move my desk and get a fresh perspective.


The studio as it looked at 7:00 am this morning. A wreck. Once I get rid of the rest of the cameras and lenses I'll start working to get rid of the filing cabinets and the rolling tool cases. Then the studio should look all "Zen."

Better hang on to those filing cabinets and tool cases.

Now it seems a messy Zen look.
Very attractive

Hi, Looking for a Olympus OMD-EM5II or a EM1. What site are you listing you cameras on. Cheer GregJK

All the Nikon gear gone then? What about the Olympus stuff? I need to learn to do this. I am a hoarder by nature, never throw anything out because you just never know. I don't want to be a hoarder though. Fresh starts and perspectives are wonderful, in life not just photography.

Sounds like consolidating and offloading prior to moving on. Going somewhere?

"Going somewhere?" Geographically? Naw. Austin is too much fun to leave. Existentially? Hmmmm. I think I'm just bored of thinking in terms of generalist photographer and ready to be much, much pickier about the work I do. As you know my interest in motion projects has grown and I don't want to keep all the tools on hand to do any job in the universe (photographically) anymore. I've been surrounded by so much stuff for so long. It's nice just to distill down to what you actually want to use.

I once asked a 75 year old semi-retired judge, who was still doing many demanding settlement mediations and Alaska Bush flying (!) how he managed to stay so active and effective at his age.

His comment was that every professional needs to become more selective about the work taken on after age 60 and take only the cases that seem interesting and fun. After I turned 60, I found that was some of the best advice that I ever received. That, and maintaining physical workouts.

Yeah. I recognize the feeling. It's called "PMCS" (Post Midlife Crisis Syndrome) and is a typical male affliction, that sets in at an age around three score give and take a decennium.

But is has the benefit, that you - suddenly - get much more floor and shelve space everywhere ;-)

Go for it.

I am following Kirk's example. I am selling a fuji x-t with a 21, 35, and 56 mm. All in great condition.

I'd move that stuff out of the way and shoot portraits against that window and pretty red door.
