Thoughts From December I Hadn't Posted, But Intended To
Typed in Lynchburg, VA on a Hermes 3000, unrelated to the picture below.
Inspired by classic photos of writers at their typewriters and during a bout of sudden nerdiness I made a self portrait with my 1981 IBM Selectric II. Let be noted for the sake of those concerned (mom for example) that I do not smoke cigarettes but chose a prop to enforce writer stereotypes and make the photo more akin to the types of photos I desired to emulate. Let it be noted for the sake of personal boldness to the potential disappointment of some (mom for example) that is a real jar of liquor on my desk.
