From Where I Sit…My Home Office

Last August I wrote a blog post about my space — the place I spend most of my time working on photos, writing blogs, and preparing workshop materials.  Today I wrote another post about it and how this photo is featured in a competition that I never figured to be in.

Can you believe that a photographer is among interior decorators?  I like to read Blayne Beacham’s blog, This Photographer’s Life.”   Blayne is an architectural photographer in Atlanta working with Beacham & Company Realtors. Her blog always has awesome photos of great spaces.  It is an inspiration to those of us who like to play at decorating. The link above to the blog takes you to the post asking for votes.  Seven photos are featured — taken by others — showcasing their special spaces in their homes.  Number 7 is me!  It is the photo above.

So I am asking the readers and friends at Fayette Woman to mosey over there and vote (preferably for me).  The voting ends on June 29 — so time is short.  There are so great spaces there and how fun for little amateur me to have mine there!

I love this photo — the room is a used room — not staged.  Sadie took my spot as soon as I got up.  I am sitting in my husband’s leather recliner as I take the shot.  The paintings on the wall are mine.  The laptop is mine.  Yes, this is where I spend my time.  You can say this is my darkroom.  I work on photos here – but then I do have to head off to the basement when I need to print something.

As I sit here and write this post, Sadie has returned from her trip to the kitchen (where my son was cooking eggs for breakfast).  She jumped up behind me and is wedged in between me and the back of the couch.  The cat is on the pad next to the laptop, just as in the photo.  There are a couple cameras on the ottoman and my coffee is cold!.

Have a great weekend and go vote!
