Photo of the day: What do you mean you don’t keep your typewriter on the porch?

in Photo of the Day

I found a new toy at a garage sale this weekend: a gorgeous vintage Olympia SG-1 manual typewriter, circa 1950. It’s a beast of a typewriter, I’m sure close to 30 lbs if not more. Beloved laughed at me for picking it up (“Don’t you already have one of these?”) but even he couldn’t argue with the $5 price tag.

Doesn't everybody keep their typewriter on the porch?

I just put it on the porch until I have the chance to give it a proper cleaning, but I gotta say, I kind of like it there. A typewriter makes for perfectly good porch decorations, don’t you think? And much as I love it, with its extended 15″ carriage, I’m not sure where else I can keep it – but I simply had to have it. šŸ˜‰

I have been swearing for years that I would learn off-camera flash. I have taken at least two workshops, read many books and countless blog posts. I’ve bought umbrellas, gels, softboxes, and modifiers,...
  4. Photo of the day: Typebars When I asked Beloved to digitally sketch me a camera for my new photo website design, the original idea was a vintage typewriter for the blog and a camera for the photography site. And maybe, just maybe, a tattoo of each on my left and right wrists. We ran out...
  5. Photos of the day: Chilly portraits on the porch October was a rough month for outdoor portrait photographers. At least one day of every weekend in October was rainy and cold, and I had to reschedule more sessions this year than ever before due to poor weather conditions.
