My writing station

I apologize for the lighting in these pictures. Too late for any natural light from the windows...

The controls of the radio. There are a few small spaces to the side of this, where I keep letters and my notebooks of story ideas. I could not get a picture of the speaker on the underside, but I will say that it is a bit damaged. This radio does not work in the least, but really I do not listen to the radio anyway.

And no, that clock does not display the proper time. I found a dozen of these in the dumpster of a store we had nearly completed building, and snagged one. It ran for a few hours, but died. Hey, it's...1:44 somewhere!

A nearly famous typewriter

This is one of the drafts. One of the papers in the case has the poem in its entirety, I believe, but it is in storage in the closet of the typewriter room at the moment.

I am going to have to cover up that sticker on the side that says 107DB. Otherwise, I will be forced to wear earplugs, as the threshold is 85DB. Ugh...

The whole ball of wax

Felt weird taking pictures of a camera...

Included accessories. From left to right: Well, I am not sure what this first thingy is...then, 100mm lens, 35mm lens, power viewfinder(?), and two Argus C2's, which I think are some sort of prismatic lens. The lens on the camera is a 50mm.

'The whole ball of wax', as the seller colloquially put it.

These people do not believe in price tags...except for things that are black, I suppose, and that is just because their sharpie will not show up. I cannot tell you how many prices we have had to scrub off of pottery from this place.

My productive Saturday in

I have been trying to post this since last night, but the image hosting site I use was down until...right now, apparently.

Now I just have to fix it...

I love those typebars. Sorry for picture quality going down. By the time I got in from my parents, it was dark out. I think I am going to retake this last picture in natural sunlight at some point, just because I think it would look awesome.
