these were taken in 2003, in a temporary apartment I stayed in for the summer, down on 2nd st. in santa monica. the desk was made from a door found in the alley, painted red with acrylics. the place was a few blocks from the beach, and the light in there was very soft, if only for a few hours a day. (the building next door, out that window, was probably three feet away.) i was just viewing these, to send to my sister in law, who is a professional organizer.
