I’ve had a couple of those lightbulb-on moments of late:
1. In preparing for my tiny house book, I started looking over my photo archives. Wow! I’ve got a lot of good stuff. I’d forgotten. All the creative building going on out there.
2. I was planning to go to the Frankfurt book fair in October, then take 10 days to Istanbul and the coast of Turkey. Yesterday — flash — I need to stay here and get this book done. A two-week trip actually knocks me off schedule by about a month, since I can’t help shooting pictures and reporting wherever I go, and then must unload it upon return. Plus take care of all the brilliant ideas I’ve made note of while traveling (most of which don’t get carried out).
3. I’m starting to get more feedback on this blog, some of it critical. We like your blog Lloyd, but:
-a) Stay out of politics. You’re wrong in calling it Arizona’s hate law.
-b) Growing pot indoors hydroponically is fine.
-c) Stop knocking Dwell magazine
-d) Shame on you for printing color books in China
Criticism is welcome, no kiddin..Keeps me on my toes, but much as I’d like to respond, I need to focus on forward movement.
Today we started out socked in with fog from the sea. Started to clear around 10, now the sky is blue, with floating patches of low wispy fog, perfect temperature, Gregory Isaacs singing “Willow Tree” as I write this, a lovely song.
I just happened to run across photos I shot in the Green Mountains of Vermont in 2005, when I visited architects Dave Sellers and John Connell, the Yestermorrow school of building, and environs. I’ll post a bunch of these. Dave and his pals are in a vortex of creative architecture.
