Twelve rolls of film waiting to be developed. Turns out I don’t even have enough developer, and the darkroom is in a disarray.

Spring has come to Wrocław. Coming back from the long trip, I’m starting anew too – especially that my newly renovated work room is almost empty right now. I like the space. Again, why do we keep cluttering our space with stuff?

This really calls for some more spring cleaning.

Air and light and time and space, revisited

You probably remember a post from ancient times (actually: just over a month ago). Today officially marks the end of the renovation works.

My new studio has barely any furniture. I did my best to keep the amount of stuff there to an absolute minimum – and I intend to keep it this way. Some things are still missing – like armchairs – but the essence is there. The walls are pure white, there’s a big desk just for the PC workstation, an extremely comfortable office chair, the shelves eagerly wait to be filled with books… Yet, when I sat at the desk today to do my daily share of work, it didn’t feel any different.

It was a really simple enlightenment: work is work. Writing a new blog post, editing photos, cranking out code – it takes passion and discipline, not a new chair. The new space may make it easier for me to work consistently without burning out or getting tired – but the work still has to be done, and no amount of office supplies and electronic devices will make it any easier.
