I spent a good long while absorbed in the blog Work.Place last night, which documents the working environments of Portland creative types. As one who is not patient enough to ever be a true creative type, I love getting a peek into the setting in which artists and artisas do their thing, where I imagine them abosrbed for hours in their craft… something I’m far too ADD to ever do. The photographer and blogger is Carlie Armstrong, and she takes the photos on a twin lens reflex camera, resulting in a quality (occasionally wonderfully grainy) that I love that seems to add even more mystique to the settings she documents.

I’ve also never been to Portland and am loving the impression of the place that this blog is giving me… now want to go visit even more!

    Awesome! There’s another sort of workspace blog, specifically focused on desks. I find it fascinating to learn how and where different people like to work and create… same idea as this, basically.
