i am always inside

I have the sort of job where I'm stuck inside from the morning until after night has fallen. It's not your typical 9 to 5 workplace. I spend my days glued to my desk, on the phone, going through paperwork and doing other miscellaneous scheduling tasks. My general routine is: in the morning, I walk from my house to my car, drive to work, walk from my the parking lot to the office - and vice versa at the end of the day. It's certainly not an environment which yields a wide variety in one's photographic work. "Here's a picture of the mug filled with pens on my desk" - "Oh, and here's a picture of my boss... at his desk!"

And weekends are not much better. I feel that I have a mild case, or am in the early stages of agoraphobia. I just hardly ever leave the house other than to go to work. This is something that I'm trying to change. A few days ago, with a little help from Daylight Savings Time, I was able to shoot on over to the park near my house to take some shots. And tonight, I'm gonna be hanging around in the subway here in Los Angeles to shoot off a few more. At least that's my plan right now. It could change. I very well may find an excuse to ditch that plan and to instead go home and watch My Life As a Dog on DVD. We shall see.
