    Default Desk/Writing Area Photos

    So, I've been looking for this thread for a while. Ever since seeing SBRE's desk video I thought it would be fun to see others. There are loads of these types of shots online with huge computer rigs or standing desk but I think this community could bring something to the table. Please post yours and try to show how you keep your pens & ink if possible so it will be as on topic as possible. So, without further ado, here is mine at my office:

    @jeph I agree heath's desk is too neat and organized and you know what they say about a neat desk. I believe your's is an organized catastrophe. Just my opinion, mine is a combination of the two and will one day remember to take a photo.

    Mine is not so neat, but since it is in my office it can't be too horrible.

    It looks like you have a new TWSBI notebook as well but I can't place the leather one. Is it a journal or a book?

    The leather one on top of the magazine is a custom made cover for the Midori system. Not Midori, but fits their large inserts (it has more elastics in the back, doesn't have the knot in the middle of the back cover, etc.

    Thanks. Here are two more views. One a closer look at what's on the desk. The other of the other corner of the space. When I'm not writing, I'm reading.

    This was a thread last year I believe. But it's good to start a new one.
    I'm discovering vintage pens. Oh no!

    Ok, this is basically a bump but also showing my desk just after unloading my bag onto my desk for the day before sorting it all out.

    The one on the left is mine, the one on the right is a new one I am setting up for a client. One of my companies does IT for small businesses. That being said, I have multiple computers in my offices but they are in different areas. I prefer the minimalism of a single laptop to the side on my main desk.

    Sadly my desk is a t.v. tray at home or a lap desk. My small desk is taken up completely with my computer so no sitting there to write letters.

    Looks like you have a nice setup. I love the recliner, wish we had one at our place.
