Technology really has transformed the concept of the remote office, hasn’t it? We haven’t seemed to be able to make the leap yet into complete, primarily because of our dependence on high-speed internet and our huge desktop workstation setup, but the guy in this image seems to have the right idea.
Continuing in our free stock photography series, this photo bundle is all about boating and life at the marina. While Evan and I dream of someday having a sailboat, a trip down to the marina when visiting his hometown provides us with a little snapshot of the seafaring culture, and that’s enough to go on for now. The thought of days spent reading books, toes dipped into pristine water with the catamaran bobbing somewhere in the Caribbean doesn’t sound like a half bad retirement (that is, of course, sans the insane depreciation, continual upkeep and maintenance, cabin fever that’s bound to happen sooner or later, isolation and creepy pirates). 😉
Photography was a passion of mine long before getting into the design world. When we started the company, our first purchase was a Nikon D300, and we took it everywhere, snapping images of the shoreline in the Redwoods, cows munching in a field, pheasant hunts on the prairie in middle America with my family. We even started a street style photography blog while living in Portland – one of our first forays into the blogging world. I found it easy to snap the images, not so easy to approach random strangers and ask them to hold still and SMILE! while I clicked away. So instead, we moved onto nature and still life photography.
