Jon Crispin's Notebook

Tiny Daffodils

Posted in Flowers, Nature, Newspapers, Willard Suitcases, Writers by joncrispin on 27/04/2014

Good morning everyone.  The New York Times doesn’t come until after 9.00 on Sundays so I wander around waiting for it to show up.  These daffs are just outside the back door so after my third time checking for the paper, I realized I should take a picture and post it here. /  I am at the beginning of a week where I plan to spend maximum time in my studio cleaning, organizing, and generally getting rid of stuff I haven’t used in years.  I started yesterday and it feels great.  Back to shooting suitcases tomorrow and am very excited to be going with Ilan Stavans, as he has an interest in a particular case.  Wishing you all a great week, and early delivery of your Sunday paper.

So weird.  When I looked at the front page of the dining section of the Times today a familiar word jumped out at me.  From the Dhaka Daily Star to the New York Times.

I used to do quite a bit of work for the New York Times.  I started shooting for them when Carlo Mastricolo was one of the assignment editors and I was living in Ithaca.  When I moved to the City, I continued doing freelance work for them and when I ended up in Massachusetts, they still called on me from time to time.  I think the last job I shot for them was James Taylor at his house in the Berkshires.

Yesterday I got an email from Penelope Riseborough at World Education saying that Joel Lamstein was being featured in today’s business section.  The Times used a picture of Joel I took some years ago that I have always liked.  He is an amazing guy and as Cris worked for him for almost 20 years, we have gotten to know him pretty well. / It was nice to see my name in the paper again after all these years.  Here is a link to the article.
