Part of my job may required me to return Sarah Jessica Parker’s purse to her on Oscar night, or stamp the hand of Sean Penn on his way into the Governors Ball. The other part requires me to take pictures with really, really cool stuff that we acquire for the museum:
While this may look like an ordinary wide angle lens, it just happens to be the camera lens used in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Yes, I am posing with HAL. Well, actually it’s the camera they used to capture HAL’s point-of-view. Still, pretty groovy, huh?
Sure, it’s exciting to be around the A-listers come Oscar season, but I find moments like these much more exhilarating.
