I store all my files in a folder called "office" that sits in documents. This name is pre-dates GTD, and even my movement to the Mac OS. In any event, that name is not relevant.

Key aspects of my system?
* Files are always sorted in reverse date, so newest entries are near the top.
* Folders and files are navigated using the keyboard, either in pathfinder or with quicksilver.
* As an academic, my three main areas for projects are "meetings, posters, talks, symposia, courses" i.e. teaching events, "papers, projects and people" or research type events and "committees"
Promotional photos? In my case they are stored in the folder "vita" along with my CV, biosketch and other items.
Other photos are stored in folders under "Pictures" by trip or subject matter.
This is a system that has evolved over 20 years, and the main thing is not the specific details, so much as it is a system where *I* know where everything goes and there is only one place where things are located. If I find myself regularly looking in multiple places something I change the system so that doesn't happen.
