Behind the Window OR This Old House
SmugMug Daily Link
I've been sitting on images of this old house that I took over two afternoons this past week. Just seemed like I couldn't quite get the image I wanted and/or I had something prettier to post. Yet, I'd still like to share these images and talk about this house. They are all hdr.
This is the house as posted in a prior daily from November 2010.
The kids used to talk about the spooky house when we'd drive by and make up stories about it.
The house as it sits by itself isn't what really attracts me to it. I think it's more the stories it would tell if it could and the curiosity about what's behind each window and door.
Yesterday I noted when I drove to/from the boys' school that the curtain now covers the window again (the glass is broken). However, with it blown back, it's very interesting. I like how the branch on the curtain ties back in to the branch of the real tree.
Not only is the bed still there, but as you can see in my daily picture, there's also a beautiful mirror.
This window with the strong tree branch reflections also really catches my curiosity. There's such a beautiful texture to the curtain fabric.
The tree in the front yard is beautiful although maybe not completely placed conveniently for photos.
What inspired me to stop for pictures again this week was 3 turkey vultures on the roofline. They didn't improve the composition like I'd hoped, but I enjoyed watching them for a few minutes.
I never got out of my car for any of these shots. I drove up the dirt drive, parked in front, and used the car window frame as a tripod. I didn't want to get into trouble yet couldn't resist taking a few more pics from the outside. No signs posted but no trespassing seems implied.
