What do you do in your new house when the furniture isn’t moved in yet ?
You roam aimlessly from room to room and try to catch the volumes and light on camera
You peek out of all windows
Or you head outside and start exploring the “backyard”
Which in this case means going into mysterious and cool woods
Yesterday we got up early and hit the road to go claim official ownership of our new home. We left our current house under a pouring rain, but as we got nearer the new one, clouds broke up and soon we were under a gorgeous and sunny sky
That’s the place
I had brought the NEX6 camera and its 18-55 zoom, and played with it around the house, trying to capture the looks and atmosphere of the place, before the movers bring the furniture on Tuesday
Without a wide angle lens, real estate is really tough
The other end of the living room (same as previous pic, different perspective)
Marla and I also had a grand time playing in the yard, and making a lot of pics. The NEX6 behaved in a pretty hectic way all day, I think it’s sick, and told Marla she could have it once I gather the funds to get a new camera system
She was pretty happy with that !
The house is a photog’s dream, as every single room has two light entries in the way of opposite side openings (door, windows…). It’s literally bahted in light !
Marla getting a feel of the place, in an attempt to pick her future bedroom
Waving to her dad down in the yard
The “pool room” (because who needs a dining room, really ?)
A very tired little photographer
On the way back we stopped to check on Joli, who was happily grazing in a field with his buddies, half asleep. That’s certainly the end of the holidays for him, I’ll be back in the saddle next week 😉
