The Not so Dead-end Alley

While traveling with my good friend Rich, we stumbled upon a few nooks and crannies… what we thought was going to be a dead-end, wasn’t… Take a quick look at his rendition as well.

I spent quite a bit of time with this image in Photoshop, onOne, Photomatix and Lighroom to get what I was seeing through my eyes and in my head while we were on location.  I believe this is a fair representation of both what I was seeing and what I wanted to see … if that makes sense…

More Work to Be Done!

Some more pictures to share of the home building process… some of the first floor coming up and then some more up until today.  Today’s heavy rains left no time for the builder to finish up the roof.  Tomorrow doesn’t look too promising either but the rest of the week looks like great weather to build!  Before the group shots, one singular shot of the interior for the photog friends that visit…

Processed with Lightroom, Photomatix, and a couple of the onOne suite of products.

Here’s what we got so far – several days in between the last post, the first floor coming up and the second floor w/ roof coming up…

And finally, our dining room with a great view — essentially the same as the front door…

The View from Our New Front Door

I believe the title to this post is pretty self-evident, but for those who need a little help…

Once our home is done (wait, what – it’s not done yet?!), this will be the view from the front door.  Granted, it won’t always look like this, but this time of year it will look like this.  I’ve always been strangely fascinated by the slight movement of the sunrise and sunset over the course of the year in relation to static objects on the ground.  So, this summer, I’ll post another at this angle/direction and relative time of the day and we’ll see where the sun is located against the silos.
