Thank you, Bob.  This product of a late Saturday afternoon outing falls under the category of "therapy."  You've shot for that reason, I know, and so I know that you know what I am talking about.

Right now I am feeling about like that old house--but I feel better than before I took it.

Great shot!

Here is the porch area, showing both doors as well as the very late afternoon light.  This has been downsized a bit from the 100% crop so as to meet the inline file size requirement.

Lannie... I love the lovely glow from the "golden hour" in which you were shooting! I can't resist anything with that glow!!! I read your post to Bob and I know exactly what you mean about therapy. If I'm overwhelmed I can take my camera in hand, head out on foot to see what unfolds and I can get lost in the photography and I feel better in no time at all. This sure was a great product of your therapy! deb

Thanks, Tom and Deb.  I had been planning this shot for months, and then on this day there were the red light and the shadows I needed--and the light was from the sun at the angle I needed it to be as it moves south during the approach of winter. 

I would also like to get it when the western sky is bright yellow from lots of high cirrus near sunset.  The shadows would disappear, but the entire house would glow with a diffuse golden light.

I pass this old house every day as I go to work, and I have had time to watch the light play off of it many afternoons.

Lannie:  Great detail and lighting, the afternoon sun gives a nice rich tone.  Tom

Very good shot, Lannie!  The lighting is very pleasing and you have nicely framed the house between the trees. 

Landrum Kelly

Thanks, Kim.  It was really the only angle that I had on the house that was at all workable.

Lannie, I've seen homes like this so many times and always I wonder about the life they've had. I love the golden sunlight. I'm curious about the double doors, but I guess they open up to two different parts of the house. I sense there are some stories which need to be told. I totally get the part about "therapy". And I thought I was the only one who works like that...

Here is a 100% crop.

Thanks, Liz.  I think that the house was once a single-family dwelling that was later converted into two rental units.

Yes, photography sure can be therapeutic, can't it?   The world is mad, but at least we can control most of the world that we create in our photographs.

Hi Lannie,

Superb, Superb , Superb.

Now for my review.................Technically Superb !

Best Regards,  Mike

Landrum Kelly

Thanks, Mike.  I kept my eye on this place for months, waiting for the right light.  I still think that the perfect light has eluded me, although this was very good light.
