More Photos of Houses

Moving on with the theme of houses that have personality or character.  Houses become an extension of the owner’s personality, quirky, eccentric, cute, luxurious, run-down, spooky, boring, cold, etc.  It’s always sad to see them neglected.  When I see neglected homes I think of the Tom Waits song, “House Where Nobody Lives,” it’s very sad.  There’s a lot of that going around these days.  A rundown house can signify someone who was down on their luck or it can signify someone who doesn’t care; a waste of materials and resources.  Our tear-down culture needs to learn to save and preserve the old structures.  Here’s a quirky, humorous one I saw in Newfoundland.

Photographing houses at night became a theme for me.  The houses either glow with warmth and life or seem scary, empty, haunted.

      Thanks, Tracy, the colors are caused by the different color temperatures of the street lights. I just started my blog so there’s not much there yet. I checked out your blog, very nice photos. I go to San Francisco fairly often because I have two family members living there. Do you run your photos through a special software or just Photoshop? They have an interesting softness combined with sharp detail.
