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.
