This is the barn we took photos at a couple weeks ago for these shots. I just loved the peeling paint, and the green tinge to some of the wood.
I often pass by this abandoned house and the barn on my way to and from work. I walk home a few different routes, but I always pass this house when I walk home from getting groceries. I did so on Hallowe'en day, and the boarded up front door, beneath the "NO TRESPASSING" sign, the plywood covering the door had been ripped open a bit. Like a 2' square hole. Creepy.
I walked past yesterday after work, and the door had been boarded up again. Still, I don't know how close to this barn I want to get. But yet, it really makes such a beautiful backdrop... I'll just have to keep an ear out for groaning and shuffle and general zombie activity. The apocalypse WOULD start here. During the war of 1812 festivities (THE THREE YEARS OF FESTIVITIES don't get me started) zombies with muskets, that's all I'm sayin'.
Often times when Ephraim is taking photos of me, I'll have him stand in and I'll futz with my camera settings till I'm happy. I also like to just take pictures of him while we're standing around and talking. It's very annoying of me, I know, but he does make a good model. I don't remember why he posed like this, but it's funnier not to know.
I promised that he does get me back on occasion, and his iPhone is proof of this. I don't have his iPhone, but I do have this photo from Quebec. For your pleasure, the face of revenge. My automatic reaction to a camera is fear. Personal growth, people. Funny story, I once did an on tape audition to be a Much Music VJ. Why? I wasn't doing anything else that afternoon. No call back. I wonder why.
Anyhow, back to Quebec. I was, in fact, reading a menu and remarking on how you could get a lobster burger (yeah.), and then BAM, camera in my face. And that, is funnier to know.
Ephraim said I looked like a spy on the run. Um... no. Not seeing it. But fair is fair.
And now I'm thoroughly reminded how gloomy it has been, and how it gets dark out before I leave work now, and how I can't wait to have light to take photos again. Looks like I'm going to be having very snap happy weekends!
