home on the ridge

We saw this site the other day and wondered what it would be like to hike into to photograph it. My initial results.

miscellaneous from squirrel

last two photos of house on Flagg-Ranch-Road

old rock house in chester

I found this site through Darren who found it through Alex. Once again Alex is leading the way. I made these photos later in the evening. You can see the ambient outside light in the windows is not so blown out. However, this made the ambient inside light a bit contrasty. I want to go back at about noon and shoot the interiors again. It will be interesting to compare the images.

Alex pointed out the location of this house. I enjoyed photographing the interior. Thanks, Alex

white house in squirrel again

I visited this site again after looking at Darren's TS images. I was going try and achieve the same affect with stitching. I guess if you want to play with PS for hours you might come close. Any way here are some inferior results.

abandoned homes in Boise/Meridian

The economic crash has created a new subject to explore. Hundreds of new homes are vacant in cities that were booming under the inflated economy. Here, millions of dollars in real estate sits empty in just one of many new subdivisions that investors lost everything on the promise of big returns from developers. It is interesting to note that the developers lost little or nothing. I learned a new acronym while working in Boise...OPM...other peoples' money. That is the mantra of big time developers. They make big promises and use other peoples' money to pay themselves well and avoid excessive risk.

The one with alfalfa fields is in my backyard. The other more dramatic photo was taken in Eagle.
