Taking Stock

I have been spending much of my time over the last two weeks shooting for my stock archive.  The light this time of year is absolutely fantastic, so I want to take every change I get to shoot.  Keeping busy shooting is nice, but it’s also nice to get calls from clients who want to see what I’ve recently been up to.  I send images to several stock houses and one art consultant who works with a variety of hotels, designers, and architects.  The consultant recently called and asked if I had any architecture images that were design oriented.  Good thing I’m always shooting.  They wanted single horizontal images or groups of three verticals.  Finished size is to be at least 6 ft wide.  Here are some examples of what I presented to them.

This Old House

During a photo shoot this past weekend in Long Island, I had the opportunity to get away from the set and take some photographs in and around the house where we were located (photos from the main shoot will come later this week) .  The house was built in the 1930’s (I believe) and had been recently vacated, with some of the furniture and private belongings left behind.   It was strange to see what had been left.  It was as though the owners wanted to keep a “presence” in the house.  I wouldn’t say I believe in ghosts, but I certainly didn’t want to be in the house when it was dark.  It was a very eerie place.  Here are some of the photos:

The Garage - I assume the previous owner used this chair, but who wrote on the wall is unknown.
