the pole remembers what it used to be

I want to think that utility pole, planted behind the tree, spends its time remembering its own leafy glory days.

…and it begins

It’s only been fourteen years since we bought this land out in the country and started designing a house. The house went through a lot of designs before we settled on one. And twice before now we got all the way to getting prices. And three years ago we nearly ditched the whole idea. But anyway, there’s no turning back now.

The contractor says it’ll take three months, but just to keep what sanity I currently posess, I’m preparing myself for this to take seven or eight months. But don’t worry – I’ll be sure and keep you all posted on the progress.

Available Light

Afternoon sun, on dead flowers, a leafless trees, and a window missing glass and screen.

We came for the view

Yes, it was the view that drew us here. And that BBQ grill was just an added bonus. (Also, how about what’s left of the window screen, flapping in the breeze. It’s flapping like that because there’s not any glass in the window. Can you believe how fancy all this stuff is?)

Gradual Destruction

I’ve been trying for a long time to get THE shot of the interior of this hut, and I’m not necessarily saying this is the one I’ve been trying for, but I am pretty sure it’s better than this or this or this or this.
