Hillbilly Shack

One great thing about visiting my girlfriend out at the manor is that there almost always is something to aim the camera at. In May and June I sure did have some fun when the neighbors there got busy in the paddock. These images have been posted previously at the old blog at Nouw, but you too deserve to get some amusement from the mini series called The Hillbilly Shack, so here they are with the oringinal captions and all, of course in the correct order.

Mobile home redneck style…
It appears the hillbillies have decided to become resident, if this isn’t a shotgun style house I don’t know what is…

The term “shotgun” is a reference to the idea that if all the doors are opened, a shotgun blast fired into the house from the front doorway will fly cleanly to the other end and out at the back…
Looks like I’ll be able to get an entire series out of the hillbilly shack. Today they’re waterproofing the roof…
Another installment in the continuing story of the hillbilly shack, hinges are being mounted for a possible door. The shack is now slightly less unhinged…
The construction work at the hillbilly shack is now at last resuming. This part of the job do look kind of less safe.
You want me to put that little wormlike thingie where? It’s a hillbilly yuck moment…

Proposition

There is no end to the variation in tasks and assignments as a photographer. Most of the afternoon today has been devoted to choosing and editing images for the city budget proposition for next year from the local chapter of an opposition party. Of course the little model got to be included.

Playing in the sand

It’s cold’ it’s damp and it’s pure hell, the weather is truly wreaking havoc with my joints so no new photos taken today. Instead I dive into the archive and dig up a summer memory. In June I took a day at the beach with the family and of course the cameras came along documenting everything and everyone. One really nice shot I got of an older woman playing with her grandchild in the sand.
