Skyline drive and an old house with an interesting story…
I went on an adventure to find this house I believe is called “the wash day house”. During a pop-up event in December, customers often asked if I had a photo of the “wash day house”.  I was completely clueless. Intrigued, I had to learn more. From what I understand, this house has a clothesline and depending on the type of clothing and colors on the line, people would know the kind of moonshine in the works .

I went on a hunt and finally located this special house. Although the chimney was going strong, it seems as though there was no moonshine available. Unfortunately there wasnt a place to pull over where I could safely photograph it, so I had to do it on the fly while driving by.

I am really happy with how it turned out. Is love to see it with clothes on the line.

I took skyline drive on my way home and enjoyed a cool foggy view as well. It was truly a fun way to spend a dreary afternoon.

Wash Day House

I have to admit that I have slacked quite a bit over the last few weeks, so the next few posts are going to involve a lot of catching up…

The lunar eclipse…

Well, unfortunately, it was too cloudy here to catch it. But I didn’t let the early rise go to waste. I caught an amazing sunrise here in the Shenandoah Valley…

I did manage to get a pic of the moon AFTER the eclipse 🙂

February Flashback (part 1)

Every once in a while it can be fun to take a step out of the routine to play around with creative projects.

Today I created a pop art inspired self-portrait/composite by combining two images to make one final image.

This first image is what I used for the background… finger prints and all. And the “Get Ill Soon” card? Well here’s a hint… it’s both an indirect musical reference and a play on the mocked thoughts shown in the second image. There is a shopping list in the background that is, unfortunately, too blurry to read. However, that list has a few extra clues for guessing the musical reference. The shopping list contains the following items: Chivas, Hot Sauce, Stir-Fry & Jell-O. Any guesses?

I’m a big Lichtenstein fan, but I can’t draw to save my life. This is the best that I could do. Don’t judge me… there is a reason I stick to photography.

Here is the finished composite image.
