  1. Love the 1st three, sense of lighting and delivery of character inherent in the resident and the inanimate.

  2. Thanks, T. There’s a lot of Ernie in all three of the images. The other two are less about him and more about the shed (which was his).

    My favorite is the work bench and the white drawers. Or the hat.

    I wish I’d known Ernie. From what I do know of him, he was an interesting man. His family is rather wonderful. And his photography? Fantastic! It’s been a real joy to help sort through his prints and negatives. There’s something really special there. Even in family photos. The man was a real artist.

  3. My favorite is the top image, no question. Can’t tell you why, since they’re all wonderful… Just is. :biggrin:

  4. It’s because you know that hat belonged to someone special. You’re good at sensing these things.

  5. Well, maybe… But it’s more than the hat. The picture tells a broader story. The hat is the title; the contents of the shed the text.

  8. Thank you, Kaknockers! And thank you, everyone.

    Like I said in a previous comment, through my friendship with Patty, I’ve come to know her dad a bit. He was a special man and I wish I’d been able to know him while he was alive. But he left a wonderful family and some beautiful photographs that — wow! — you just have to see to believe. In many ways, you can still feel him around their property. He’s very much a part of everything. Shooting a few photographs in his shed, it was like having a cup of coffee with him.

  9. That last shot could have been the fence our neighbors had up along the property line between them and us. It’s the spitting image of that old fence, even the color.

  10. That’s actually the inside of the shed door. I loved the way the layers of wood were peeling. And the color. Awesome color.
