A Photo a Week Challenge: Neglected

neglected1_nmp

My husband has some of the most fun job sites. One of our best clients (and a good friend of my husband) is building a small, forest get-away in the Uinta Mountains. He had some questions for his structural engineer, so of course we had to go for a visit. Along with taking pictures of the construction site, I had time to sit and take some more artistic shots, like this one of an old can of, wow, I’m not even sure what is in that can. The bristles of the brush were completely hardened, and you can no longer read the label.

For the curious, here are pictures of the cabin construction site and a view from the top of the mountain that is part of the property.

A Photo a Week Challenge: A Study in Light

light_nmp

I’ve mentioned before that my husband is a structural engineer. It means that we get to spend a good amount of time on construction job sites. Some of the funnest are custom homes. I took this picture for several reasons. One, to use on our company website. Two, because I love how the natural light works in the room. And three, so that my husband can make me a room like it when he builds our dream home. So, back to the light thing, I really do love how the natural light works in this room. It will be their formal dining room, and it is just infused with light. (As a side note, I also love the woodwork in the ceiling.)

A Photo a Week Challenge: Two Materials

two_materials_nmp

My husband is a structural engineer, so we visit construction sites frequently. It’s a lot of fun taking pictures of something that started out as an idea on paper and then becomes reality. This photo is the garage of a very large custom home. The combination of steel and wood provides a great visual contrast. Mixing and matching materials can give your images a lot of interest.

While traveling through Switzerland this summer, we were fascinated by how many construction cranes we saw sticking up from picturesque cityscapes.
