meet chris

chris is a friend of mine. we got to know each other through music a few years back and he is hands down the best guitar player i've ever met. he plays with 2 other guys in a neo-bluegrass band here in b'ham and they are very good. he also stays busy with session work and lessons.

i asked chris & tim (who i'll post later) to come over to the studio to help me get some shots for the website. i wanted to give them shots they would want to use for their own promotion. they brought their instruments over and we had a good time.

the thrill of my life

i mentioned in an earlier blog an incredible home in greensboro al that i was dying to photograph. by god's grace it worked out. i had to take the backup camera so they weren't as clear as i wanted but i still think they turned out alright.

this home was built in the 1830's. it is one of the last if not the last of its era to be restored in the state (these picture could be the last ones before it is). believe it or not a descendant of the homes original owner actually lived in the house up until only 20yrs ago or so. imagine living in this home as you see it. in some ways it would be the most magnificent thing imaginable and in others it would be terrifying. i kept waiting on a ghost to show up in my shots, but no such luck.

i have the utmost respect for this house, its architecture and how it was built. it is amazing how well intact it still is. it has held up better over 200 years than some houses around me have in 20yrs. click here for a slideshow. hope you enjoy as much as i do.

click here to see a photo of the house from the 1930's. pictures looked so much better back then.
