Dividing the time between actually doing the work of cleaning the place up and documenting it for this blog feels like a job.  That’s no fun.  After the last post’s weight loss, there has been plenty of room to work and lot’s has been going on.  The main room on the second floor has been completely cleared out, really showing off the square footage!

Peeling paint textures and the sort

If you’re just visiting this blog for the first time or you’re not from my small town where everyone knows everybody and their dog’s name, you may not be able to tell from my mediocre iPhone photos throughout the blog, that I’m actually a professional photographer.  I’m also not a professional journalist if you can tell from that huge run on sentence.

I was really dying to get some texture into this blog and 49 Columbia is loaded with textures, toxic lead paint and all!  My previous background was just a free stock pic that had nothing to do with the property, but alas, I spent about 30 minutes walking around the interior of the house documenting the textures along the way with my 100mm macro lens on my Canon 5DmkII (I have a couple Mark III’s but didn’t want to bring them into the depths of hell)

So if you’ve stopped by here a few times in the last couple days, you might have noticed the changing background.  Thanks to my brother-in-law, Shawn, for setting up this theme and doing all the nit-picky stuff I think of.  Just like having a custom code to randomize the 40+ photos I took for the background.

Below is a gallery of the 42 high resolution versions for all the artists and creatives out there.
