Jesus House Revisited

Some of you may have seen my door shot titled “I Found Jesus”  and/or the shot of the other side of this wonderful old house which I posted as “Doggie Door” shortly after coming aboard here.  I went back the other day to  shoot it again, planning to use my tripod this time, but in a typical blonde moment forgot to put the tripod in the car. Oh well.  I was just happy to find the door still untouched and the house still standing.  The tree by the doggie door has gotten huge now but not much else has changed.

  1. Thank you – but now I am curious what you might have done with the image in terms of “digital machinations”. I did try to keep it subtle in this one. I have another version from a slightly different angle where I had to play with the shadows so as to see things inside that window. But as a general rule I do try to avoid overprocessing a shot like this one, although then I may miss out on maximum impact sometimes. Or if I do process it numerous ways, I’m like Sam trying to figure out which one is the one to post! Which explains why I have over 1800 images on Flickr now … I just upload them all there.

    • I would have been sorely tempted to see what a bleach filter would do with that metal and rust. I think it would have been nice, but not as … organic, I guess is the word, as your take is. I’m certain I couldn’t have done as well as you have.

  2. Dawn I just love this door. It almost looks like fringe at the bottom. And no I didn’t peek in the window! Abandoned houses give me the creeps, as drawn to them as I am. You just never know what or who may be living in there. I may post another shot of this house where you can see what appears to be hangers with clothes inside that window. Afraid to get too close to investigate though!
