House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Shadow Dancing...

You might remember that I'm a bit of a nut about lighting
I once asked my friend "When do you get good lighting in your house?" She gave a polite answer but I saw the look in her eyes. The "Were you dropped on your head as a child?" look. 
When I busted into said friends house to play with her round dining table and her purdy china on a sunny afternoon, I got my answer. 
As I was shooting pictures of her tablescape, the light suddenly changed. Voila! There it was.  
She pretended to not be alarmed as I chased shadows around her home, trying desperately to capture the moment on film. 
This is why I am so grateful for my friends. They know that I am a whackadoodle and they love me anyway. 
Here are a few of the shots from my shadow dance party.






The stained glass made the light even more beautiful.






I saw a movie many years ago, "In The Gloaming" that was a beautiful movie, with a beautiful house, and stunning lighting. It was nirvana for a house stalker with a side of light obsession.

  3. Ummmm...I just started crying watching that movie preview so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be watching the whole thing anytime soon! Thanks a lot! ;-)But I did think the house looked beautiful so maybe when I work up the emotional fortitude to handle it. LOL! You did some lovely shadow dancing and your friends house is gorgeous. Now I need to go back and look at the other posts about it!

    1. Brace yourself...it's a tearjerker, especially if you are a mother!
      I had to watch it a second time so that I could adequately stalk the house!
