a different lens

my photo – pantry window

Following up on Gramma’s house with some weekend shots of my own home. I’ve also included a few snapshots that my Aunt Jessie took.

It’s so interesting to see my space through someone else’s lens. In the juxtaposition I notice how idealized my own photos seem to be. Even if a picture is slightly eschew, it’s all still “pretty.” Jessie’s images, taken at night, are more raw, artistic.

for some reason the pantry at Salt Timber has been dubbed “the shop.” So this small painting, which Aunt Jessie and Stephanie bought for me in South Africa, is perfect for it.
