Photographer's Note

Well I had just gotten my first digital camera days before and was snapping pictures with unrestrained enthusiasm and no understanding of how to set the size, or that I even could set it (or anything else for that matter), because I hadn't read the manual yet... Kind of like being in love before your brain catches up..

So here, unfortunately in 640 x 480, is one of my first shots, of a house which is full of history both real and personal. Shot on a cool March day, before the humid season, when the sky really was that blue and the pond that clear.

The house is a typical style New Jersey farmhouse circa mid-1800's (although the white paint was recently replaced by cedar siding on all but the dormers); the small fieldstone building at the pond's edge is a springhouse, where more perishable food items were kept cold in the days before electrical refrigeration.

No post-processing other than sharpening.
