My 250th Post! – Time For A Little House In The Country?

Yes, indeedy, this is my 250th post! And I’ve just come across an amazing set of photographs which I feel are worthy of the honour of inclusion on such an occasion. I frequently shoot photographs with a low horizon but not as low as this!

The Huffpost article, which is called ”Behind A Little House’: Photo Series Pays Homage To A Tiny Home And Its Larger Than Life Surroundings’, said “Photographers have a knack for finding beauty in mundane structures — it’s their job. But there’s something about Manuel Cosentino‘s simple but ever so romantic series, “Behind a Little House,” that’s sent our hearts fluttering.

“The subject of the project is a tiny, nondescript house positioned ever so modestly on an unnamed hill. Cosentino photographed the small residence for close to two years, capturing the wild and dramatic weather patterns that took place just beyond the home’s roof.

“The resulting images — stark tableaus that showcase the barely-there house contrasted against impossible to miss landscapes — are nothing short of breathtaking… The series [is] on view now at New York’s Klompching Gallery.”

Keep going down when you get to the sixth shot. It is white sky, not a blank page!







As I said, amazing! Hope you like them too!

    Kudos to you John for this milestone – I have been so tardy in my visits and comments to you and for many others for quite some while – life has intervened! These pics are fabulous…
