As this window was quite high, if shot with anything other than a view camera with movements, the perspective would have been very distorted by pointing the camera up. In using the view camera, my partner and I pointed up, but leveled both the front and rear standards of the camera, which created perspective control and made for a realistic looking print without distortion. Of course, with digital cameras and a current version of Photoshop, one can click on "filter" and then "lens correction", and make similar adjustments.
I will be finishing cutting the firewood this morning and begin stacking the pile that remained after the woodshed was filled to the ceiling with six rows (three on each side of the Central Wood Boiler). Hoping to be done Sunday and then turn my attention to the huge mess of wood chips and sawdust all over my drive where the pile once was. A nice feeling of accomplishment to be able to handle this task alone and know that my heat is paid for the next winter season.
“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Family Happiness
