Before Photos

I have a soft spot for the mundane, the broken down, the empty and slightly sad in photographs. So it isn't really any surprise that I love these before pictures from a mid century remodel. They're a little Judy Fiskin , a little Bill Eggleston, a little Candida Hofer. They speak volumes about the history of the house. And though the finished house is basically a dream house (my dream house, even) the before pictures are so rich in texture and history that I have trouble looking away.

More images from Alaska are on their way, in a twist of the time/space continuum I'm actually going back up for a couple of days (leaving tonight) there right now, camping with my cousins.

The new exterior on that house looks absolutely amazing. I have to admit, though, I kind of wish they hadn't touched that fireplace!

I'm not even going to look at the after. It's beautiful just the way it is. I'll imagine instead how I would have transformed it.

This can't succeed in reality, that is what I think.
