Sometimes you have to do a ‘different’ angle because of something else. The above, for example — see that brick wall out there? It surrounds a utility area where the pool filter sits. I didn’t find the pool filter terribly attractive — big black egg-shaped thing — so I setup my camera in such a way that it’s behind the door.
One of the homes I had to photograph today the agent couldn’t meet me but left a contractor box for me to get a key from. No problem. Got there, unloaded my gear, schlepped it all to the front door….
This is certainly not the first time I’ve gone to an empty home by myself, so I always yell out “Hello!” because, well, I’ve been surprised by a worker, the owner, etc. Yell out, hear nothing, push the door open the rest of the way — and am confronted by a tall guy about 10 feet away!
The sliding hall closet door was a mirror.
I may or may not have screamed like a little girl.
