Photo 101 Day One: Home & Getting Oriented

Photo 101 Day One: Home & Getting Oriented

“Home is elusive. When we think about this word, we might picture different physical locations. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind.”

For the first post of Photography 101, which is all about ‘Home’ and what the word means to you, I have chosen this picture.

For me, right now, this picture signifies home. A mess. We are going through the slightly arduous yet rewarding process of doing up our first home. The house has been lived in for almost a century. Unfortunately for us, as a result of this, there are many many layers of wallpaper and it is pretty fascinating to peel each colour, each part of someone else’s life, someone else’s home. This particular section of wall has three layers (as do most parts of the house) and this section has this beautiful flower power retro style wallpaper we initially mistook for hand painted amazingness. Eventually we will replace the layers and start the cycle all over again.

I am planning to blog pictures and videos of the house renovations to help make the process even more rewarding and enlightening.

Many Layers

    1. I hope so, I keep saying it but I am going to post some before pictures. Then you will see the task we face! Haha oh gosh it’s madness. Complete madness, but I love it really!

    1. Thank you Marquessa! I am excited to write the post. The house has already changed a lot and I am falling in love with its charms bit by bit. Visualizing the end result is keeping me going because the dust and wet peeled wallpaper certainly aren’t. Watch this space!
