The Cabin

Posted by on February 9, 2013 in Blog, Buildings, Landscapes | 20 comments

Located in South Western New York state, is a beautiful place that I had helped originally build. My father’s (our family) cabin. It has since gone through some major renovations and upgrades that I was unable to get time off of work to help with. My Dad and step Mother and their friends have made some major improvements on a place that is just awesome to “get away” to. I figured with the blizzard hitting many folks, I would share a warm sunny summer day shot to hopefully cheer up anyone who’s sick of winter weather!


I shot this photo last year on a weekend escape prior to having my surgery. I was stressing pretty bad and needed to just get away for a few days. This was my escape. Watching the birds, listening to the frogs at night, campfires off the front porch, quiet. Oh, and of course, a bit of Photography thrown in!




I will be doing another post on this terrific place later in the year showcasing some of the terrific work both inside and out! Since this photo was taken there have been some major changes to the exterior at the end of last summer.


I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for visiting!

  9. Looks like such a serene location Rich. The wind chill today in CT is in the single digits so this image is so inviting.

  10. Now this is my kind of setting. I would so love to have my morning coffee or sip on my evening beer to that wonderful view. I bet the frogs sing like mad!

  11. Wow this looks like a great place to escape from the stress of everyday life. How cool you helped build it.

  12. They filed past my table; the Night noticed perhaps my fixed gaze and throwing her body forward out of the wriggling chain shot out at me a slender tongue like a pink dart. I was not prepared for this, not even to the extent of an appreciative “_Trs jolie,_” before she wriggled and hopped away. But having been thus distinguished I could do no less than follow her with my eyes to the door where the chain of hands being broken all the masks were trying to get out at once. Two gentlemen coming in out of the street stood arrested in the crush. The Night (it must have been her idiosyncrasy) put her tongue out at them, too. The taller of the two (he was in evening clothes under a light wide-open overcoat) with great presence of mind chucked her under the chin, giving me the view at the same time of a flash of white teeth in his dark, lean face. The other man was very different; fair, with smooth, ruddy cheeks and burly shoulders. He was wearing a grey suit, obviously bought ready-made, for it seemed too tight for his powerful frame.
