You forgot the spammity spam spam spam part.

And y'all know what that means!  More fauxlomolicious fun!

First, the carriage house behind my mom's house.  It's since had a
new roof and other repairs done to it, but before that, it was very
sorry looking.  In two versions:

Next, black walnut leaves in the rain:

And last, more fun with not-dead-yet-but-coulda-fooled-me-cat (not
so fauxlomolicious, but entertaining nonetheless):

Why did I expect a carriage house to look grander than that?  Must be the
name.

Ummm... that's most likely not black walnut.  Black walnut leaves turn
yellow in the fall.

How could that possibly be comfortable?

Mine is looking reddish/orangish/yellow at the moment, but it's usually
more yellow.  I have to go out and look closer - it's obscured by other
trees.  The stems are definitely not red though.  I think.  Now I have
to go marching out there in the rain!

Well, it was only just meant for a couple of horses and a
buggy--strictly middle class, in town, personal use.  Nothing grand
about it, and they are a dime a dozen in my mom's neighborhood.
Hers, obviously, needs a lot of work.  The roof ended up caving in
completely and was replaced, but the hideous asphalt siding still
has *got* to go.

On the other hand, most of the rest of the carriage houses in her
area have been totally redone.  Siding and door excepted, hers has
been left alone.  It's still got a dirt floor, stalls, and hay loft,
and even the tack room is intact.

I wonder what they are, then?  I bet they're that hideously stinky
"tree of heaven."  I always get them mixed up with black walnut when
they're young.  I'll have to check when I get home, to see if the
leaves stink.

Quote:

Beats me!  She sleeps like that all the time.  She's kind of senile,
though, so maybe she just doesn't realize it's uncomfortable?

Can we blame Jane Austen?  I don't think I've ever pictured non-grand
carriage houses.

Sounds cool.  I haven't seen a real life carriage house before.  You should
take pictures of the inside.

I didn't know that it was stinky until you mentioned it.  When I looked it
up, the description said something about it smelling like rancid peanut
butter.

The descriptions don't say that they have significant fall color, and the
leaf you have is just brilliant.  I wonder what else is pinnately compound
and has red fall color - Sumac or Ash maybe?

Ha!  Yes, we can blame Jane Austen.

Lighting is impossible, unfortunately.  I think there is electricity
out there (or at least there was, when I was still living at home),
but it's still way too dark to take photos.

Oh yes.  I don't know about rancid peanut butter, but tree of heaven
is foul smelling.  Don't ever touch it if you can help it, because
the stink does not wear off.

Flame-leaf sumac (Rhus lanceolata)!

This is the raw image, by the way.  The only thing I did was resize
it.  Since the red spectrum tends to be correct (greens can get a
bit wonky), this is pretty faithful representation of the plant.

When you say "fauxlomolicious," what exactly does that mean? You are
imitating lomoliciousness with Photoshop? These weren't taken with the
"lomo camera" the true name of which I cannot remember?

They are very interesting pictures, whatever you're doing.

Do you have a hood for your lens? I find myself unable to take picture in
the rain for fear of ruining the lens mechanism.

Exactly.  I've got a Holga (the Holga and Diana are sort of in the
same category as the Lomo), but these were taken with a plain old
Kodak EasyShare then Photoshopped to mimic lomoliciousness.  I've
mentioned before that I'm terrible about getting film developed.  It
sometimes takes me years to remember.  I require instant
gratification, damnit!  I ought to get a Holgaroid (Polaroid back
with Holga lens), which would solve the instant gratification problem.

And, speaking of...  I cleaned out the studio closet last weekend,
and found a Polaroid camera I have *no* recollection of acquiring.
And a box of film, too!  I also found a ***maid tub of Barbies.
I see a Polaroid + Barbie experiment in the immediate future.

Lomo Kompakt Automat (Lomo LC-A).

Thanks!

No hood.  It was only drizzling, and I tried to keep the camera
pointed down.  I still got the odd rain drops on the lens, though.
When that happens, I clean it off and make sure to leave the lens
cap off overnight.

I'm always more interested in garages/barns/outbuildings than I am in the
structure that's meant to be lived in.  I know I would board up the house
and go live in the carriage house.

I think she's wonderful.

Sneaker has been feeling great lately.  He shredded a whole role of toilet
paper this morning.  And he typed that line of d's at the beginning of this
post.

I am a sucker for old junk and decrepit buildings.  When I was
little (like 4-5) my parents used to pack us up and go driving
around in the country, looking at abandoned houses.  We'd take a
picnic lunch and spend the day just poking around.  I always like to
  go inside and hunt for left behind junk, like pieces of silverware
or marbles.

Pan has, as well.  For some reason, the fall change has made her
frisky.  It's nice.  She's been chasing "our" chipmunk up and down
the patio windows.
