May 18, 2005

One of my neighbors of whose child I took a picture playing basketball, visited my PBase galleries. She noticed some of my photographs, saw one of her house and the brick street and asked if I would print an 8x10 of each. The other day she came over and brought the photographs she had beautifully framed. Wow, they looked like real photographs like some real photographer took them. Well, I thought some of my other neighbors might want a picture so I plan on taking more of the neighborhood and giving them to my neighbors, if they care to take them. I have already taken quite a few. Maybe that could be one thing I could do for my new neighbors. I really don't feel like mowing their lawns.

There are wonderful houses in your street. Worth to be photographed.

Very well done, keeping the house in the right exposure and still yielding the green in the leaves! Good!

hhaha funny comment. Nice photo too.

LOL your mowing lawn comment was funny. Maybe, if I take pictures of the installation where I am stationed at, I could take it to my captain and ask if I can hand him a picture, instead of mowing their lawns when we all do spring cleaning!!! Great idea, nicely done and you are right, this has a professional flair to it.

Nice shot of this porch. Sure does beats mowing the lawn.

Great idea, and you're right -- it beats mowing any day. Makes for a lovely gift -- what a great neighbor you are!

Wonderful porch! Great idea!

Very nice idea, Don. I gave my neighbor a photo of her cat and she was appreciative. And, it surely beats mowing.

Nice idea, and you have a way of making the homes look inviting. Good work!
Robin Reid19-May-2005 02:16
LOL ... much better than lawn mowing ... a great idea and you will be much appreciated.
I'm afraid all the homes in my area looks so much alike and are so recent in construction that there is not much differentiation.
But it sounds like a great way for YOU to get to know your neighbors better.
