Home For Thanksgiving

These are actually shots I took of my parents place in October 2005 when I came home from film school for Thanksgiving.  What I like most about them is that despite this house not changing all that much over the years, it's rare that we ever think to take pictures of places that are familiar to us like this.  The yard, the stacked wood and deck chairs, the swinging bench on the veranda, the basketball hoop over the garage, the lighthouse bird feeder that my dad built, etc. all paint a picture of home for me.

As this place continues to change without me noticing, I'm sure I'll come to appreciate shots like this even more.  Of course, shots of the family are just as important, but there's something equally special about locations.  This will always be home.
