Stored Memories – The John Muir House Attic

Stored Memories - The John Muir House Attic

In the attic of the John Muir house, there is this cool, old baby carriage.   This shot was challenging since it was really dark.  As you can see there are some harsh shadows from the light bulbs off-frame.  Again, this is a 3 exposure HDR image, with the longest being 30 seconds.  In PP, I tried to create a very dusty, old feel that was the modern lighting attempted to steal from the scene.

    • It helps to have a gorgeous subject. 🙂 If I was shooting my house, it wouldn’t be quite as compelling. Thanks Tracy, I’m glad these are striking a chord. 🙂

    • It is a fun place. Unfortunately, I only had a half hour there. Thanks!

  4. I like this a lot, and I love these types of baby carriages.
    My mom used to work at a place where they made modern versions of these (way back in the 60’s) and she had made the one she used for me and my younger sister herself.

    • Wow, very cool. I think your the first person I’ve met (even indirectly like this) that has a carriage made by the person that used it. Thanks, Michaela.
