These photos are special not because I’m starring in them. They’re great because they were taken at a house that my dad redesigned and revamped. He’s worked for himself ever since he got laid off from a carpenters’ union many years ago. He does laborious work and that’s about all I knew. He comes home covered in paint and sometimes he has “battle wounds”. I always wondered what his work is really like. I went to Sayre Dr. when my parents first bought it. It was pretty rundown. A couple months later, I came again with Derek to take photos. Didn’t expect much – but was so stunned by the craftsmanship and the creativity that went into rebuilding this place. My dad really amazes me. And even if he doesn’t have much of a choice (career-wise), at least he enjoys what he does.
