Photographing Fall Colors and Rocket Stove Flames – Part 1 October 09 2013
The weather and setting were both stunning for our fall EcoZoom rocket stove photo shootWe hopped back in the car and drove slowly past more properties on an old single lane road, probably creeping out all the residents in the neighborhood. We found locations and settings that looked like they could work but nothing compared to our first find. It was the perfect location for our EcoZoom rocket stove photo shoot. We drove back to the original residence we found and parked the car at the start of the driveway. The walk up the driveway to the house was long and made approaching the house a little ominous. Once there, we knocked a few times but no one answered. We snooped around the property a bit and looked for any signs of life but it appeared we had missed the owner of the house. We walked back to the car, found a pen and piece of paper and wrote a lengthy note describing exactly what our intentions were with our photo shoot, asking that the owner of the house call us back to talk about if it was a possibility. As we drove away we weren’t certain we would hear back from the owner of the house and driving back out didn’t sound like fun given the time it took. We were a little dejected but tried to remain hopeful. As we neared our offices our cell phone rang… “Hello?” “Hello, I’m returning your call about the note you left at our house this afternoon. It would be fine if you want to stop by and take photos sometime. When do you think you will come by?” "How about tomorrow afternoon?" "That works fine, I'll be here. If I don't answer the door it's because I'm out back picking up walnuts."
