The Wolf Can't Blow This One Down

The first little pig had something going when he decided to build his house out of straw...he just should have gone a little further with it. Been just a little more creative. I got to spend a couple hours in a real house made of straw this past weekend. It was possibly the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It was not extravagant. It was simple. Elegant. Full of windows (a natural light photographers dream come true) and open. I immediately fell in love and felt as if I should move in. I'm sure no one would notice me or all my clothes. And shoes. Or the two year old attached to my hip.

I wanted to photograph the whole house a million times over, but felt a little silly. This is in the house. It's a portion of the wall without the finishing over it. Amazing.

Oh... and this is the reason I was there. He graduated. Finally. (Just kidding A. ) Congrats!! He and his dad built the house together. Some pretty talented men, that's for sure. They are sure inspiring.
