I’m Back!

If you’re a regular to the Digital After Dark Blog (or anything else about me, for that matter), you probably wonder if I’ve sold my cameras. Other than keeping up with the Night Photography Events Calendar, I haven’t done much of anything related to photography since Thanksgiving.

Bathroom interior at twilight

Patricia Adams takes a bath in her brand new bathroom. Kevin Adams took the shot during twilight in order to get even lighting and a nice blue color looking through the windows. Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24mm lens, ISO 800, f/8, 0.8 sec.

Ever since I finished the addition to our mountain shack a couple years ago, Patricia, my dear sweet wife, has been taking her showers in the old bathroom while the new one sat unfinished. The old one being the one with the floor rotting out from under the toilet, a piece of plastic covering up the unpainted window, no room to turn around, and tile board falling off the walls surrounding an ancient tub.

Why that woman is still with me, I have no clue!

Anyway, I promised her that I would start work on the new bathroom at Thanksgiving and that she could take a bath in her new tub on Christmas Day. I’ve worked night and day on it and just finished it this past Sunday night. Actually, I didn’t break my promise, since the plumbing was all hooked up to the tub at Christmas. So she could have taken a bath in it if she wanted to, but she wanted to wait until it was completely finished. Something about stepping all over the tools and construction materials and breathing drywall dust while bathing didn’t appeal to her.

In case you’re wondering, yes, I am a carpenter and woodworker, in addition to being a photographer. In fact, I’ve been in construction longer than I have photography. That’s a long time, my friends! I contracted out most of the plumbing and electrical, but the rest was all me. Oh, I farmed out the drywall finishing, too. That’s one where you can really make a mess if you’re not a pro.

So the bathroom is finished and I’m trying to figure out how to use my camera again. Regular blog posts and other goodies are back on schedule. And for those of you who are wondering about registration for Western North Carolina Foto Fest, everything should be up and running by February 1.

And now, I believe I’ll go take a bath!

Did you like this post? Well, I sure would appreciate it if you told your friends. Thanks!
