I've started working on my 2013 calendar, and this image is a candidate for October. I took the photo a couple of years ago in Maine. I'm drawn to these simple white houses -- I have photographed a number of them. The problem is to make them as compelling to the viewer as they are to me. I like the simple geometry of the 3 windows and the door, and the nicely quartered window on the 2nd story, echoing the upper panes of the lower windows. The tree on the right looks like it's extending itself to protect the little house from a strangers' gaze. I used Lightroom to soften the image and make it look more dreamlike.
