A weekend & a new roof (Photo heavy)

    My parent's house needed a new roof and their church decided to pitch in the labor to get it done. I was able to contribute a couple afternoons myself (it's a huge roof) and brought my A7 along to document the effort. It's just too bad that I had to leave before it was all completed. I focused more on the people than the work anyway.

    Most was shot with the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2, but I also used the Voigtlander 12mm f/5.6, Canon FD 85mm f/1.2L and Canon FD 135mm f/2.

    Some very unusual angles and shots for an "arty" thin DoF treatment, I like it!

    Having done all the home construction jobs, roofing is NOT my favorite.

    Great that you got the aid needed as this is a big job.

    Thanks. It was a unique opportunity

    That's what the guy working who works as a home insurance adjuster said to...but that didn't seem to stop him either. Shhhh... ;)

    Here are a few more:
