Workin' on my night moves...

The other night I stepped out onto the deck to feel some cooler night air and listen to the owls and frogs.  I decided to go get my camera and take a few shots of the house at night. 
Looking straight back in from the deck (those are rugs in front of the sliding glass doors - not some weird coyote pelt)

a view from the birdfeeder tree area - that rake leaning at the side of the house is for raking excess bird seed and hulls and those trash cans are full of various bird seeds and scratch feed for the ducks
a peak inside from the deck - I did not bother to set up a tripod for any fancy or clear shots.

I love your house. The encircling shape makes it seem so welcoming. And that wee glimpse of the inside is so warm and comfortable looking.

Beautiful home -- I've noticed the lovely pic on the sidebar before too -- and this is why you live in Podunk TX isn't it! What a lovely location. All worth it.

Now you had me convinced that you and housework do not go well together, so naturally I had this vision. Your home looks very nice, clean and tidy. You were just messin' with me weren't ya? Yes, I could see sitting out there on the deck in the evenings...as long as there's no skeeters. We look forward to more revealing photos.

Janie2 said...

Well, I LOVE the wall art you have on your home. I hardly think you ever sit down. I would be on that porch ceratin times a day. This is a wonderful thing for you to share with us. Appreciated, and now you make me think I should share more of my space. Hmmmm...

Felicity said...

Wonderful.
I love seeing our house lit up at night too - there's a special quality that the lights exude that just isn't there in the daytime.

I love the uniqueness of your home. Did you guys build it yourselves?

wayside wanderer said...

I love peeking into windows at night because of that warm orange glow of light is sooooooo inviting.

Kerry said...

It's fun to see your place at night. It's like a beautiful glowing round house, with coyote pelts. (OK, you had that coming...who among us would have spotted those rugs and thought they were coyote pelts?)

Clint said...

Cool night shots, and very clear especially not using a tripod. I know I would plant myself on that deck and never want to go in.

Apparently YOU do not need a tripod to get excellent shots.
