I was out shooting again for most of the day today, but first I wanted to say--
I saw Nicholas Cage this morning! He was filming a scene right outside my window this morning. He looked stressed, even though I smiled at him-- and construction workers have been telling me all day since then how happy my smile makes them, so I don't know what his problem is. ;)
Guess you can't please everyone.
We didn't see a whole ton of progress in some places, but I have to admit I'm extremely impressed with Brad Pitt's Make it Right Project. The houses are quality construction, not to mention energy efficient and the best part is each design is unique. No cookie-cutter shotguns like out in the Musician's Village. Some of the houses even had rooftop gardens. Awesome. Almost makes you want to move to the Nint' Ward, huh?
The picture above is from one of my favorites. See the bridge in the background? That's how close these houses are to the Industrial Canal. I think that's one of the houses designed to float if there's major flooding in that area again. Pretty cool. Well, I better get back to work. Lots of photos to process!
“All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ~George Orwell
I'm a YA writer who delves into urban fantasy, paranormal and romance, and who loves reading good books almost as much as writing them.
When not writing—or working—I enjoy daydreaming, drinking tea, and walking in cemeteries. I used to spend the rest of my time checking my inbox for manuscript requests, but am now proudly represented by Rosemary Stimola, of Stimola Literary Studio.
