Floats...And Home

Nikon D800, Nikon 24-70 F2.8 @ F9.0, ISO 400. This is frame number 227 of my new camera. I'm just starting to dial it in now as I got it about two weeks ago (had it on order since 2/7 when pre-orders were allowed). I've been so busy I haven't had time. This shot is of a fence post in Maine which, if my offer is accepted, will be my new summer home. The home is called “Misty Harbor” appropriately so as it's 1 block from the water. Has seasonal views of the protected harbor (means when the leaves are off the trees), and I made an offer to include all the furniture, especially the antiques, and the absolutely stunning oriental rugs through-out. It has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths - one of the full bath has a steam room, and an amazing shower which looks like a half moon made of glass. Just gorgeous. Everything has been re-done and refinished in amazing light-stained wood. New cabinets, new granite marble tops,All appliances included. What a find. Not cheap, but easilly do-able. I will also be able to rent it out when I'm not there as it's in such a gorgeous location. The downstairs has the re-finished original wood beams. All this after running a 10 home marathon on saturday and two on sunday morn. Built in 1820 by a local ship builder magnate (so much character) but has been completely renovated. Fireplace, wood stove, blah blah. I met with the owner on Saturday for a complete walk through. If the deal goes through, I will post images.
It's 1 block from the harbor, and multiple marinas (down the street), and 5/10th of a mile from a vibrant downtown that has so many art galleries, and museums it would take a year to see them all. Nevermind the parks, water sports (I see a boat in my near future), and obviously for me the photography. Oh yeah: The owner MUST leave ALL the lobster floats that are hanging around the property. If not, no deal :) Like I've said before: I just love the history, texture, color and look of those things…
Just as an FYI: I'm going back out to shoot some more soon, then I'm headed to San Juan Puerto Rico to shoot a wedding there. Most likely I won't be available until near the end of July. Have tons of (work) related images to sort through. Hundres of sttock images to keyword and upload. I also have to get packed and ready for this wedding shoot in 100 degree freakin' weather… At least I have the knowledge that after the wedding I have about six days to chill with a few Corona's on the beach as downtime.
