At the beginning of this project, I asked the question where is home? And through these weeks I have shared with you the places and stories in Milton, but I have left this building until last. And with good reason, this is my home today. It might not look like much, but home is so much more than a big fancy building or lots of space. Home is where you choose to make it and who you choose to make it with. And while some days I feel like the walls of the condo are closing it, there is no place I’d rather be right now. And no place I’d rather share with Heather, my amazing wife, and oddly enough the day this was published is the anniversary of our engagement! I had to time this photo just right so that the light hit the building at just the right angle and meter it so that certain aspects would remain in shadow. And here friends the project ends, I hope you have enjoyed the little tour of Milton and the places that have left an impression on me, and thank you for taking the time to read and look. And most important a big thanks goes to my amazing wife Heather, who again supported this crazy project! Two things inspired this project first was my desire to capture on film several historical buildings in Milton, including the Robertson Factory, the old Southside Building, among others. The second is fellow photographer Jess Hobbs’ own project on their hometown and capturing it on film.
