A straw bale home in Colorado was one of coolest places I have ever photographed.
My images were featured inMother Earth Living, Boulder County Home and Garden and in
Housing Reclaimed by Jessica Kellner a few years ago. I often think about the beauty of this home. If you want to learn more about this home check out the story at: http://www.motherearthliving.com/green-homes/straw-bale-building-zmfz12mazmel.aspx. For a more in-depth look at the home check out Housing Reclaimed on Amazon.
I enjoyed listening to the homeowners talk about their experiences building their house with reclaimed materials.
The exterior images (above and to the right) were a bit tricky. I thought it might be fun to show you the setup. To get these images I needed to use a 16 foot ladder.
I have included a picture of my setup (below).
5d Mark II
24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Attached my tripod to the top of the ladder.
Radio triggering system (Pocket Wizards) with a remote camera cable from the ground.
The detail shots below are great examples of how much labor and love went into building this home.
Here are a few of the interiors of the straw bale home:
