Operation Clean Sweep Bloomfield Township Earth Day - Photos - 04/19/08 03:49 PM
Clean Sweep weekend continues this weekend to co-inside with Earth Day. The snow hides so many things and when it thaws the cities can look pretty bad. Over 500 residents sign up to clean up after the winter. The township gives the volunteers bags for the trash and yard wastes. Subdivisions clean up their front entries and get them ready for the spring flowers that are trying to poke thru the ground. The day is perfect for it. The sun was shining with little hints that we might be getting a little rain in the afternoon.

Happy with my new camera - 04/19/08 09:11 AM
I purchased the finepix s8000 and couldn't be happier http://www.photoxels.com/pr-fujifilm-s8000fd.html Costco on line was offering a bag and card with it where other online stores were not. I believe there is still a $50 rebate if purchsed by the end of the month. These photos were taken of a house where I'm doing a quote for staging. They were taken so I could remember what's in each room. This is only the 2nd time using the camera.

Vacant House Transformation -- GOING GOING GONE - 04/09/08 11:32 AM
This was my first contact thru active rain that led to a job. What a thrill it is that the contact was a realtor/owner of a listing and she found me thru active rain. The house was vacant and staging it was a real pleasure. Going going gone
Agent/owner testimonial Virginia: Once the house was staged and we put it on the MLS, it was like a dollar sale at the Mercedes dealership!
We had so many people looking at the house it was amazing! The photos you took certainly spoke a thousand words. It was great because we (24 comments)
Diffference is like day and night - 04/08/08 10:47 PM
I recently staged a property for a realtor who agreed to use my photos :-) Thought I would share the exterior photos at different times of the day.
The photos are almost the same angle and shot. The big difference is the time of day. The difference is like day and night. I really wasn't happy with the first one that was taken around noon. The 2nd one was taken at 6 pm The sun is finally shining in Michigan. Look carefully at the grass and a few small snow piles are still there. (15 comments)
