Sometimes when I'm on assignment I take photos of things that I know won't make the cut. For example, the last property that Beautiful Places sent me to was a cute little cottage amongst the vineyards in Yountville at Tamber Bey winery. The sun was setting and illuminating the scenery just beautifully. I had to create some images for myself (without taking to much time from the job at hand). Light happens. When it's right and I have my camera, it's on. These photos didn't make the cut to Beautiful Places, but perhaps they'll find a home in my portfolio or on my wall.
