Why the back? It must be the contrarian in me, but I found the back of the house to be more interesting than the formal front that normally gets all the attention. The front is where “company” is shown into the house, the work is done ’round back. Besides, at this time of day the light was much more interesting.
Of course this doesn’t mean that I might not photograph the front some other time; I’m keeping my options open. I think this would be good advice if I was in the advice business, or if anyone ever asked me; “Don’t just look at the front, explore and keep your options open”. Not that anyone asked.
