I got up the guts. Knocked on the door: "Hi! I'm Kelly Reece, a photographer. I was hoping to use your backyard to shoot some pictures of the sky and water. May I have your permission?" "
Closed door. WHO CARES! HE SAID YES! Let's do this! I ran to get my effects
James River at Sunset
Once done I said thank you after ringing the door bell twice because they were trying to avoid me I suppose. I asked permission to shoot again if ever there were a decent storm coming our way. His caretaker said that's fine so long as I knock and ask again.
