Home, 1998

17 Peckham Street, Rehoboth, MA • Click image to view panorama
This is one of my earliest surviving panoramas, and is of my house in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Before we sold this house and went cruising I documented the entire house with this new VR technology that was all quite experimental at the time.  I used Apple's QuickTime VR Authoring Studio (I think that was the name) to assemble this image.  This was taken in early April of 1998 with a Kodak digital camera --  I cannot remember which model it was. It took some doing to get this image converted to post on the blog... how times have changed.  The quality certainly isn't very good but it brings back memories. I built this house in 1974 when I was 25 years old with the help of Carol and many friends, and my Dad, who came out from Illinois for the first couple of weeks of construction. We hammered every nail, shaped every stick of wood and painted and finished everything before we moved in during the fall 1975, The main house with the gambrel roof was the original structure.  In 1989 I added the glass sunroom and the garage. The skylights in the garage roof were over my studio (upstairs) and the workshop (downstairs)

We attended a wonderful wedding in this magnificent church this past Sunday, Congrats Dana and Dan Danizig. And a special thanks to John and Anita for their hospitality -- and warm wishes to all the wonderful people we met and and the old friends we reunited with at the wedding. I will post more as I get them developed.

On our trip to New Jersey we had to stop at the Wine Library in Springfield, NJ.  Their website is a favorite and a great place to shop.  The store is phenomenal. I have been a big fan of Gary Vaynerchuck's podcasts for years ... check him out at The DailyGrape

Here is the store from the outside

Here is a view from the upstairs

And of course "the Vault"
