I got a rare chance to peek inside local jewelry manufacturer and antiques dealer Gertrude Zachary‘s amazing downtown home recently for The Wall Street Journal. You can see the photos on their site here. If you’d really like to see more, double-click any of the photos above or follow this link to my archive where you can see the whole take. Big thanks to Jakob Schiller for helping with lighting. We had to move quickly, and it was a challenge with so many rooms, so many chandeliers. I’m just glad we didn’t break anything of more value than an old Nikon SB-28.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.
