To earn a crust I provide photography and floorplans for estate agents. I am privy to the most intimate parts of people’s home lives. I see where they sleep, what strange items they keep by the bedside, what they wear to bed, I can tell how rigorous they are about changing their beds, I try to guess which side is the husband’s and which is the wife’s. Sometimes I have to get slightly too close to the vendors. I have had more than enough of handling their toilet brushes. I touch, on average 720 loo brushes a year – after about 9 years of doing this job that’s 6480!!! I frequently have to move toilet brushes in sloshy brown-watered holders along with toothbrushes into the same not-in-the-photograph holding area. I worry that there could be a terrible spillage and I wonder how I would broach the subject with the vendor. “Right, well I’m finished up in the bathroom, I have all the pictures I need. . . It might be an idea though if you were to throw out the bathroom mat, and your hand towels, oh, and all of your toothbrushes.” The ‘moving-people’s-stuff-around-memory-game’ is at no point fun – I have to move people’s clutter out of shot, remember exactly where everything was, and put it all back, without breaking it. Some days I am besieged by clumsiness. I will be upstairs clanging and clonking what sound like iron anvils against doors and walls and the vendor is downstairs wringing their hands in anxiety calling up to me. “Is everything ok?!” “Oh yes, I just dropped my hanky!” I get stuck in a vicious circle in empty properties checking and double-checking front doors, back doors, garage doors, to make sure they are exactly as I have found them. I have spent what must total several days stood at a set of PVC patio doors lifting that handle whilst trying to jiggle the key locked, failing, swearing, poring over the locking mechanism like a chimp trying to poke a stick in an ant’s nest, trying again, failing again and having a hissy fit before eventually managing to lock it after an Incredible Hulk-esque roar. People are usually lulled into a false sense of security when I am at their homes. I am there so long that they just accept me as part of their world, as if I am the cat wandering around. They start preparing dinner, have showers, put on Sky Plus and watch re-runs of This Morning whilst drinking beer. The lady of one house wopped her baps out and happily breastfed baby while I drew the floorplan around her. “Oh, I’m sorry, would you like a drink?!” “Oh yes, thanks, I’ll just latch onto your spare nipple shall I?” Smell is one of the most fascinating things that differs in each home, in each room even. I walked into an immaculate property last week and was hit with a wall of putridity. I kept looking in corners for the decaying, wet dog carcass but there was none. Probate houses always smell of kidneys. Utility rooms smell clean and dirty at the same time. Going into a teenager’s bedroom I will usually benefit from the Lynx effect – which I love - or the scent of sleep. Everybody’s bedroom first thing in the morning has the soporific aroma of sleep itself – warm, fuggy, though not unpleasant. It’s a combination of laundered cotton, warm skin – and is hopefully not infused with beer breath and stale farts. I love using other people’s soap. It’s my little treat at the end of a job; I use their loo (though not their loo brush) and try a new and exciting scent out. I then drive away sniffing my hands whilst trying to work out what primary school teacher the scent reminds me of. There’s nowt as queer as vendors. In one property, the vendor decided that my visit to photograph the house coincided with her own sudden urge to. . . . . . yes, photograph the house. If she had been a three year old child following me around with a red and yellow Tomy camera it may have been understandable but instead she was a diamond-encrusted, stinking-of-good-genes, comfortably-lifestyled MILF, just come home from coaching a clutch of close friends at the tennis club. “Oh I just do it for fun!” She wore an arctic white puffa, which of course had not a speck of air, let alone dirt on it. If I wore a white jacket to play tennis it would be French Grey before it even left the shop. Anyway, I am busy setting up my shots and getting the lighting right and she is following me around, sashaying across my shots, taking photos of the same room! “It’s funny, I have never taken photos of the house before, It’s really rather fun. Have you tried this angle over here? Have you shot this room from this corner, see how I have done it; I think that’s rather good, don’t you? Why don't you try it?” Imagine, you finally manage to get the plumber round to fix the pipe under the sink and just as he gets started you squeeze yourself and your 'Reader’s Digest Book of Plumbing' under there with him with and announce that you have always wanted to fix your own sink. “This looks easy.” You exclaim, “Have you tried unscrewing that thing
Java House
Java House
An old, Victorian style home from the early 1900s, Java House emits a chic comfort, eclectic pairings of scratched mahogany chairs with framed photos of various scenes in France- an old metallic bike leaning against a cast iron fence, a black and white shot of slanted buildings, the arch of their windows winking along the narrow alley. Hung on the North side of the shop, a ornately framed blackboard boasts the various coffee drinks offered, each written in bright colors and a bold, all caps lettering. She walks up to the counter and says she wants something blended with coffee. The barista smiles and begins to mix something behind the counter, pouring coffee and caramel into a glass pitcher and stirring with a thick metal spoon. In a few moments she slides a frothy beverage across the counter and as their eyes meet, she winks. “For the caramel lover in you.” She is like a prophet, hitting Josie’s weak spot with uncanny precision. Josie takes the drink in her hands and lifts the straw to her mouth. The blend of coffee and caramel slides down her throat, easily moving into her stomach and bloodstream. She returns the wink. “You got it right, my friend. This is delicious.” She hands the girl a five dollar bill and says to keep the change, then walks to her hidden spot where she can observe the customers without them making a scene to examine her. A man walks in a few minutes later, as she is setting up her laptop. He marches in with an air of conviction, as if he has places to go and this is stop one on the tour. “So you’re the new guy,” he states to the boy behind the register. The boy’s face shades pink and stumbles upon his answer. “Yes.” “When did you start?” He inquires, and there is a friendliness in his voice that was not there when he first breezed through the door. “Last week.” “Last week, huh? Well then, let’s get you some practice on that espresso machine!” he launches into his order and the boy buzzes around, pulling shots and flavor syrups. Josie watches the scene with an insightful eye when she notices another man has snuck in and is surveying the coffee house. He is pretty, with smooth brown hair pulled back in a short ponytail. Angular jaw with the start of the day’s stubble, skin browned from an affair with summer’s sun. White sunglasses crown his head, which sparkles in the morning light through the front door. He gets in line and patiently waits to order. When the old man is done, he compliments the boy on his work.”Very good, son. Very good. We’ll see what else you can do next week,” and he breezes down the stairs as loftily as he climbed up them. Josie pulls her eyes away from the front of the room and settles herself further into a mocha colored cushion. A potted plant on the windowsill catches shadows from tree branches stretching across the pane on the other side. She glances into the narrow driveway past the clear crinkled curtains hanging open on a black iron pole. The building next door is an antique furniture store, housing white paint chipped dressers and jangly crystal and gold chandeliers. She can see the shoppers move about the aisles, trailing their fingers along the stained vases set on top of wood burned tables. I should go over and see if there’s a dresser for my bedroom, she muses, but knows she won’t take the plunge today. Instead, she opens the wrapping of the chocolate chip bread bought with the blended caramel drink and breaks a piece off the corner. The taste of chocolate soaks into the bread, rushing together against her tongue. The computer still whispers for her attention, so she takes one more look around the room. She sees the face of the beautiful stranger in the reflection off the mirror lined on the counter. He is reading, some memoir of an Austrian diplomat whose name she couldn’t catch, the text small and backwards through the glass. “Get to work, Jos,” she reprimands herself. But the speakers are spilling out some trumpet number, and while she appreciates a good brass solo every now and then, the music will be of no help when coaxing words onto her manuscript. Scrolling through her list of artists, many catch her eye, but one catches her ear for this moment. Gregory Alan Isakov. Yes—he’s perfect right now, for the corner French table hidden in the back of the shop, where light spills in on the right side of her body through the life size windows surrounded by old, worn wood frames. She tells her computer to make a playlist off of “Light Year” and opens up a new document, fresh white page blinking at her with expectancy. Her mind is full of fantasy, of dreams and hopes and ideas the world must understand. But where to begin? What opening mark will enchant the reader and open their mind to all they’ve been too afraid to understand? Her hands hover over the keyboard. Then, as if taking on a life of their own, the fingers reach down and gently touch each key, slowly, gently at first, testing out their weight, then gathering speed as the words tu
