The Truman House

The Truman Show was filmed in the town of Seaside in Florida way back in 1998. Feeling old now? This is the house where they filmed interior shots of Truman’s home. You’ll recognise scenes from the film if you visit the town, but trees and bushes are a bit more overgrown now.

Anyway, Automattic went to Seaside last September for our annual meetup. While the location is beautiful, the humidity and temperature even in September were unbearable for this Irishman. Some of my colleagues who are used to those conditions had no such problems but I was desperately glad to get into air conditioned buildings whenever I could! A few of us went for a photowalk late in the week. We set out at 7.30am before it got too warm and had a good time exploring the area. Yes, 7.30 in the morning!

Definitely worth a visit there, just go in the middle of winter when the temperatures are likely to be more manageable!

I really liked that movie. It would be funny to see the locations in “real life”.

I like the composition and color in this picture.

What are the names on the fence?

They’re the people who own the house. The local area has fairly strict by-laws. Every house has to have a white fence, and by the looks of things, the name of the owners on the front.

I thought it was odd there was a difference between the number over the door and that on the fence. I suppose one was probably used in the film.
