Window Views: The Red House



I really like the red and green and the round window.

This is the best shot I could get of the entire building. A dark cloud passed over and by the time it moved on a truck was parked in front.

What an odd looking building!
At first, I thought I didn't like the green with the red brick, but when you see the whole building, it does look very striking.

Really, the doorway fascinates me.

Quirky! I like quirky!

Is it a home or a shop of some kind?

'There's an old piano and they play it hot,
Behind the green door.
Don't know what they're doin', but they laugh a lot,
Behind the green door.
Wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's
Behind the green door'

What a cool looking house, I'm guessing house since there is no sign. Would like to see who lives there.

At first sight I thought the round window was painted blue. I thgough, "how strange?" and then I noticed it's a reflection! The arches of the door and the window are beautiful!

I like the window shot .. the middle one seems to be reflecting the sky!

The colours of the doors and windows are striking with the brick.

I can identify with trying to take a photo and then a car or truck gets in the way. I chuckle NOW but when it's happening I think naughty words. LOL

Great find! Sometimes what looks like a simple shot ends up being difficult.

That's a beautiful building! I love the rich red of the brick--and the contrast against the green paint really makes the whole thing pop.

Such an unusual boxy building overwhelmed by huge windows and door! And the windows are in contrast with each other! Fascinating!
