I like this a lot. First, you have a good eye for original subjects. Besides the fine building of the house, I also feel the need to point out the original foliage you display here. I object to the note about this being lifeless. I think it has an elegance to it. It also captures a look that I think I also remember from somewhere. I might be thinking of San Francisco (just now I am blanking on the name of the hilly, upscale town just north off the golden gate bridge).
