Todays photos are still from the historical neighborhood but the subjects fall into the oddity category — things seeming not to fit within their surroundings or perhaps no longer revealing their original purpose or plan.
The first photo is a weathered statue in the midst of a front yard completely overgrown with hedge…near solid hedge covering the complete yard. There’s no real proof but I’m thinking perhaps there was a hedge maze at one time, left unattended, perhaps this statue the prize at the end.
The second image is a gateway which seems to have a far eastern flair — somewhat like a Japanese Torii. It doesn’t fit the style of the house it’s sitting in front of or the neighborhood in whole.’
Here’s an interesting fact, these two “oddities” are at/in the same house and yard. If I ever see the home owners I have to ask them the origin of these two.
B&W seemed right for these two images.
