The owner of this house once told me, “I used to play football with OJ Simpson in high school. I taught Carlos Santana how to play guitar. I am running for mayor in 2012.”
He dresses his home up each year for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
As seen on the south slope early one morning around 8:30am.
On overcast mornings such as this, the dramatic blue and subtle orange-yellow color palette practically make this house pop off the block.
I’ve yet to meet the new owners. (It sold recently.) The stacked architecture leads me to believe this was at one time a garage, barn, or storage structure. If you know more, do tell in the comments.
There are a lot of interesting looking homes in the south slope of this neighborhood. I hope to photograph as many as I can in the coming weeks, months, and years. The only rule is: no cars parked in front.
