Don't Look Too Closely


Some places look better . . .


. . . if you don't look too closely.

How true, Jack. I hope everyone who uses those front stairs does it very carefully.

Luis Gomez said...

That is true for so many things Jack.

That's exactly what I think every morning when I look in the mirror Jack haha!!

Lowell said...

Very clever. I've notice that sometimes a place can look better in a photo than in reality. Unless, of course, you blur it! :-)

True, they could keep their yard a little nicer. But you can't really blame them for the bins. Where else are you supposed to keep them? :)

Kate said...

I think that the trash cans in the front yard are tip offs.

Sharon said...

You've proven your theory!

Most things closely examined are disappointing. That is my wife's complaint about blue ray disks, too much detail. Perhaps this house has been divided into apartments, so no one feels responsible for maintenance? Interesting.

I'm with Grace -- exactly what I think every morning when I look in the mirror, too!! Have a great day, Jack!

OK, looking closely I like the seminary more than this...

It stands out more when most of the houses in your area look so very well-kept. It's sad to see houses getting run down.

Very striking house... and trash!

Pretty soon the kids in the neighborhood will be calling it The Haunted House. Hopefully, the damage is only cosmetic.

Randy said...

It could be such a great looking home too.

Karl Demetz said...

OMG, this is so true, Jack!

LOLfromPasa said...

We are all a tad shocked. Amazing.

Janet said...

Beautiful house, just needs some cleaning up!

Marie said...

I could use that nifty old gate/trellis in their garbage! Their Christmas lights are (still?) up... I think there's hope for the fine old house.

RedPat said...

I'm with Grace on this one!
Maybe some elderly person who just can't keep up with things anymore lives there?

Ed said...

It's kind of sad, really....

Bob Crowe said...

Same principle applies to me.

Stefan Jansson said...

I wonder what the story is here.

SRQ said...

So true! I've never understood why people store trash cans in front of their home. Bizarre.

Andy said...

You captured a trashy but a fact of life scene.
