Façade


A building's façade is its principal front.  A façade is also a false front
maintained to hide a less desirable scene behind it.
This one is in West Suffield, Connecticut.

On the first day of each month, City Daily Photo bloggers post photos illustrating a theme.  
This month's theme is "façade."  To see other interpretations, click here.

What a perfect contribution to the theme!

I was thinking about something like this, but I didn't find anything suitable. Yours choice is perfect and also a beautiful photo.

Nice shot. I was hoping to find something like this too but didn't. Love the rusted tractor out front too. Many of those down my way in Orange.

Kate said...

I found a false front in Madrid, NM but it isn't as attractive as this one. Perhaps I'll post it later on my Santa Fe blog. Composition on this one adds lots of interest to your photo.

Love the scene and also love the interpretation! I was trying for one of those false front photos last week, but no go. Very nice!

A perfect facade, Jack!

I've just stepped into a dream. Forget the beautiful Versailles architecture and gimme this.

Good one. It leaves me with a lot of questions!

Randy said...

Marvelous choice for theme day.

Kay said...

Good interpretation of the theme! Reminds me of the emperor's new clothes.

Love that old tractor.

The greenhouse front looks a bit lonely and is probably embarrassed that it does not fool anyone. Great shot!

A fine example, great angle and that tractor is quite something.

Taken For Granted said...

Jack, thought you might like to know that the old tractor is a Fordson Model F (1918-1925), 20 hp if running. They are not worth a great deal, but sure make a great photograph.

Taken For Granted said...

Jack, after hanging around with antique tractor collectors a certain amount of information rubs off. Enjoyed your post a great deal.

William Kendall said...

And that surely qualifies!

Halcyon said...

Gorgeous!

Buck said...

A textbook example of a facade. I hope they get some plastic up and get that greenhouse running again!
