Monday Visual Inspiration: The fun of juxtaposition

Still on a deadline, kids. No rest for the weary...or catty, in my case. Anyway, I thought I'd show y'all some interesting images I've taken over the past year that show odd things next to each other.

This little wee barely-1,000-square-feet house is in Cherry Creek North, a very posh neighborhood in Denver. The surrounding buildings are 3,000sf stucco and lick-n-stick stone behemoths, but this little throwback to Denver's rural past refuses to budge. Plus, it's on a double lot. You just know the owners are loving. it.

A lone gate-like sentinel in the north Country Club neighborhood. There's a big iron lantern-thing on top, but it doesn't appear to have electricity in it (from where I was anyway), and there's no gate or fence attached to it. It's just standing there in this person's side yard, begging everyone to remember when it was useful.

You're an iron fence? Well screw you, I'm a vine!

Old-school in the shadow of new-school.

I love the Denver photos, Pixie; I'm always tickled when you post them. Sometimes I can even remember where the buildings are!

#3 made me LOLZ! And that teensy little yellow house? WANT.

My word verification is shante. Like Roxanne Shante. "Roxanne, Roxanne / I wanna be your man!"
