What the hell? Charles, was this really the best photo you could take? Is there no place you can see it without peering through the undergrowth? All you can see is a wall!

@3 - Yes, this is the best option as long as there's the restraining order.

This is a sweet house, this is a crap photo, walking up the sidewalk 6 feet is a much better angle ..though I think Charles sort of delights in taking photos like this.

o_O I can't even tell what that is. It looks like a large white wall and some trees. WTF? Have we redefined the word "good" here to mean "abstract, indeterminate and vague"? I only know it's a house because olive oyl said so.

I live near by it. It's an odd house--that wall is the most prominent feature (and arguably its best feature).

Charles, if you're going to write about architecture, learn how to TAKE A DECENT PHOTO! A picture of a wall? Give me a damn break...

Chuck proves there is no accounting for taste.

I wouldn't say "we". But to Mudede? Yes.

I love ya, Charles, and I understand your attraction to buildings that express severity and power, but you really need to learn how buildings work in the context of cities. I have no idea what's going on in this photo, which for some reason was shot directly into the sun (again), but that's not a good building.

Now he's just messing with us.

Oh, good grief!

If he'd taken that shot on a foggier day, it'd be perfect.
