Rockwell Home

Found on a meandering motorcycle ride in Northern Colorado is a house that looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. This beauty I turned around for. It is all at once whimsical and patriotic, and has a timeless Americana feel to it. Lemonade and hot dogs anyone?

Schank Seed Company

A seed company that once was open and thriving has now gone to seed. In addition to the ‘Americana’ feel to this, I am struck by two things. First there is the curious spacing on the painted lettering. It appears they created space to allow the door full exposure, without the possibility of distraction from letters. But more striking are the white stains behind the windows which to my eye creates a very real ghost like effect. Scary as hell, me thinks.
