House on a Rainy Day

This is a creative commons image, which you may freely use by linking to this page. Please respect the photographer and his work.


This photo appeared one day in my news feed on Facebook, no attribution. It had received 20,000 plus views and over 1000 shares. Finally I was given credit. Why "steal" when I'll give it away freely?


The photo was taken (with my old camera) in a light rain, which gives the vegetation an unusual look. This seems to be an Italianate house. It has two stories with a steep pitched roof, front gable and gables on both sides. The gables are characterized by gingerbread work. The porch is small with two entrances, neither with any prominent features. Steps lead to the porch which has turned balusters. Slender posts rise to the porch roof with slender ornamental brackets where they meet the roof. Woodwork of a cross-shaped design is suspended from the juncture with the roof. A glassed-in porch seems in keeping with the style of the home. Windows on the first level are tall with 2/2 panes; the second level windows are very slender 1/1. The house has an extension at the rear, which may or ay not have been part of the original. I have no date for this structure.
