We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. ~Evelyn Dunbar
Lonely house on the Drina river, near Bajina Basta, Serbia. The other side of the river with (a little enhanced) autumn colors is Bosnian Srpska territory.The location is a little remote, but this thing is destined to become a photographer's whore in the coming years.
What is a photographer's whore?
It's not the Eiffel tower, or the Golden Gate Bridge, or the Taj Mahal, or the Pyramids, everybody knows and takes photos of those, but a photographer's whore is a more specific beast, not known to the masses of tour bus tourists, but one subject which photographers are drawn to like flies on shit, some such examples are the Kirkjufjell mountain in Iceland, that tree in Wanaka Lake in New Zealand, that house in Val d'Orcia in Italy, the bonsai rock in Lake Tahoe, Neist Point and the Old Man of Storr in Scotland, etc.
Lacock is a picture perfect little village in Wiltshire. It holds the title for the most filmed village in the U.K. Amongst other things Pride and Prejudice, Cranford and several Harry Potter's have been filmed here.

I love the graduation from dark blue to light & fiery color in the sky. This was a magnificent sunset and I wish I was able to do it better justice :)!

The Davenport House is the perfect example of charming architecture seen in Savannah ~
I am reading book one of four historic fiction books, named "Savannah" that Eugenia Price wrote about Savannah. In it she describes the building of this house and others that we saw while visiting there. I highly recommend this book and all of her others that she wrote about Georgia.
Isaiah Davenport House ~
The Isaiah Davenport house is a historic home in Savannah, Georgia that is operated as a historic house museum by the Historic Savannah Foundation.
It is located at 324 East State Street, on the northwest corner of Columbia Square.
The Federal-style dwelling neared completion in 1820 and first appeared on the tax rolls 1821. Masterbuilder Isaiah Davenport, a native of New England, designed and built the home as a dwelling for his growing household as well as a demonstration of his building skills.
The 1820 Federal-style dwelling was built by upwardly mobile artisan Isaiah Davenport and his crew for his growing household, which included his wife, children, and slaves. It was his family home until his death in 1827 when his wife, Sarah Clark Davenport, converted it into a boarding house. She lived in the residence on Columbia Square until 1840 when she sold it to the Baynard family of South Carolina. The house remained in their hands for the next 109 years. As time passed, the once stately home in a fashionable neighborhood became a rundown rooming house in a seedy part of town. Even in an advanced state of neglect, New Deal surveyors recognized the architectural significance of the home when they identified and measured it for the Historic American Buildings Survey in the 1930s. Threatened with demolition in 1955, a group of community-spirited citizens joined forces to purchase the Davenport House. This was the first act of the Historic Savannah Foundation, which has gone on to save hundreds buildings in the historic city through its renowned revolving loan fund and other historic preservation activities. In 1955, the Davenport House became the office for Historic Savannah Foundation as well as a family services agency. Sensing the potential for an historic site, the first floor of the house was restored and opened to the public as a museum on March 9, 1963. Years later the second and third floors were opened and Historic Savannah Foundation moved its offices to another building. Beginning in the mid-1980s leaders of the museum began an effort to adhere to professional museum standards. In the mid-1990s the museum began a re-restoration process, which resulted in a more authentic experience for museum visitors, including period wallpaper and period room furnishings which reflect the inventory taken at the time of Isaiah Davenport’s death in 1827.
The Davenport House was first opened as a museum in 1963. In 2005, The Davenport House Museum received the Preserve America Presidential Award. In 2010 it received the Georgia Governor's Award in the Humanities.
This building always fascinates me. It seems to be many things at the same time while also being a dwelling.
Happy Window Wednesday.
Coachwood Glen near Blackheath. Heavy cloud cover, perfect for finding secret spots like this. OK, maybe not so secret, it's just a few metres from the road on a well trodden path, but with no one else there, the sound of running water, light breeze occasionally rustling the leaves, it felt like my own special happy place.
A typical Chinese dwelling near the banks of the River Li in Guilin China. The city of Guilin is located in mainland China in the scenic Guangxi Province, which is about a two hours flight northwest of Hong Kong.
Note: In reading some of the comments left below, I wanted to correct the misunderstanding that this was was a slum dwelling. While conditions are quite spartan by western standards, I never felt that I was walking through an impoverished area. There was an active street market in front of this dwelling and along the entire street. Everyone we saw appeared very friendly and smiling as they went about their everyday shopping. The sweet elder lady whose photo is shown below was one such inhabitant.

More from the £5 Kodak! Still going eastwards, towards Gueret, the road from Montaguit Station to the village of St. Sylvain Montaguit, crosses the line less than 1km from the station. In past times, the crossing would have been protected by a pair of swing gates, operated by a large vertical handwheel in the house, but these have been replaced with the automatic half barriers. The house is now a private dwelling, an ideal residence for a railway fanatic!

And above all, watch with glittering eyes
the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always
hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
