I thought I had seen pretty much everything in the Sunset, and it would just be a matter of re-discovering, or looking at things in a different way from now on. But I really have no memory of these houses on 29th Ave.
I wonder when I see two houses painted the same color. Are they owned by the same family? Do neighbors just want to coordinate? Did they get a discount by hiring painters for two jobs at once?
But there is more than that going on here. Look at the statues. My Greek and Roman mythology is a little rusty, but I think that's Venus and Zeus.
The house on the left has some other additions. A cherub:
And these guys:
The house on the right isn't quite as fancy, but they've added gold paint here and there.
But it has statues of Artemis (or is that Diana?) and Apollo.
I love it when people go that extra step to make their homes stand out.
