After we dropped a package off at the post office, we drove aimlessly around town… and then we ventured down a road we hadn’t been on before, which brought us to “Rainbow Acres” development.  This is the “rich” part of town, where more often than not you find that people have built actual homes (often adobe) on decent size lots.. not just park models, model homes or RVs. If I had seen this little display in any other part of town, I would not think it strange.  But, here, this is where the “rich” people live and this is one of the first homes seen as you drive in. Apparently the gold in the miner’s cart says as much.

Post processing was done in Aperture: adjusted levels, burned and dodged and tweaked definition and vibrancy.

  2. This is pretty odd, but hey, to each his own!! You captured the moment in all its strangeness!

  3. hopefully the homes are better looking than those 2 guys!

  4. Very weird. What does the sign say?

  5. How quirky, but how fun! I am sure you are not the only ones stopping in front of this house! :) A riot!
