Day 17: Same but different

Day 17: Same but different, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I love to see how people make houses their own and this row of houses is a reflection of that. Although this is a row of 4 identical Victorian homes, the choice of colour has made each stand out as an individual statement. However, each has made a statement in an identical way - with the splashes of colour being different in hue, but not in location - conforming non-conformists.

So often we make our statements inside our homes - while the outside projects a more uniform facade. In summer we are able to add our personalities through our gardens - in the flowers we plant (or not). But that is more ephemeral. In winter, our houses stand exposed to the elements, dusted with snow and without the benefit of the vibrant colours nature brings in summer.
