Fully Baked

Fully Baked

My new image for the DailyPhotoGame.com.

Robert"s storefront bakery image, "Hansel and Gretel", had so much color and pattern to it, this got me thinking. I know of a local house that embodies the local saying "Keep Portland Weird". The house's bright colors, objects d'art, the signage and all of the rest of it is so over-the-top, I thought it would make for a good conversation with Robert's image.

Not sure what they are bake'n in this place, and I am pretty sure I don't want to know.

The house is crazy, and the car that goes with it is even worse. Be sure to click on the thumbnail to view the larger file, note the upside down Barbie's hanging from the trees.

I suppose it verges on the surreal, but I am pretty sure the neighbors can't appreciate the irony.

Feel free to comment and share below, Thanks!

    Sometimes. When I drop my daughter off for a playdate in the Southeast, this is the “type” of house I encounter. To Frankie it’s “cool”. To me, well, I check for shallow graves. I love the freedom of expression on these homes – colors, use of “stuff” and a definite statement re:city code guidelines.

  2. Thanks for commenting Paul. Next time I pass by I will keep an eye out for “shallow graves”.

    When “work-to-be-seen” folks attempt to pull my chain I tend to ignore them and move on. Pity those living nearby who, should they want to sell, take a 25-50 thousand dollar decline in property value based on proximity. The home would be a great fit alongside other images in a book once viewed (the title of which is too inflammatory to repeat).
