I took these photos all within a few blocks of my home. I must have walked by more than once before I really saw them.
On the front porch of a Cowper Street cottage
This dome tops the building across the street from my apartment. Sometimes the window beneath the dome is lit at night. When I researched the dome online, all I found was the Flickr page of a renter in the building, who relayed the rumor that the top-floor apartment was the residence of the building's eccentric owner. Wonder if s/he owns a telescope.
These fellows are in the front yard of a nearby residence. I find them a little disturbing.
