The Weekend in Black and White: Downtown Durham, NC


This house sits in a part of Durham, NC that is mostly office buildings and parking lots. I find it charming but wish the car hadn't been in the driveway.

Your photo of the heritage home reminds me of a classic black and white movie where shadow adds atmosphere to the scene. The big tree frames the house perfectly and had the modern car not been parked there, this picture could have been taken decades ago. Lovely shot, Carver, I have a feeling you will be taking its picture again someday. :)

Love these style houses; would love one with a covered porch, a rocker and an outside beer fridge. Retirement, love it.

I agree with you. The car seems ruin the vintage old look of the house. Awesome shot!

I like the way you framed it with that big old tree to the right.

You're right - a charming house. The car does spoil the view a bit.

lol, I agree about that car. But we don´t always have it our way. The building looks very good in your shot. :)

Beautiful old house, great photo; they need a heritage car to go with that house.

It is a nice home with great siding. It's lovely in monochrome!

A very lovely heritage home.

A modern car does spoil the look of that beautiful house of another time.

It is great for black and white..I keep forgetting about participating..

Yes, the driveway should have sported a bent over figure with swishing black coat and homburg, to complement the style of house.

Such a pretty someplace, and the reflections in the second floor windows area great. Sorry about the car, but it is still a wonderful shot. genie

I like this house, too. Your image makes me think of an Edward Hopper painting.

Beautiful shot!
I agree with the car, but we don't always get what we wish for, no?
