Key West, November 2006

If "The Addams Family" went to Key West, they'd stay in this house, with its ominous shadow of gnarled dead branches and its anemic orchid on the front porch. It does seem somewhat forbidding, doesn't it?

I was bike riding one morning with my friend Sue when we passed this doorway, and I immediately slammed on my brakes to get a shot. Sue seemed a little mystified, but then when I showed her the photo she understood - she hadn't even really noticed the shadow. She said it was funny that something could be so obvious, yet we don't really see it.
