i was heading home from real food daily yesterday and out of the corner of my eye i saw this perfect little mid-century (or earlier) house.
so, of course, i stopped and took pictures:
and, of course, i went home and tried to find out some/any information about the house(is it a case study house? who designed it? when was it built? etc?).
which was, of course, impossible.
as either there's no information to be found about this perfect little house, or i'm just egregiously bad at finding out information about perfect little houses.
in any case: it's a perfect little mid century house with perfect little rectilinear proportions and perfect little clerestory windows and a perfect little yard and a perfect little entrance way and it looks as if some remarkable architect designed it, although i don't know who(m).
oh, per usual i couldn't take pictures of the sides or the back, as they're hidden by trees, and as much as i like taking pictures of people's houses i don't really want to become a creepy house stalker and end up in jail for taking pictures of the sides of people's houses.
i can imagine the prison conversation:
'hey what are you guys in for?'
guy 1 - 'i was smuggling ar-15's from turkmenistan to newark'.
guy 2 - 'i blew up a bank in arkansas.'
guy 3 - 'i ran 10 crystal meth labs in dominica'.
me - 'i was taking pictures of mid century architecture in l.a'.
so, i'll stick to the street and not go to jail for being a creepy architecture stalker.
