SEND IN THE CLOWNS ... AT 7TH AND SAN VICENTE!

                             

Tongues were wagging this morning at 7th and San Vicente as "Rusty the Clown" made a rare appearance to mark the opening of the "whimsical" new home better known as "Casa del Bozo."  "It's the least I could do," said Rusty, "It's not often that a new home doubles as a Circus Attraction!"  Indeed, the Controversial New Home -- known for its topsy-turvy twists and turns, periwinkle blue paint scheme and rusted metallic sheeting -- has been the subject of much speculation as locals wondered, "Who in their right mind would commission something like this?"  Now, at last, the truth can be told:  No one commissioned it.  The architect built it for herself and moved-in several weeks ago.  Meanwhile, as for "Rusty the Clown," rumor has it he's been hired to squirt Seltzer Water at the home at various intervals to ensure that the entire edifice is Rusted-to-Perfection ...!

Marty, can you take a few photo's for us from different angles? I've said this before but  I kinda like it.......... Ducks pretty quick to avoid the empty Starbucks cups.
There's something about it that blows my hair back. Dunno what, but I'd like to see a few more pics if you ever get time.

I hate the color and lack of windows on some of it, but the shape is kind of cool. Yes, how about some more photos. Although it may look best with the clown standing in front of it. --Cin

Looks like a great place to do mental competency evaluations. Everyone will feel right at home. ~Mary

The photo (of the house) is entirely too flattering...the lighting and shadows are good, the slight change in perspective and line due to the blackberry-cam, and Bozo blocking a good deal of the facade...really make the place look interesting.  Every time I drive by, I wonder how the architect made it out of school, because there is no artistry of design.  But apparently she is doing something right...she purchased a lovely property to build on!
