"I'd gone to West Palm Beach
to visit a friend and happened
upon this colorful house on
a walk through the neighborhood.
What chance was there that when
I told my friend about my day and
how I'd photographed this house
he'd tell me that just a couple
years earlier he and a few of
his friends had painted it to
look this weathered and worn?"
