While I was photographing this last rectangular panel of blue stucco a couple and their baby came out the front door of the apartment building and looked at me curiously. "I like the colors on your building," I hastened to explain. This made them laugh. I got the impression they had privately decided long ago that the paint-job on their building was atrocious.
