I love visiting my sister and brother-in-law in the city. People do amazing things to beautify their neighborhoods, and it seems most folks like the interaction with others that comes from living closely together. There are also many pluses like museums, parks, theaters, cafes, and all that within walking distance – no need of a car.
There are times, however, that I find myself reminded of why I like living in a rural area. Out here we would consider this gated entry strangely paranoid. In the city it becomes a common-sense thing to do – acceptable and normal, even necessary for peace of mind. The reality of these different worlds is starkly different.
I used a texture from French Kiss and muted and smoothed the color. The entryway was spare and clean; the lines and curves as they were planned and everything in it’s place.
