A Seemingly Barn Like Ambiance

Red Doors on a Circa 1925 Garage in the Morning Shade Annapolis Maryland Historic District June 18th 2017

I actually came across this quaint looking garage during a morning walk in the Annapolis Historic District early last week. Recognizing it then as a setting I photographed four or five years ago yet for some reason it appeared different here of late. No I thought at the time it wasn’t the red hued barn style doors so it must be something else that I just could not quite place on that particular day.

Upon returning from a fairly long walk to West Annapolis this morning I happened across this same garage and decided to stop for a bit in order to ponder what was different about it today. Raising my camera in order to take a photograph of it the proverbial light came on in my mind. For you see nothing had changed in this setting as the door has always been red, to the best of my knowledge, nor has the garage’s stucco clad exterior been painted a different color, no it was simply that my perception of its setting has changed over the years.

Taking a moment to readjust my position at the end of the house’s brick paver driveway I took this single photograph, though today I brought more of the flanking shrubbery into the viewfinder, along with the columns supporting the small pediment roof over the house’s side door. Reevaluating my position a couple of times, moving to the right side of the driveway occasionally, I came to the conclusion that this was the best perspective of the garage in which to photograph.

As an aside before I continued on with my walk the name of the family responsible for having the attached house and this garage built in the mid 1920s came to mind that being the Caslers, Moreau and Berth. The couple would own their 1920s Colonial Revival style house for a relatively short time having sold it by 1927. Interesting enough Moreau Calser was a local photographer of the day, sadly thought he would later take his own life with a firearm.

Until tomorrow then,

Glenn
