This combination of the white house and car is something that appealed to me in an "off the beaten path" and " Michigan slice of life" sort of way. To me, scenes like this tell stories. Not a dramatic, interesting or prize-winning story; but a story in the simplest sense of the word. People pass this place every day and probably don't give it a second thought, or first thought for that matter. However, various details explain small bits of information. The stacked-wood pile, which partially blocks a front window, is nicely stocked so it would appear this individual has decided on a very cost-effective heating method- either by choice or necessity. Every window is curtain-covered except the one in the top right corner; why? Meanwhile, the car and the house appear to have some type of agreement that despite their state of datedness and slight disrepair, they will maintain their stark white color.
