Pattern Recognition.

There's a house in my neighborhood that kind of makes me giggle a bit every time I pass by

as it reminds me of this

Charles Demuth's I Saw the Figure Five in Gold.

which was inspired by this:

The Great Figure

Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5
in gold
on a red
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.

-Williams Carlos Williams

Just one of those silly things, I guess, but it pleases me and I'm thankful to the owners for their choice of house number.
