This striking architectural feature...
is a trick of the dark.
There is no S-curved section in the wall, just a shallow indented section, and on it, a shadow from the streetlight's own pole.
I should get a daytime picture. I've walked by that house countless times, but rarely at night. It's only recently that Garth and I have started taking regular evening walks. (How sweet they are, and all the more so since there are only sixteen evenings left before his trip to Nepal.) We were in front of Ray and Phyllis's, and we had stopped walking. I must have been trying to say something really profound, so profound that I couldn't put words in a string and put feet in front of each other at the same time. Then I interrupted myself with, "Is that wall curved?!?" We actually walked across the street towards it before I realized what I was seeing.
