Fabulous, Ming. So original for today's Theme. Love it!

Olivier said...

est ce que la maison est coupée en deux ;o) bonne idée de photo

is what the house is cut in two ;o) good idea photo

alice said...

Original and a nice pic too!

Chuck Pefley said...

Yes it is unusual seeing fractions. Interesting group of locks on this door. Glass blocks are also pretty rare these days, too. Good score today!

Glenn Standish said...

A nice pic Ming! I love the 1/2!!! Very cute!

ChChDaily (Michelle) said...

How bizarre! Thanks for posting, it's really unique.

Abraham Lincoln said...

The number is one thing, but the location of the lock is even more interesting. Never seen one like that in my life.

Hyde DP said...

a rarity indeed although I've seen a few - I remember seeing somewhere houses with a quarter and three-quarters in the number but can't think where it was.

Keropok Man said...

does it mean the house is smaller? hehe..

babooshka said...

I only know of one house that has a half number. Will have to photograph it now. Good choice.

Jim said...

1/2? How do you get your electric bill?

Marie-Noyale said...

A "Fellini..esque" note on this theme Day.
You sure are not suffering from that creative block though!
Great choice.

Mab said...

Hi,I dont think I've ever seen a half number on a door before.Good theme.

Sally said...

Love it!

Lori said...

That door has a lot of character! It is rare to see a number with a 1/2 on it in NYC. I can't remember seeing one before. I like the glass bricks next to the door. That must be a neat house.

DeeDee said...

Interesting number Ming...but I like the whole photo composition...were I to describe the entrance, I could use quite a few descriptive words indeed...

Kim said...

Ming, I love what you've found to share with us this theme day! Great take on the gray Soho door and it's unique number.

Love the photo Ming but I have a real thing for old doors. A turn of the century house in Shoshone, Idaho has the front door of MY house hanging at their house. I ponder it every couple of years.
Have a great week. Your having better weather than we are.

Nathalie said...

Oh you couldn't find that in France !!! It looks like a door straight out of Harry Potter's. In France you would have a number 178, then 178 bis (second)and if necessary 178 ter (third)but never a number and a half !!!

Ineke said...

that is weird. LIke in France we could have a 178 a and b and c and d but this is... weird.
Great choice for today!

Elizabeth said...

Sign me up!
I've got some numbers for you.
Will try to post them tomorrow.

Felicia said...

So true about half numbers! When there is new construction and no obvious room for sequential numbers I have wondered how they figure out what to do - can you imagine 178 and 3/4?!

Kelly said...

I used to live in a 1/2 address! It drove the mail carrier crazy! Great photo! The lock is in an interesting position, isn't it?

marley said...

Very strange! I've not seen this before. Here in the UK we have the number with the addition of a letter (I'm sure you have this too).

Happy Theme Day :)

Kuanyin said...

Leave it to you to come up with something novel!

Peter Fristedt said...

I seem to remember this. I like the photo very much, Ming.

• Eliane • said...

We have one like this in my area too but the door is much more bourgeois. ;) And now that I finally watched it, I can't help but think of Being John Malkovich - the door to his brain was located on a 1/2 floor, he he.

Knoxville Girl said...

Great shot for theme day - and the glass block is a bonus! We used to have 1/2 numbers downtown, but then the city council reworked the ordinances, and changed the addresses to whole numbers. The mailman was happier, though.

magiceye said...

sure is strange! 1st time am seeing it too!

Mo said...

Brillant choice. Crazy 1/2 a house?

Neva said...

Does this mean it is only half a house...or only has to pay half taxes?

Sonia A. Mascaro said...

Amazing photo! Really, I've never seen a house number like this before!

Kat said...

very rare indeed.

Monika N. said...

That door has personality!

J.C. said...

What a unique address! Wonder if the postman has a tough time recalling house no 1/2 or 1/4 or 3/4 or 1/3. Interesting indeed!
