“I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly.” – Maya Angelou

What a perfect quote for this image, Robyn.
Wonderful words and image! Who wouldn’t want to live there. It’s iconic!
That could be the house of Tom Sawyer’s Aunt Polly. The one he persuaded his friends to paint the white picket fence.
I wanted to be June Allyson! As in Jo, one of the Little Women. A gorgeous shot with a very touching quote!
I wanted marry Jimmy Stewart and live in the big old house in IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Ah, the dreams we have!
I’ve not read this Maya Angelou post … what an incredible woman she was. Sigh …
This photo is also great. I’d love to know what the room on the other side of that window looks like
and there it is!! Wonderful in mono!
Oh yes, my dream house too! This was built for black and white photography, wonderful image!
