What's up with all the chain link fences around those nice houses? You don't see that often.

Nice houses? Not really. These houses were built in 1940-1943 for the coal miners and cost all of the folks around here US $3600 at that time. I think my folks paid $39 per month on their morgage.

That one house on the right just went through about $100,000 worth of renovation. I would not have done that myself. If I had that kind of money I would have moved to a different town/city.

Everyone around here has one or more dogs. The fences are to keep their own dogs from running free and other folks' dogs from coming into their yard.

But - That's sounds like a cozy ...;-D

In Finland we have a lot of areas where houses was built cheaply after World War II. A lot of people still live in these houses and a lot of them will be renovated.

I still like Pentax-M 40/2.8 pancake as nice lens. Sometimes I think it can even produce kind of "3D" look - could be much better on FF sensor, but not bad with APS too!

Here are couple of my shots with that lens (with K10D):
