the stone house is very harry potterish, and the whole series is great because it really brings home the uncanny sense of being off the map, outside of the routine/expected, and yet at the same time obviously recognizing the settings/events as being quite real/concrete, even around the block, or outside one’s front door.

And that first photo reminded me of the Pink Floyd album cover for “Wish You Were Here”.
