It's amazing that you can walk past something time and again and not really see what it is. This is the basement door to my neighbor's house, it is actually right at street level and I walk my dogs past, usually on the other side of the street, multiple times every day but I until a few days ago I never took note. The colors and texture are great although it probably isn't good for the wood not to have any kind of protection but I suppose if they were more fastidious home owners it wouldn't be an issue. Anyway, the moral of the story is to pay attention to your surroundings.
