Polish Rainbows in Newtown?

So while I was walking one evening last week I saw a rainbow over a house upon further inspection I saw a very puzzling sign and flag. Is there really a Polish embassy in little Newtown? Either way it's a nice rainbow and a very interesting house. Also a mystery to be solved.

That or an audacious Pole with a penchant for signs. Great shots!

Leora said...

Oh, what a wonderful rainbow! And why some red shutters and some black? Lovely shade of red on those shutters.

I thought Embassies were in capital and Consulates in any other place of interest, but this is too nice to be contradicted. Maybe they got extraterritoriality too...
Very good catch!

I love mysteries and great pictures, you have them both. Let us know if you solve it.

Martha Z said...

Nice rainbow. I hope you let us in on the mystery when you solve it.

Toria said...

It must truly be the (or an) embassy or the resident loves the Polish colors--the house colors match except for a little black--or both! Either way, the house is charming, and the rainbow is beautiful!

Matches the Polish national flag - white and red stripes! Fantastic rainbow - the only one I ever photografed was on a stormy dark gray sky as a background! Lovely!

Wren said...

Hmmm ... is it old enough to date to the time when philadelphia was the capital of the US?

Irene Toh said...

Riddles is right.

Ai Shiang said...

That is a rather cute polish embassy. I thought most embassies are located in Capital cities, don't they?

Sally in WA said...

Very interesting, James. You'll have to find out more about the Polish embassy since Poland is a favorite place of mine.

david mcmahon said...

Keep us posted, James. I'd love to know.

This could be the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow.

Gaelyn said...

Go in and ask for a visa and the mystery will be solved! Nice shot.

Reader Wil said...

The house is fascinating and great James. But the rainbow beats it all!

Must be a duplex with two people who don't like each other.

Gaston Studio said...

Congrats on POTD Contender, which is how I found you. What interesting photos and a definite mystery!

itsnotjustapicture said...

nice captures James...you were lucky to capture that lovely rainbow. like the two different colored shutters on the Polish Embassy.
have a wonderful day.

Pam said...

Isn't it amazing what you can see on a walk around town. Your world just got bigger, James.

Abe Lincoln said...

Maybe it is a Polish citizen who is homesick.

happilyretired said...

BEAUTIFUL rainbow in the first ... lovely red shutters ... perfect for Ruby Tuesday ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Interesting.

J said...

Perhaps they're Polish or Polish ancestory? There's a German flag flying outside a house down my street in England, not because it's an embassy but because the woman who lives there is German. Did you find the end of the rainbow?!

Brit Gal Sarah said...

Aha I suspect it's the residence of a proud expat like myself! Great piccie and subject.

Cheffie-Mom said...

Congrats on the Post of the Day mention!

Brian Miller said...

great capture! lol. congrats on the POTD mention!

Ai Shiang said...

Hello James, just thought I let you know that I've posted a post on how to enlarge pictures. A few bloggers questioned me on how to do it. Instead of emailing them, I posted it just so anyone who needs it can try it out. Check it out and have fun!
