Grey Gardens

Inspiration can occur in the most unlikely of places and at the most unexpected time. A few days ago while strolling around midtown Harrisburg, I came across a seemingly abandoned house from the late 1800s. I had often admired its wild and unexpected beauty while driving past in a car, but this was my first time within its proximity as a pedestrian. My viewing of this charming yet somewhat dilapidated structure brought to mind one of my favorite films, the Maysles brothers’ 1975 Grey Gardens. This off-beat documentary chronicles the live of an eclectic mother-daughter duo. Former members of high society, these odd yet winsome ladies dwelled in a ramshackle mansion in New York. Their unusual story has long been the topic of social controversy and an inspiration to those who wish to create style.
