Not too long ago I mentioned in this blog about how a tip I submitted to the RoadsideAmerica.com site was accepted. Two of my photos along with a short blurb written by me is now online. There were more photos of that place than what Roadside America could accept on its site so I’m just going to post the outtakes here.

There’s a local artist named A. Clarke Bedford whose art definitely attracts attention. Every now and then I see one of his art cars parked somewhere and take pictures. (The first time in 2013 and the second time just a few days later. I took some more recent pictures back in May.) I’ve had people tell me that his house in Hyattsville is just as heavily decorated as his vehicles. One of his websites, Vanadu.wtf, have his home address right on the front page so last month I decided to check it out in person. Yes, his house definitely stands out in a neighborhood full of cozy houses and tidy lawns.

And those photos just scratch the surface of that house. If you’re ever in the Washington, DC area and want to check the house out in person, his home address is listed right on the first page of Vanadu.wtf and on this page on RoadsideAmerica.com so all you have to do is program it into your GPS. You’ll be hard-pressed to miss it.
