We saw this entrance feature to a residential subdivision outside Bastrop, Texas. We liked it so much we came back to photograph it. It reminded us of the past when a monument marked something special and of interest. It also reminded us that bigger is not always better. The classic column has a bed for a pretty foliage and a light on top so the entrance can be seen at night. The dark stone compliments the native landscape. Be on the lookout for a replica in some of our projects. As Chales Caleb Colton said, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
