You don't see light switches like these much anymore - at least not in new-build homes. But my father-in-law's condo, like all the condos around it in this cookie-cutter-concrete retirement development, is delightfully reminiscent of the style that reigned when the place was first built in the 1970s.

So during our recent visit, I found myself taking photos of the small-ish details that jumped out at me. While everyone else chatted and chowed down on snacks, I wandered around and quietly recorded scenes like this one. Life at the fringe isn't always glamorous, but it is memorable. To me, anyway.

That would be switched on over here in the UK.
