Rustication. Always rather imposing.
WanderingAlan: Chad

Had to look up the meaning(s) for "RUSTICATION"

rusticated; rusticating
intransitive verb
:to go into or reside in the country :follow a rustic life
transitive verb
1 chiefly British :to suspend from school or college
2 :to build or face with usually rough-surfaced masonry blocks having beveled or rebated edges producing pronounced joints a rusticated facade
3 a :to compel to reside in the country
b :to cause to become rustic :implant rustic mannerisms in

In classical architecture rustication is a range of masonry techniques giving visible surfaces a finish that contrasts in texture with the smoothly finished, squared-block masonry surfaces called ashlar. The visible face of each individual block is cut back around the edges to make its size and placing very clear.

When I chose the photo I chose it merely for the composition and contrasts of lines.

You each see your own meanings.
