The Virtual Paintout location for March is Vilnius, Lithuania. I had no preconceptions whatsoever about Vilnius—it turns out to be a really beautiful city. Wonderful architecture, both old and contemporary, churches and monuments all over the place, lots of parks, broad avenues... and best of all, mostly nice weather when the Googlecar drove through.
In 2010 or 2011, somewhere around there, they upgraded their cameras, and it's a HUGE difference. Go to this location in Charleston, South Carolina, and then click the "go forward" symbol (^) on the ground, and toggle back and forth. You'll be shocked at the enormous difference between the 2007 and the 2011 camera.
Anyway. I found this little house while cruising past the Bernadine Cemetery. There was a gorgeous, huge tree and a nice gateway, but the light wasn't great, so I headed up the street and found this little gem.
