Sazonov house. Built in the 1890s in Ostashevo, Chuchloma, Kostroma region of Russia.
The history of the house is a little convoluted and obscure. Though it is commonly know as Sazonov house, there is speculation that it was not built by the wealthy merchant Sazonov, but by a man named Markov. Ropet is also credited with the design of the house, but it is not clear whether the house, which is a lot simpler than its blueprints, was built by Ropet himself or an architect that borrowed or was influenced by his ideas and aesthetic.

A wedding photographer took this picture from a rooftop to get a bird’s eye view of a wedding in progress. Something seemed odd about the balcony in the top right portion of the photograph.
This is what the photographer found when they zoomed in.

What the hell?
A word on “creepy”: I know it gets thrown around a lot without necessarily being explained, so I’ll take a crack at it.
