The Manor Sideways

Every photo I've taken of Phantom Manor has been from its front or approach side--the most iconic angle that the Imagineers clearly devoted the most attention to.  But that doesn't mean ol' Henry Ravenswood's abode looks plain from other angles.  Indeed, guests escaping the attraction come upon the graveyard at the back and side of the house, along with a view of the estate from that side.  And nestled behind the foliage of this garden area, it almost seems to lurk, as though trying to camouflage itself.  That's a different appearance from the very prominent position it holds from downstream in Thunder Mesa, and it's part of the wonderful craft of how the Imagineers can impart different moods and feelings to even the same building!
