Pictures of villages remind us of how humanity has socialized and built infrastructure to help them carry on in their daily lives.  From a photographer's perspective, these pictures also provide a way to explore beautiful colors, shapes, lines and patterns.  I also like how rural American and coastline villages show a very calm and peaceful aspect of life.
