Oriel, Victorian Circular Corner Bay Window, San Francisco by 

Around San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park are some of the most beautiful Victorian era houses. The houses are familiar to us, as they are so San Francisco.

I wasn’t expecting the level of exquisite detail so that is what I tried to capture here.
This is a detail of a round oriel window over the street corner.

    Another wonderful view of that captures the essence of the building but also becomes a beautiful photo about shapes and composition. There is a group called Shapes and Patterns, you may want to join. This would work well there I think!

  • I hadn’t thought of it as being a Unique Building of the World, but then I’ve never seen anything else like it, so I suppose it is
