The Flat Iron Building San Francisco by 

I have have seen serveral of these in my travels and in other peoples images and I am always fascinated by the architecture. This Flat Iron Builing is in San Francisco California.The buildings looks flat (even though they are triangular) when taken from this angle. I dont know if all big citys have one. I have seen the one in Atlanta but I havent found one in Los Angeles yet. Ha something to do.

    was this one taken in Atlanta? NYC has one. Seattle has a very strange, very small version of this, it looks like it’s about two feet wide from one angle. :-) Great shot!

  • Im sorry Barb I didnt complete my thoughts this morning and thought everybody could read my mind. I have edited my discription and my title. Thank You for that. This was the Flat Iron Building in San Francisco right in the center of the business district. There is a See candy store in the leading edge and next door is a Starbucks. They know a good thing when they see one!

    Wonderful photo
    Those buildings are very interesting. It makes you wonder if that was all the land they could afford or what the story was that made them build it in that shape.

  • I think they like creating the optical illusion! Thank you very much Estes.
