In 2006 when I started my photoblog, WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, I went round SF photographing windows and doors because I was fascinated by the Victorian houses and Spanish mission style homes. I ran a series of windows for that blog and then other subjects got in the way. Hence, I am so delighted when Teach Mary started a meme about these subjects that are so very close to my heart.
Lately, I have started shooting windows and doors again whenever I run an errand to the city. And here’s one of those I recently snapped.
WINDOW VIEWS AND DOORS TOO is a meme hosted by Teach Mary.

Hi Ewok, it is really pretty and I like the intricately design on the wall and the paint too. I noticed the adjacent building has a unique design too.
About my post, yes Frankenmuth, Michigan is a German community. The area was settled and named by conservative Lutheran immigrants from Franconia (now part of Bavaria), in 1845. The German word “Franken” represents the Province of Franconia in the Kingdom of Bavaria, and the German word “Mut” means courage, thus the city name Frankenmuth means “courage of the Franconians”.
The nearby villages of Frankenlust, Frankentrost, and Frankenhilf illustrate that the area remained a magnet for other Germans from the same region even after it lost its original purpose as a mission post for the spread of Christianity to the Chippewa tribe.”

I am also fascinated by the building in SF. They are all so different from what I’m seeing here in Michigan.
