Lingering Look at Windows : Decorative surrounds

In Colonial times the widows were not just a square hole used to look out or in to a building, they had endless decorations, artistic surrounds, stone trims. I do not know the correct term for these adornments but they give the buildings style and beauty.

Hobart is a living museum of this Georgian architecture. I gaze up admiring the artistry of the master stone masons of a bygone era. The buildings stand tall and proud a magnet for my camera.

So this week I will showcase these stone surroundings of the windows in central Hobart.
