Quatrefoil and Clocktower
The Courthouse is one of the most photographed buildings in Santa Barbara.
Still, the building itself sits on two sides of a city block. If you take
a closer look the details could keep you busy for weeks with a camera. I can't imagine
the effort that went into creating them.
The small window beneath the clocktower on the Garden side
is one of those details that you might easily miss.
If you look around you can find these Quatrefoil or "four leafed"
windows all throughout the architecture of our city but I think
this is the most ornate and beautiful example you'll find.
