Now that window is odd - makes me wonder if they've had water intrusion problems. Or if the building was at one time more or less a wreck that someone rescued and restored. The picture brings far more questions to my mind than it answers.

G'day JJ + Mtngal

It is odd - esp as it appears to be 90deg out of alignment
Maybe this will help ...




Now - what's this window up to?

That's better! I couldn't figure it out last night at all - didn't occur to me that it was sideways but once you said something, it's obvious.

Fascinating photo. I like the detail in the stucco surrounding the window.

I, too, was taken in by the rotated photo. It seemed like extremely odd construction or repairs. Once seen in the correct vertical position, everything fell into place.

This is one of those illusions that can really fool the old eyeballs.

I sorta fell in love the first view. Now my reverie is all broken.
Actually now that you mentioned it is a lighthouse the construction also makes sense.
