California - Oakville: Robert Mondavi Winery
Robert Mondavi Winery, at 7801 St Helena Highway in Oakville, was founded by Robert Mondavi in 1966. The winery buildings were designed by Cliff May as an homage to the California's early Spanish mission past. The original vineyard land included the To Kalon (A Greek term meaning "the beautiful") vineyard originally established by Napa pioneer H.W. Crabb in 1868. It was the first major winery to be built in Napa Valley in the post-prohibition.
The St. Francis of Assisi statue, on loan to the Robert Mondavi Winery by the Bufano Society of Arts, was designed by sculptor Beniamino Bufano in 1939. The figure of St. Francis stands with his arms stretched straight out on either side, his head bent forward slightly, and his large oval ceramic eyes cast down toward the ground. He is dressed in a long robe with the hood pulled up over his head. The front of his robe is adorned with a colorful apron containing a ceramic mosaic of twenty-nine birds perched on the branches of a large tree. The sculpture rests on an octagonal wood base that has been painted brown. A large wood and glass canopy shelters the sculpture.
Queen Anne's Gate: Westminster
I think that Queen Ann'es Gate is one of the most handsome streets in London. Most of the houses were built circa 1706.
23 Queen Anne's Gate was formerly No.4 Queen Square. The first person to live there (according to rates books) was Mme. Elford. Like several other houses in the street it has a carved canopy door-hood with a carved mask in the centre. Carved masks are also added to the keystones above each window. I've since discovered that this house belongs to Sting.
While I was taking these photos countless tourists walked past, on their way to Birdcage Walk, barely looking at the fantastic Queen Anne's Gate. A French couple asked directions to Downing Street, I said 'Downing Street is famous but this street is beautiful' so they took one photo to shut me up.
