View From Ca' d'Zan

In 1925, John and Mabel Ringling built Ca' d'Zan, their winter home, in Sarasota, Florida. It's a mishmash of styles inspired by their travels through Europe. The view is the best part. Ca' d'Zan stands right on the edge of Sarasota Bay. I like this photo of the mansion's partly-opened windows. The tinted panes and metal gridwork frame and tilt the sea and sky. Even in this slightly jumbled state, it’s a reminder of why so many people are lured to Florida in the winter.
