Windows, I can’t resist them! Every school report which complained of incessant daydreaming was really just the story of that term’s window, and the glimpse it gave me of life outside a classroom that too rarely excited my imagination.
Whether I’m gazing – longingly, avidly – out at the world through them, or trying to peep in, to see other’s worlds, they’ve always drawn me.
Here are a couple I rather like, inspired by Jake’s challenge this week:
An Arcade of Windows
14 Venetian Windows
The Window in the Wall
you are having fun finding these … super!!!
I am, rather! Beats doing the ironing, Christine 🙂
Thanks Lousie – I do think a window is improved when you can see what’s through it! 🙂
Stunning photo’s for the entry TWG. Funny thing is when I pass a house and in I can almost “sense” the atmosphere that’s in that house. I am weird hey? LOL!
Thanks for sharing these beauties! 🙂 *hugs*
Those windows definitely look like they’d be more fun to daydream out of than a school yard one 😛
Hmmmm … I was always a bit of a daydreamer through the window at school, too!
Through a window you can imagine almost anything. Through these windows, you have shared, you can imagine everything!
Beautifully said, beautifully photographed!
they'[re all beautiful. when you mentioned school windows, i was instantly transported back to the first grade, and i was gazing across the room and out the wall of windows. i had never really realized that even as a six year old, i had that feeling of wanderlust! i wonder why it calls some of us so strongly?????
I share your passion!
Very pretty shots! Thank you!
Great photos 🙂 I think as soon as mankind moves form caves into huts “needs a window over there” might have been one of the first house renovation projects ever 🙂
A beautiful mini-gallery. I bet you have another hundred, at least, that didn’t make the cut. 😉
Very unique view and thanks for sparking the idea in my mind as well 🙂
Oh good – sparks are such wonderful things! 🙂
It’s the hints and half seen things beyond that make windows so compelling isn’t it? I’ve recently realised that a lot of my favourite artworks are also of sights seen through windows.
Yes! As with a lot of things, if you come to think about it! 🙂
Perfectly framed shots Meredith. Love the view of the Afendiko. We never made it to Mistras.
my soul was always like a bird escaping through the window …
School windows, Chemistry and Physics- I’m shuddering at the thought! That first shot is an absolute gem, Meredith. I so want to gaze through them. Ironing? Oh don’t! The son was home some of the time that we weren’t- a recipe for lots of ironing. Thanks for cheering me up this morning. 🙂
Impossible to pick a favourite from these daydream shots!
Windows, and doors – two great themes. Mine continue to grow . They are never “justa” window or door – they have stories in them – I gotta do a book.
Lynne, I think a book of doors (or windows) would be a fantastic framework – just imagine the stories you could invent (or research!).
I agree with Lynne, there have stories in them. Wonderful selections, Meredith!
I was always the window-gazing daydreamer as a child…and that hasn’t changed! Absolutely beautiful.
