Peeking through windows...so many possibilities. What lies beyond? What's just out of reach?
Tiny windows, just big enough to peek through...did I get mail today? No one stuffs these anymore, but they evoke memories of college, and hoping, hoping, hoping, someone had sent something my way. Look at them, lined up like so many soldiers waiting to do their duty.
Old abandonded windows lure me in, but so do shop windows. One set hints of broken dreams. Who sat by them and dreamed...a child wanting to be outside, but miserably doing her homework? The other set offers promises of things to come, beautiful new shiney objects waiting to create new stories.
And, as Kat writes, in "Exploring with a Camera,"sometimes windows reveal things that are not visible otherwise. As I peered through this window, I saw trees with twinkling lights and sleds mounted in a row along a wall. It wasn't until I viewed my shots at home, that I realized that I had captured a gorgeous reflections of the windows behind me!
So many windows...church windows, glorious stained glass windows, windows behind rockers on a porch, children with noses plastered against windows. I've captured them all, and many more.
I captured this particular set last weekend in Ellicott City, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
