Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

“Windows” has many meanings:

1. An opening constructed in a wall or roof that functions to admit light or air to an enclosure and is often framed and spanned with glass mounted to permit opening and closing.

This classic Bhutanese window reveals the care and attention to detail by highly skilled artisans.

2. An opening that resembles a window in function or appearance.

3. The area or space immediately behind a window, especially at the front of a shop.

Parisian windows are a delight!

4. A means of access or observation

Don’t we all love to gaze out of the windows of a train or plane …truly offering us a window on the passing scenery.

5. An interval of time during which an activity can or must take place

window between earthquakes in Christchurch NZ

We were in Christchurch in January 2011, between the two big earthquakes that virtually destroyed the city centre. Here the window of an empty shop (unsafe after the September 2010 quake) tells a simple message and reflects the beautiful old buildings of New Regent Street. This whole street was badly damaged in the February 2011 quake. The reflected jeweller’s shop Petersens now operates from the suburb of Riccarton.

These are my offerings for “windows” …. I am sure there will be many more interpretations.

Here are a few:
