windows

I always enjoy reading Kat Sloma's exploring with the camera series. 
The most recent one looks at the joys of photographing windows.
So, I took this first one today and the others I found when looking through some old photos.

Some reasons why windows can be so interesting include:
 the shapes and lines,


the way the light shines through & what you can see on the other side. 

Interestingly shaped windows can be used as a background,

 and windows can be part of a repeating pattern.

That's my exploration of windows for the moment, 
you can see more here.

  2. Lovely window images - my favorite is the last one. The modern architecture, the repeating pattern of the windows and those balaconies, backdropped by the lovely building that reminds me of mother-of-pearl. Really great urban abstract.

  4. Leanne, These are lovely. I especially love the third one - the way the light crosses the window sill is beautiful!

  5. Great shots. I especially love the barn with two missing panes and the shot underneath it with light and reflection.

  6. Fabulous examples! I really like the idea of the window as a background, and I love the one looking through the old window. The light, the texture and the interesting subject on the other side all draw me in. Thanks for sharing in Exploring with a Camera!

  10. A lovely series of window shots but that round one is very eye-catching. The window looking out is great too with the play of light and dark.

  12. Love this post Leanne. Forgive my tardiness in getting here, I've been having trouble reaching your blog, along with a few others....a weird blogger quirk.
    Your images are wonderful. I like them all, with special affection for the one off in the distance and focus on the cogged wheel. Brilliant shot!
