SPC: Look Inside the Window

by Sara on February 10, 2014

I often take pictures of windows. There’s something about a window that makes me want to look inside it.

Actually, I know it’s not polite to do this in real life. It could possibly get me in trouble.

However, looking inside a window is your photo challenge today, but I promise you will not get into trouble:~)

After all, this is a blog and not real life.

Story Photo Challenge

Below, I’ve given you three pictures of windows.

Pick a window. (Please let me know which picture you picked.)

Now, step up to it and look inside.

Questions to consider:

  1. Are you looking into the future, the past or the present?
  2. What is the first thing you see?
  3. Is it human, animal, mechanical or alien?
  4. If the window looks into a room, what’s inside it?
  5. Which of the three windows do you like the best and why?

Remember, you can pick the number of questions you want answer. Choosing only one is a perfectly acceptable option:~)

Window One

window2-480

Window Two

Window Three

I actually like window 2 the best – although they are all wonderful, full of possibilities. It looks abandoned and it makes me wonder what life was like inside that window at one time.

@ Lynn — That’s true about window 2. It does look mysterious and makes you wonder what’s inside. I actually don’t know. I just took a picture of the window. I think it was in Apalachicola and one of the building on the water.

Window one reminds me of Bruges in Belgium. They all seemed to have many layers, depending on the weather, ie if it was really hot the inner and outer windows would open right back and only the ironwork would be there.

So inside…well I think elderly widows (only older people could live near the centre) working on their lace making or sewing up something delicate on a Singer sewing machine, radio on and a cup of tea to hand, oh and a little truffle, why not? There is chat and laughter and the beautiful comfortable silences that only really old friends can have….Oh and there is a wood stove, its not that warm ( hence all the windows closed)…..

@ Carrie — I actually like the window as well. It’s makes me see an older couple sitting at a wooden dining table having a meal…perhaps they’re having potatoes they’ve grown in their own garden, like someone I know:~)

Hi Sara! I was spring cleaning my blog the other day and it was lovely to see your blog still going strong when I clicked on your gorgeous wee avatar; such a chic, expressive face even with the shades on! Before I go off and have a wander through the tumbleweed town that is the blogging world I used to hang around in, I just thought I’d say hello and wish you well.

I used to have a collection of prints and images of women at windows and took dozens of photos of windows, shutters, lace curtains and balconies when I lived in Greece; they fascinate me, and say so much about our humanity. These three are beautiful, but they all make me a wee bit sad; bars or mesh on each, hinting at the fears of those inside or telling of an age where homes are not always havens.

Best wishes ~ Janice

PS I’ve tried to link to an old post that has a window, to keep in with your theme. The image has disappeared, but I think it’s at the bottom and also under a link.

@ Janice — I’m so glad you clicked over and came to visit. I’ll return the favor. I know it’s hard to believe how many years I’ve been doing this.

I send my wishes to you, as well and thank you for stopping by. I’d love to see that collection. I imagine lots of good stories could be written about the women in the windows. Perhaps I can convince you to share one for my Story Photo Challenge posts????

Well, you KNOW I would see an alien in window # 3, probably one of the aliens who contacted Ursula the cow. It looks like he/she has tried to wrap up in black cloth as a disguise, but those eyes give away the non-earthly origin. Creepy, Sara! Is this place near you? I would watch out if I were you :) There may be a lot more of them lurking about, you know. :)

@ Jean — That’s so funny. That’s what I thought about the lights in the window:~) It does look like an alien and maybe you’re right…it’s one of the Ursula aliens. Actually, in real life, this picture was taken some place in Switzerland, but I imagine the aliens might live there, too…who knows?

Thanks for the laugh, my friend:~)
