Lens Artists Photo Challenge #14: Windows +

I guess you might be… one of those lovers of windows and doors? So many of us bloggers are fascinated by – doors and windows. But, not only the window itself is special and worthy of acknowledgement, I think also what/who is standing or sitting by or at the window is important. Maybe you find an interesting something standing or hanging in the window…or perhaps seen through the window!

For this week – Find a favorite window and show us your special choice!


For some years now, I have been fascinated by Poland, and I have found many interesting windows there – I guess they all have…that little story I am looking for:

We are all prisoners, but some of us are in cells with windows and some without.

Khalil Gibran

A breeze, a forgotten summer, a smile, all can fit into a storefront window.

Dejan Stojanovic

There is a window from one heart to another heart.     


The windows of the houses, even if the house is ramshackle, are always beautiful because windows represent light!

Mehmet Murat ildan

It is not possible for a house to own a spirit without owning windows with flowers!

You have the nicest window, you know? None of the others can even compete. It´s not flashy like the others, or bleary, your window gives of this nice, quiet light.

Banana Yoshimoto

Enlarge your windows till you get a window where you can see the whole universe with one look!

  1. Very beautiful post 🙂 I’m also obsessed with windows, the most with my own kitchen window which has the most beautiful view on our town’s little river and the historic town centre. But to me windows in general represent not only light but a frame for a little part of the outside world.

  2. In my post I described your photos as beautiful and soulful. I would like to order a coffee from one of these places and let life just flow while sipping. Agrafka – note made.

  3. […] Someone once said – your eyes are the windows to your soul. Many say so-and-so said so, apparently even Shakespeare said so. It matters little for this week’s challenge as asked for windows… not eyes! However… I enjoy taking window reflection shots… so, you may even spot vague glimpses of me in this gallery. Now… I don’t think you’ll be able to look me in the eye… unless my camera has become the window to my soul! OK… I’ll move on… and leave you with a gallery of bright glass reflections… and the odd view through the window… […]

  4. […] Sun streaming in through the windows in a room in Belfast. Boarded-up windows are painted with portraits in a Belfast alley. Paintings or photos on boarded-up windows was very popular throughout both Irelands. Three different types of ‘window photography’ from the Crumlin Road Gaol (Jail) in Belfast, Ireland. From the exterior of the jail the windows all look like gaping mouths. The medical office in the Jail, eerily lit by a single window. A window looking out to the sea in the medieval castle of Carrickfergus along the Coastal Causeway Route of Ireland, UK.Cobwebs gather in a Kinsale church window in the Republic of Ireland. Eager to meet you, a dog in a car window in Galway. Rainy day view out the window of our ferry to the Aran Island of Inisheer, the Queen of Aran. A window opens onto a tree growing inside the ruins of the former Fort Charles in Kinsale. Looking out the windows of the Dublin Botanical Garden Conservatory.Lace curtains in Johnnie Fox’s Pub just outside of Dublin.A kitchen window with fans installed in Dublin’s Modern Art Gallery. Pastel plastic bags piled up in a window in Dublin. Tempting window displays in a wondrous cheese shop in Dublin.Having a Guinness & Black Current cocktail in the Guinness Storehouse at St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin. More of this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge: Windows.

  5. I really like the little stories connected to each artsy shot here.


    and my favorite – image and quote was this:

      • and I also wanted to add that I enjoyed the feast of pictures. I know there is a time for one image – but your richness here had me come back to soak up more.
        and someone teasingly told me that i had a lot of windows in my post (called it a vast collection and wanted to know if you gave an award for ”most”) and I told them you had 12 pics and so I was not even a runner up –
        but I am glad there are no rules how many or how few we can share – need to let it flow when it flows

      • ” – need to let it flow when it flows”. I like that. I did not intend to post that many windows…but your last half sentence shows what it is all about. So glad you enjoy the concept!

  6. That’s a wonderful assortment of windows, Ann-Christine! I love the ones with the little fence and the kitty, and the featured picture reminds me of display cases 🙂 and makes me imagine the stories of the people inside.

    • So glad you liked them – and the man on the ladder I love too! I hope to see some more interesting windows coming during the week!

    • Janet – when it comes to windows there are so many choices. Maybe I could not stop myself…but my favorite is that first one as well – glad you enjoyed it!

  7. Leya I will comment on your photos later. Regarding the theme – at this point I have no clue so I will have to look through my thoughts to find something this 7 day window of opportunity offers.

    • Abrie, I am sure you will find some clues when you look through your thoughts – or maybe some thoughts when you have figured out the clues…Looking forward to your thoughts on screen.

  8. This is an remarkable collection of interesting windows and great accompanying quotes, Ann-Christine. The first one is a gem, I can’t take me eyes off it. It has a good story.

Halva verket är läsarens - så, vad säger Du? As the second half is the reader's - I'd love to have Your line!
