Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Through A Window

Through the Window

I do a bit of photography through windows. Sometimes I’m in a moving vehicle and can’t help myself even though I know the pictures will probably be bad. Sometimes it’s because of the weather and sometimes I am trying to photograph an animal or bird that I don’t want to frighten.

Here are some views looking out the window.

I love interesting shop window displays although they are not always easy to photograph because of the reflections.

I love the panoramic views from an Observation deck like the one at the KL Tower in Kuala Lumpur.

I don’t have a new photo today so here is one of my favourites from last year. I took it for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge originally because I liked how clearly the ship was reflected in the window. The ship? Ovation of the Seas of course.

Windows on the World

I found that I had a few pictures of windows amongst my collections so I’ll start off with one I took solely because I thought it was an unusual place to find such a large window. It is in the ladies toilet on Deck 11 of Explorer of the Seas. Truly a room with a view. I’ve included a couple of other seagoing windows. Portholes (including ours) and the Bridge viewing window where you can see the officers going about their business.

Still on the international theme here is a window in the ruins of Holyrood Abbey in Edinburgh, Scotland back in 1990. It was hard to get a good photo as half the building was in deep shade but it was one of those occasions when I knew I would never come back again so I took it anyway. I love the shape of this window and could imagine it with stained glass panels like some of the other old churches I saw there.

Closer to home here are some¬†shop windows in Oatlands, Tasmania. An antique shop in the High Street and Pinocchio, who I spotted in the window of a workshop, you can just see him in the window of the pink building on the right. I took this photo in 2008. I don’t know if he is still there.
