This week the WordPress photo challenge is something I have always really liked. It’s window. As soon as I saw the word I was excited; there are so many options with a word like that. I think back and realize I’ve shown you lots of different windows in previous blogs. Here are a few I remember off the top of my head.
There was a blog about Washington DC last spring where I showed you all kinds of windows.
There was a window in my blog about the family farm.
I used the reflection in a window for a previous photo challenge,intended to represent ‘inside.’
And of course not too long ago I asked you what was outside your window.
So I was a bit stumped about where to go to find a window I’d never shared with you before. As you know I like nothing better than to go on a little road trip looking for a photo, but the weather here is less than perfect and the roads aren’t perfect either, so I’ll have to settle for something close to home.
There’s a village cafe in the next town over. Sometimes I drive to work though the town and notice the warm welcoming light shining through it’s front window. So this morning I drove over to see what might be photographed. And I ended up with this:
You notice the warm light first, but if you look carefully, through the picture window, you might see the waitress in white taking an order, or a woman in a booth holding her face in her hands. Perhaps she’s reading the morning paper, or maybe she’s contemplating her coffee. Windows often allow part of the story to emerge while leaving the rest of it up to our imagination.
Go to the WordPress link above and see what other window entries have been submitted. I think you’ll find several you like. I liked this one and this one and this one, last time I looked. There are many more now.
And look again outside your own window. I bet the view has changed some since I last asked you about it.
