Windows: A Photo Essay

I often find myself enthralled by windows. Windows are gateways to ‘another’ world, yet serve as barriers, too. It is like being in a place that is so near yet so far away, if you view windows in this way.

It may also be either one or the other – windows can let you connect to the outside, while staying safe inside. This is more like it for me, most times.

Or — you may perhaps see windows as a boundary between you — and the world out there.

Here is a series of photos of a window at home taken from slightly different angles, and at various times of the day. I was hoping to catch the subtle changes in hues and shades of the cloudy sky above.

“People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” –

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
