Windows

On the first Tuesday of each month we meet here to share photos of windows we have spotted. There have been some fascinating entries, I’m really enjoying seeing them. Recent or archive posts are all welcome, just leave a link in the comments.

On a recent walk to the tiny wooden St Catherine’s Chapel, Holworth:

as we sat on the grass we were serenaded by what I think was a Goldfinch in the weather-beaten trees. We couldn’t see the bird well enough to identify it, but I have a wonderful free App called ‘Chirp’ that has taught me to identify birdsong and I checked it with that – what do you think? Song of a Goldfinch?

 

On the path down to the beach we noticed that this little cottage had been spruced up with new windows and a new thatched roof, shame they haven’t removed the horrid pebbledash on the walls.thatch

I’m looking forward to seeing a window on your piece of the world. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. A wonderful collection of ramble window images Sandra. I do miss your weekly photo challenge, what happened?
    Anyway here is a link to a window post I did after our New Zealand trip in 2016. Quite a few Aussies are emigrating there at the moment.

    • Sorry for the delay in my reply Denis, your comment was stuck in Spam, I hope that won’t happen again.
      So good to know you enjoyed the weekly photo challenge. I had been doing a weekly photo challenge for a few years and the commitment was feeling a bit heavy, So it changed into a monthly challenge, with a different subject each month.
      This year – just the one subject. I like how that gives a focus and encourages me to look for and notice windows that I would probably miss without the challenge.
      Thank you for your entry – every window tells a story and your post has a great story attached to it.
