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. ūüôā

Windows

Welcome to our Photographic Monthly Meet Up when we share photos of windows old and new on the first Tuesday each month. Leave a link to a recent or archive post in the comments.

Cerne Abbas

The first is from the ruined remains of the Abbey at Cerne Abbas. You can read more about the history of the building here.

Another old lattice window, from inside a National Trust property, but I can’t remember which one.

For complete contrast I’m remembering my holiday in Nevis, the Caribbean in April 2017

Oh Bliss!

I’m excited to see what windows you have found this month.

Welcome to the Monthly Meet-Up Photo Challenge, posted on the first Tuesday each month. The theme of  WINDOWS is running throughout the year.

To join in please leave a link to one of your posts which includes a photo of a window. The post can be current or archive – sometimes it is fun to look back through your photos and old posts and rediscover them.

Three from me today:

I’m excited to see the windows you are sharing with us this month!

Windows: Greenway and Tyneham

Greenhouse windows

Looking through the wibbly-wobbly glass of the magnificent greenhouse at Greenway House back in March.

The greenhouse sits in a peaceful walled garden looking onto the croquet lawn

Greenway House, Devon

Another view catching shadows on the inside

Have you spotted any windows of interest?

We meet here on the first Tuesday of every month to share photos of windows we have found.

Whether ancient or modern, each window tells a story.

Leave a link in the comments, any time this month, to a new or archive post – all welcome.

Egyptian Windows

Egypt, El Gouna

Ooof! Don’t you just love the terracotta against that amazing sky.

For my last post about my trip to Egypt, I bring you some Egyptian windows

In the background of the photo below you can see one of those abandoned building projects that punctuated street scenes everywhere we went

We went in search of an art gallery, but the only one we found was closed.

Egypt, hurghada

I was surprised to see so much English signage in Hurghada.

I’m looking forward to seeing them. Please leave a link in the Comments below.

Forde Abbey Windows

Hellooo!!stone mullioned windows

Here we are on the first Tuesday of the Month , our Monthly Meet-up Photo Challenge, with another collection of WINDOW photographs. To join in please leave a link to your photos in the comments. Your photos can be any interpretation of the subject, and can be your latest photos or archive photos and posts – all welcome.

Forde Abbey on the Somerset/Dorset border in the south of England is the perfect place if you are looking for a collection of windows to photograph. Join them on Instagram to see some wonderful photos of the gardens.

The photos above are the windows to the Orangery, we couldn’t go in in February, but peeped through the windows to see the citrus trees inside

orangery

I hope we will be able to wander through this space later in the year when the house is open for viewing.

in February

Til then we had the outside views to enjoy.

But we could go into the Chapel where, behind the Rood Screen, there was a delicate tree flowering in the window – is that a Mimosa?

but this Window at the other end of the Chapel stole the show

especially with that blue sky beaming through.

I’m looking forward to seeing the windows you have spied this month.

Windows

Here we are again at the first Tuesday of the month and time to share our WINDOW photos.

We had snow here, in the South of England, last Friday and this was the view from my bedroom windowsnowy view

It is really difficult to adequately describe the joy of sitting in my cosy bed, crocheting rainbows for my granddaughter (Big Sis, aged 8 – yes she chose the Rainbow Amanzi) with Radio 4 playing The Book of the Week: Silence

I still get a warm fuzzy glow remembering the sheer pleasure, delight and gratitude for all that has brought me to this place of peace and joy.

Life has had it’s tumultuous ups and downs and in the darkest times I used to dream of a scene like this, a feeling like this. Dreams really do come true, feels good to acknowledge that and know that if things go wambly again in the future, I can always look back to this for comfort and to realign those dreams.

I’m really looking forward to seeing the WINDOWS you have captured with your camera this month and perhaps the thoughts or stories that go with them.

Just leave a link in the Comments below.
