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:
Greenhouse shading creating pattern and atmosphere at Kingston Lacy
A window lighting the stairwell at Greenway House
And little Miss M painitng, looking out of my sitting room window a few weeks ago.
I’m excited to see the windows you are sharing with us this month!
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
Another view catching shadows on the inside
and in contrast,
the windows from inside the old stables at the lost village of Tyneham
seen on a recent visit with Master R and Little Miss M.
I sat and crocheted at the picnic table outside while the children played a wonderful game of make-believe in the stables and barns
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.
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.
I was surprised to see so much English signage in Hurghada.
What windows you have found to share with us this month?
I’m looking forward to seeing them. Please leave a link in the Comments below.
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
I hope we will be able to wander through this space later in the year when the house is open for viewing.
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.
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 window
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.
A window on your world – or keeping the curtains cosily drawn; one photo, a group of photos, current or archive – all are welcome!

So here we go again: I wandered round my village last night and got some very blurry photos, but I kinda like them
Must get myself a tripod if I’m going to take photos at night again
They look a bit drunk! Very appropriate for New Year’s Eve.
