Your title a neat little tongue-twister! First one; great reflection; the second one grabs me; love seeing the tracery of branches through that one. Antiques store offers the come-on-in appeal with the lights aglow. Nice series John.
The welsh word for window is ffenester!
I have never heard the word "fenestration," but I do remember the "defenestration of Prague" from history classes. Do you remember that?The sunset reflection is terrific.
Good show, John. I, too, am drawn to windows and have collected a bunch of photos of them. Jim
I like the way the old glass in some of the windows distorts the reflections. The tree branch is beautifully framed in the ruin pic. It looks rather like stained glass with the dark outlines. And as to fenestration - C'est comme en francais, n'est-ce pas?
learned a new word....my favorite is romantic at sunset--
I love your window shots ..its amazing the difference between looking at a window and looking through it.xx
I love your window photographs, I've always been drawn to paintings looking out of windows... there's a universal fascination isn't there? Jane x
Love them all John, have a special fancy for the red phone box reflections through!
I like the rummage sale!!!! Always up for some antiques!!!
Fascinating pics John - love the sunset one.
Winderful wondows. I love them too. And what a variety you've found.
Some interesting effects there, I like the reflections through the phone box windows and of course my favourite is the ruin:)
These are wonderful... I like the descriptions you give, each window is like a person with its own character. I especially like the window/view of the ruins.
Wonderful collection of windows .John .... All different shapes sizes and styles ... My favourite being "regarding ruins" ..... Beautiful!
I love your series of windows here. They truly are fascinating in different shapes, sizes and reflections.Fenestration, eh? Don't be surprised if you see that word used on my blog. :))
Thanks for commenting everyone, I love hearing from you all. I think that 'fenestration' and 'ffenester' and, for that matter,the French 'fenetre', come from the Latin 'fenestra'. 'Window' comes from the Danes or Vikings. (I think!)
Fab series of window pics. Makes me want to go out right now and find windows!!
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
