Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Windows

This week, Ann-Christine asks us to share images featuring windows. In some cases, they invite us to enjoy what is on the other side. At times, they show us a place we can never go. A window can invite us to another world or make us content to be exactly where we are. You can read the entire challenge post here.

The opening image features a window that allows us to view into a large shopping mall. From the viewpoint of the person in the window, he can see the San Antonio River Walk. Is he thinking he’d rather be where we are? Maybe he’s immersed in his phone conversation and is oblivious to the outside environment and needs only a sturdy support to lean upon.

At first glance, the image above appears to be about the pink boa and hat. The window has it’s own story to tell with the red light inviting the lonely to take some comfort there (borrowing some words from a Simon and Garfunkel song.) The image was captured in a bedroom exhibit at the Brothel Museum above a bar in Skagway, Alaska.


Windows are transparent yet they often reflect the environment around them. These window displays hold artistic creations made from different colored coffee beans in a coffee shop on a cruise ship. That’s easy to tell, even for those who weren’t there to take the photograph.

My final selection for this week’s challenge features window washers working high on a tall building with glass walls. It appears they did such a good job on the wall facing us that we can see right through the building to  the sky behind it. This Nashville office building sits next to the Ryman Auditorium, a Nashville historic place and original home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my challenge entries, and thanks for a great topic, Ann-Christine.
