Windows are wonderful.  You can see other spaces/places/subjects through them.  Even if you are looking out through a window onto a brick wall or air shaft, make it worthwhile:look at the  brick patterns or find that "shaft" of light. Many times I've examined seemingly simple or boring walls.  The longer you look, the more you may see.
There are other windows.  Those look out onto vistas of great beauty or, conversely, scenes of destruction.  The day I went shopping at Lord & Taylor on NYC's 5th Avenue, I found a window that presented an historic view.  Imagine the days when many of the buildings on 5th Avenue looked like this:

Art genre: Sepia architectural detail/art photograph with color

Photography tip: Windows are great subjects because they frame a second subject!

Location: 5th Avenue, NYC


  1. I like the way the window is both frame for the building and subject of the photo. Your processing is spot on and gives the image an aura of antiquity too. Bravo Ellen!

  2. You both make me glad to do what I do! Coming from two pros, I'm honored!

  4. Cor'd spelling. A cheer from an amateur also! To see these glimpses others may pass by is a gift. You capture is to elegantly.

  5. I still don't know how to spell; SO elegantly.
