Window on the World

I have always looked out of windows. In fact I wish I had a collection of all the places I have been and the pictures from those windows. There is something very simple and yet profound about recording the here and now, as you contemplate the world from your window on it. Mashable posted a collection of 50 pictures from around the world that were taken from a window. Here are mine.


This is a view at night from my dining room window to the apartments at the bottom of the garden. The picture is a little shaky, but I often muse about the lives of the people there.


From a train window, I took this picture of the marble mountains in Carrera Italy. I remember when I read The Agony and the Ecstasy, the marble for The David came from Carrera.


Charlevoix, Quebec taken across the St. Lawrence from my hotel room window. I plan to go there some day for the quality of the light.


These are icicles from the eaves taken from a bedroom window. - a little sparkle in winter!


This is the view from the dining room window in summer. It's an escape!!



I was fascinated by the trains. This is Port Arthur (Thunder Bay) Ontario from my hotel room window.


From my car window in the parking lot at work, in the pouring rain.

I have more, but I will save them for another post. A camera says so much about you. You select the views that seem important to you at the time. I think that I have written a post about all of these.

What do you see from your windows?

Have a great day!!

  1. What a great theme idea. I think I will tell my daughter and she can start while she's young... as for me, well, I guess it's never too late :)

  3. My neighbour loves to daydream stark naked in front of his window, in full view of the street and...my window. I hope that it says more about him than about me...

  4. Another set of windows you might like to explore is the windows to the soul. You have to be brave to take pictures of people close enough to get the inner image.
