This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge presented to us by Amy is #79: A Window With A View.
Cover photo: Chinatown, San Francisco California. The window of a Chinatown market shows us a view of edible delights and Muni bus in the reflection.
Chapel of the Transfiguration – Grand Teton National Park
In a small patch of land marked mostly by scraggly brush sits a small log chapel built in 1925 to serve settlers so they would not have to take a long ride into Jackson for Sunday service. A window behind the pulpit frames the magnificent Grand Teton mountains.
Very few of my images represent inside looking out. Most are views from the outside looking into a colorful or interesting display.
Virginia City, Nevada
Virginia City is a 19th century silver mining town, located just east of the Sierra Nevada. We visited Virginia City in October and the windows of the historic shops were decorated for Halloween.
North Beach, San Francisco, CA.
San Francisco’s Little Italy is noted for its bounty of Italian food.
Chinatown, San Francisco, CA.
Grant Street in Chinatown is where the tourists go for souvenirs and assorted kitsch. The windows of the Grant Street shops are colorful if nothing else.
One block west of Grant Street is Stockton Street with colorful, vibrant markets.
I love stained glass and whenever I visit a historic church I always photograph that magnificent art. Stained glass has no view in or out, the window is a view. Below are images of stained glass.
Windows with an inside view and an outside view.
Part of the fun of photographing window is the use of reflections.
Windows Without Glass
Natural frames without the glass.
“The eyes are the window to the soul,” goes the famous quote.

Nice set, Paulie!
Thank you Eliza.
Nice pics as usual
Thank you again for visiting.
Beautiful variety, Paulie! Love the old time candy and…what is a Mudi? A breed(?) I have never heard of.
Thank you so much. A Mudi is indeed a dog breed albeit a rare one. They are herding dogs first bred in Hungary. Also I apologize for not getting your name right Ann-Christine.
No worries, a name is just…a name. “What’s in a name…” as Shakespeare wrote… I will have to look up Mudi some more, it is not in my dog books of species. I prefer books to Google, but new and special dog breeds constantly pop up. I guess if we do not have them registered in Sweden, they don’t exist in my books.
Fun, colorful, and various selections of window views. Windows with an inside view and an outside view is a cool shot. I love two captures of the eyes of the dog and the mustang.
Happy to see another LAPC entry from you, Paulie! 🙂
Thank you Amy. I like doing those inside/outside reflection shots. I guess I’m kind of a sucker for an image of a reflection whether it’s in a puddle, a lake or a window.
I hesitated for a long while with the LAPC. I was intimidated a bit by the procedure of pingbacks and tags and all. And I still don’t know if I’m getting it right.
I thought it was confusing when I first joined the challenge theme a few years ago. WP is not making it easier… Ignore it, if you have already known about it.
1. Pingback: For example, if you make a link of my blog site correctly for this window view theme, it will show the pingback on my comment section of my blog site which makes it easier for my followers to see when they come to my site.
For this theme you use my share and connection URL site: https://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2020/01/11/a-window-with-a-view/. But, you don’t want to use the link from the Reader, eg. https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/12952901/posts/72438.
2. WP Reader: When you subscribe a blog site, it will show his/her most recent published post on your Reader. You also can search other bloggers. That is when the Tagging will help. If you tag “Lens Artists”, when you and other bloggers do a search on the Reader site by entering “Lens Artists Window View”, the one that was tagged will show on your screen.
The search function is on your left hand side of your Reader page. Do you use Reader?
3. Tagging: It is located on the right hand side of the page where your make your post (where you click preview, save, update, publish…). Tag is below the “Category”. As an example, for your “A window with a view”, you want to tag “Lens Artists”, but you also can add window, food, San Francisco… to broaden the search. So, if I search San Francisco, I may see your sit there.
Hope this helps. If not, feel free to let me know.
Well done. Some of my favorite photos are reflections in windows.
Thank you Ali. I can’t seem to pass up reflection shots.
And why would you? They are so wonderful
Great variety. Well done.
Dried grapes, dog, and horse are favorites, BTW. Nice.
Thank you John. Those would be my choices. After all dogs rule, I love riding and grapes become wine
Ha ha. Yup!
Nice, Paulie. Wasn’t expecting the chickens, though! lol 🙂
Thank you. BTW it’s very tasty chicken.
Teriffic set Paulie. Loved your inside-out shot
Thank you Tina. Sorry for the late reply. Your comment got sent to spam. I have to confess that the inside outside shot in Grand Teton needed some cleanup. The corners of the window were dotted with dead flies – ugh.
beautiful photos!!! and that peking duck! 🙂
Thank you so much. Yes Hing Lung Meats is my go to place for getting duck or barbecued pork to take home.
