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.
