A Word a Week/ A lingering look at windows

DSCF5175 (640x486)

I love windows.  There are so many possibilities with the reflections.  I have always been fascinated with the way the sunrises and sunsets are reflected in the windows.  This one was another of the photos I took the same night as the sunset I showed yesterday.

002 (640x487)

Please excuse the quality of this photo.  I took this early one morning from the car with the sunrise behind me, reflected in the windows of the school building.  So the light was really poor.  The sunrise that morning was amazing and my daughter and I had our phones out and stopped every so often to take photos. I had the brush affect without even trying.

Here are some great posts for the challenge:

Window Reflections

A lingering Look at Windows shows a reflection of plant life in our garden.  That orange tree is loaded with really juicy mouth watering oranges.  There is nothing like going out into the garden to pick fruit right of the tree.

A Lingering Look at Windows: Week 26

IMG_4594 (640x462)

Good morning from a cold Hastings morning.

I was going through my photos and found this image of the window reflections at a local pizza parlour.  I loved the different lights and how they reflected back in the window.  I was with my daughter who rolled her eyes when I got out the cellphone. You can see the price lists also reflected in the window.

As you can see I had fun with the editing.

Sunset through the window (640x486)

I haven’t post for this challenge for a while so it is time to get back into it all.

While staying at my parents I was fascinated by the sunset through this large window and the patterned curtains.  I also love the reflection bouncing off my car as well.

Here is Dawn’s post to find out more about this challenge.

A lingeringLook at Windows Week 18


Another week and another window.  I found this window while out walking one day.  I loved the way it reflected the bushes around it while seeming to be in darkness.

A Lingering Look at Windows #17


Last night we had a good sunset but I was struck by how it was reflected in the windows of our house.


The window frames made a good frame so that the windows became pictures of their own.

A Lingering Look at Windows: Week 9 – Art Deco – Look Up, Look Down



Good morning from a foggy Hastings.

Where is the time going.  We are up to week 9 for Dawn’s challenge  for The Day After. As some of the photos are looking up at windows they can also go for Debbie’s challenge at Travel with Intent – Look Up, Look Down Week 28,

Continuing with my Art Deco theme this week I am focusing on the windows in the Art Deco centre of Napier.  They are so decorative and colourful.  I edited these with the Pacific Filter in the FX Photostudio Pro as I wanted to get a vintage  feel to them, appropriate to the Art Deco era. But also they remind me of the colours of Miami when I visited there 20 years ago.

There are quite a few.  It was a matter of where to start and when to stop.  It is a photographers paradise.

A lingering look at windows Week # 8


Good morning from a hot muggy Hastings.  I hope everyone is keeping warm and dry in those parts of the world that is determined to keep winter around.  So take care.

Here is week # 8 of Dawn’s challenge at The Day After.  In keeping with Art Deco week here are some windows of a couple of buildings in Hastings.  I took these with my IPhone a couple of weeks ago and edited using Snapseed.


What I love about Art Deco is that buildings had to look good, not just being functional.  See how even the support structures here had some form of decoration.


Here you can see the reflection of the water feature in this window.  Don’t you just love the light fitting.

A Lingering Look at Windows: Week 7



Time for Dawn’s challenge at The Day After

Last week I showed the sunset mirrored in the windows on the outside.  So this week I have gone for the sunrise showing through the windows on the inside.  Please excuse the dirty windows.  I think it just makes it more artistic.  My excuse anyway.  

Here are a couple of blogs to check out.

A Lingering Look at Windows. Week #6


It is hard to  believe that we are up to week 6 of this year.  I swear time goes by faster, the older you get.

I have taken quite a few photos of the reflection of the sunsets in these windows.

Here are some photos of the sunset.



The windows are at the front of the house and the biggest window is tinted so that it acts like a mirror for the sunset.

Thanks for visiting.
