I am really fond of images of windows. I find them quite evocative. This one is especially so.

Sandy Carlson said...

This is wonderful. The colors are joyful, yet I wonder what goes on on the other side of the sash.

Katya said...

A lovely photo that draws one in and allows the imagination to go into overdrive, wondering..pondering...what is on the other side?

Happy WW!

Great shutters, wouldn't it be interesting to know what's behind them. Then again maybe we wouldn't want to know, all the mystery would be gone. Thanks for stopping by my place.

We have four daughters, three blog, and one son, that blogs now and then, he's usually pretty busy. And of course you know OML, he has several blogs that keeps him occupied.

hello david
i am leaving for kolkata this morning.what a coincidence that your blog showed a kol window shutter pic.i think every window is a window of opportunity.to make life full of love and happiness.during my last visit,i visited bow barracks at bowbazar and met a resident and took some pictures.a movie was recently made on the angloindians at bow barracks.

David,
I would be SO honored if you would add me to your blogroll. I enjoy you blog so much and am planning on participating in your provocative blog questions if:
1. the twins give me a moment to think
2. if the twins give me a moment of peace.

Ok, maybe in my next life....

Midnight
one more night without sleepin' -
Watchin'

Green door
what's that secret you're keepin'?
