Keep creating new windows from which to look at your world. Never accept your current view of the world as the only view. Let new awareness help you to alter your view and motivate you to be the force of change in your life. – Don Shapiro
A window can stand for so many things… and windows are attractive to any photographer. This time, Amy’s inspirational choice is A Window With a View. My windows offer very different ideas of a window view – depending on the perspective, who you are, where you are and maybe how you are.
Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.
– Edith Wharton
Windows hold a different dream for each of us.
If you want the people to understand you, invite them to your life and let them see the world from your window!
You have the nicest window, you know? None of the others can even compete. It´s not flashy like the others, or bleary, your window gives of this nice, quiet light.
– Banana Yoshimoto
Open the window of your mind. Allow the fresh air, new lights and new truths to enter.
– Amit Ray
These windows were found in Italy (Rome), Georgia (Tbilisi), Iceland, Poland, Sweden, Bhutan and Scotland. (My own old favorite, is in the header here. )

What beautiful windows and views. My favourite is also the header, stunning.
Thank you, Wendy! Had to do a bit of stretching this time!
It was tough, wasn’t it.
These images are so unique – such beautiful light and detail. Unusual too – especially that set of 3!
So glad you enjoyed them, OLU! That set had some contrasts at least
I knew that last photo had to be Scotland before I had even read your words. Where was it taken?
I think around Scarborogh somewhere – some years ago.
I really like that last image.
Thank you, Amy! It belonged to a lovely old abbey
Hi leya – love the variety and way you were able to give us depth so lightly – if that makes sense …
And smiled with this : your window gives of this nice, quiet light.
Ah! Thank you!
So many beautiful windows and inspirational quotes, Leya! Especially love the one giving a view of a green forest – just wonderful! 😀
So happy you liked them, Sarah! It rseems the forest view is popular!
I like them all, especially the first one with the dog and the one with the distorted reflections. What draws me most in the first one are the vibrant colors and texture. I love the blending of warm/cool colors in the wall and how they mirror the colors found in the reflections in the glass.
Thank you for a thoughtful comment – I believe your analysis is relevant! Warm and cold often make an appealing mix.
All very nice shots, Ann-Christine. Of course my favorite is the top. There’s a dog, yes, but I also like the beautiful reflections in the door and windows.
Thank you, Steve – the cold and warm usually is a lovely mix.

Gorgeous windows, A-C. I love the reflection in your first shot. Beautiful. Your travels and your photos always show me new places I’ve never been, which is always inspiring! I always appreciate the ”windows on your world.”
Thank you, Patti – and I say the same about you and your ”windows” of new places!
Can’t remember if I ever mentioned that window originally meant ‘wind eye’.
I know you did ♥
I love your windows and the header is especially wonderful with the colors in the reflections.
Glad you like them, Anne! And, that header shot is one of my favorites as well – I guess it is the cold and warm colours together that does it for me.
Beautiful images and windows Ann-Christine, I especially love the old and atmospheric ones from Tblisi 💜 xxx
Thank you so much, Xenia!
Wonderful windows and views! 🙂
So glad you liked them, Ana! Thank you!
These are beautiful – I love the barn best!!
Thank you, Nora! That barn is popular!
Beautiful images Leya.
I managed to catch one little dog too! What would we do without our furry friends?
Excellent variety. Love the climbing wall and woods from the barn, to name a few.
Glad you liked them, John! The barn window and view seems to be popular so far.
Very nice windows Leya!
Thank you, Tatiana!
Windows and view were beautifully captured,AC! Wonderful selections! 💖
Ha, ha… see? I was right 😀
Thank you very much!
Thank you, Amy – interesting and challenging challenge!
What looks like a barn window is my favourite. The lines of the trees and the edges/lines of the barn work well together.
Thank you, Suzanne – a forest seen through its ancestors?
These are all wonderful, A-C! I like what you did with reflections, too.
I am happy with your comment and so glad you enjoyed the post! Reflections are the windows’ own view, aren’t they?
That’s a good way of looking at it.
So many ways to look at the world, Ann Christine. And maybe the greatest gift, not judging 🙂 🙂
I love them all A-C 🙂
You are very kind, Brian, thank you.♥
Some beautiful choices for this one Ann-Christine. You DO get around my friend!! My favorite of this set is the Bhutan (at least that’s the one I think it is!) but they’re all wonderful. Clever to put a link to your header as we never see them in the reader.
Thank you, Tina – I tried some thinking around the concept, and ended up with so many possibilities. The view is still there in all the windows… And Bhutan, the window holds the view, doesn’t it?
I recognise Kyrko Mosse!
Yes! I think you maybe photographed the same view?
Yes, I did!
All very nice!
Glad you like them, Chava!
All are great but I love the first one with the balcony!
Thank you! It was amazing how he sat there contemplating – what a view!
Lots of interesting window images, Ann-Christine. The frame within a frame with the trees is eye-catching. 🙂
Thank you so much, Jane. A forest seen through its ancestors?
