Through a glass brightly

I think views out through windows are some of the most framed views of the world we have.  They are constrained by the architecture of the window - and only allow you to see what the designer of the window wants you to see.  So a view from a window is no more natural in that sense than the view in a painting.

I think photographs are equally constrained  - we move to the left or the right to remove flag poles, litter bins and other photographers!  We are left with a framed image - just like a view through a window.

I have just re-read this, and think that its about time for me to get a hobby!


You can find more images of the sky at Sky Watch Friday.

Enjoy the pictures.

  2. Hi Stewart This is different. Most of our stain glass windows you cannot see through as they have more of a story in the stain glass.Margaret

  4. This reminds me of our visit to Niagara Falls last month. All that moving left & right, trying to frame a shot between people and metal & obstruction. Very big waterfall... very constrained openings to frame it.
    Stained glass is amazing - I've always admired the art!
