  1. Very interesting series of photos…..and fun, too!

  2. Fantastic series of images and great idea for a subject! My favourite of the bunch is the first “curtains” and also the “golden patina” photos. Great texture. Have a wonderful weekend, Jane 🙂

    • Thank you very much, Mike. I saw that curtain blow and then waited and waited for it to happen again. Glad you like it. Sydney is full of wonderful old architecture. Appreciate your visit!

  3. Great photos of windows Jane ! Photography helps people to see, that is so true, and you, with your amazing eye and photos, helps me to see. A very nice series Jane 🙂

  4. just LOVE the mystery of each of these shots….a little story lingering inside each one…perhaps??? Hmmmmmmmm…..leaves me much to think about in viewing them…
    great work!!

  5. I especially like the bars and vine! Excellent!

  6. What the shots say to me: Bars and Vines–no matter what you do, you cannot keep beauty out. The Murtagh quote is the best argument for photography ever. Paddington Fresh Foods made me laugh out loud because the contrast between the windows and the claim is so extreme. And Window & Duct is a great persuader for knowing you always have a choice in what you wish to see. A+ as always, Jane.

  7. Very interesting take on Sydney. I especially liked the perspective on the Glebe Street windows.

  8. I like them – gives an interesting sense of the place.

  9. Great collection. I love windows and have hundreds of pictures of them from every country I have visited…quite a lot of fun. (Suzanne)

  10. Photography as is can sometimes be only maniac collecting of conservational acts.
    I think a good photo shows the soul of the photographed object or person, perhaps even an interpretation.
    You set of photos is marvellous, Jane!

  11. Windows of time, a reflection, I wounder what all they see from their point of view?

  12. What a wonderful set, Jane. Just beautiful !

  13. Great set Jane – and that first quote is exactly how I feel!

  14. Hi Jane, I love all of these. Woman, Newtown got to be my fave. Window and duct, Bars and Vine all fabulous. Love them all.

Love to hear what you think...
