  1. Windows are like thresholds to worlds we would want to touch. I adore that moment when rain drops make them real and make us recall the magic in them. Thank you, Jane for so much beauty.

  2. The window images are wonderful.

  3. The rain give you have a beautiful blurred effect on your pictures what looks like art!
    I love the black and white picture “Blind Ambition”. πŸ™‚
    “Window Washer” has something creepy, but that fits with the time of the year πŸ˜‰
    You have a great view “Bridge and Moon”! But what is that cilinder thing there hanging in the air? (kind of UFO?)
    This is a fascinating post, Jane with beautiful pictures!
    Best regards, Heidi

  4. Beautiful, inspiring shots, Jane! I especially like the window washer’s legs and your rainy day shots. Hope the smoke is clearing and the fires go out very soon.

    • Thanks very much, Patti. Life around my windows is quite inspiring and entertaining. Smoke is at its worst and the situation dire. Very sad stories of the devastation. πŸ˜” Appreciate your concern.

  5. So much to appreciate! Beautiful photographs.

  6. Great moments and cool pics…the leg picture seems to be the beginn of a crime story (the murder sometimes is not the gardener) πŸ™‚

  7. Excellent mood and creativity πŸ™‚

  8. Give me a window and I’ll stare into it.

  9. Such a gorgeous collection of images Jane. Rainy impressions would make a wonderful painting. Have a great and creative October. Warmest wishes πŸ™‚

  10. This is a charming collection, creatively woven together. Sunrise and Fog is as beautiful as Legs is funny.

  11. Your response to the challenge is absolutely gorgeous, Jane. The first one is a gem as an opener and you keep the viewer totally captivated, marevelling, smiling and smirking all the way to the end. Bravo! πŸ™‚

  12. These are wonderful Jane – loved the legs and of course all of your rainy day shots. Wonderful creativity this week.

  13. Again, a great collection.
    For me, the window shots are outstanding, as they are different form most of your other photos, but equally good.

  14. That was fun, Jane! I love the dangling legs – perfect! Also the impressionistic Red and Blue, and Night Vision. I hope all your views are good ones!

  15. There’s always something about shooting through a rainy window, Jane, that I really like

  16. What a great series, Jane.
    I especially love “Bridge and Moon.”
    Just beautiful.

  17. Lovely interpretations of the prompt. πŸ™‚

  18. Fabulous gallery of images. I especially love the window cleaner shots.

  19. Such depth and variety to these!

  20. Hi really love these captures and the word play – you really have blind ambition

  21. Excellent work, Jane. I love the Blind Ambition and the Sunrise & Fog photos.

  22. Legs. Ha. Makes me laugh. The silhouette of the window washer is interesting. I am glad you pointed out what it was because it’s not what it looks like. I might be reading too many crime thrillers

  23. just gorgeous shots Jane!!! really loving the ‘LEGS’ …great eye!!!πŸ‘

  24. Wonderful title ~ and sets the state for every one of your photos, such diversity of what you do with your camera never ceases to amaze. The first and opening shot bringing a perfect feeling for me. While those sunny, fine days make for a great day out be it to enjoy the day or to shoot, it is the contrast of your first photo I love. The rainy days which we find other treasures to fill the day. Brilliant work Jane.

    • Hi Randall, It’s amazing how inspiring the world is without stepping outside my door. Rain is so infrequent here that I do treasure those cozy, beautiful, stormy days. Pleased you enjoyed this series. Hope you are doing well.

  25. Love the shakespeare quote you incorporated

  26. Really like the Bridge and Moon shot. And the Blind Ambition shot gives me an old time movie feel…like Perry Mason or someone smoking a cigarette is going to show up….lol. Nice post Jane.

  27. well done, pal! so many curiosities to find and photograph–and you’ve got the knack to make them all so much more appealing or arresting. always love seeing the vast sky and Bridge and Bay–but also the slightly creepy night scenes that you cannot help but peek through those windows…

  28. Interesting counterpoint. I looked out on similar scenes of San Francisco in the early 70s. I just posted a shot of the windows I look out of these days. Your post shot me right back to those early days when I still enjoyed city living. Thanks for this evocative trip you sent me on! πŸ™‚

  29. Wow! Great pics! Sure pays to look out …of windows!😊

  30. A great collection. And very evocative of our wonderful holiday. Ex

  31. With a retrospective on the places you’ve visited, I had a feeling another windows view would happen soon. The night time views, for some reason, reminded me of Hitchcock’s Rear Window. πŸ™‚

    The fog wafting through the city at sunrise, very, very cool shot.

  32. That first rainy window is unique, original. Bravo!

  33. Fabulous photographs Jane and a superb response to the challenge! πŸ™‚

  34. Great selection but I have to admit very slight disappointment at not seeing a photo of Melissa Etheridge looking out a window….

  35. Beautiful, Jane. Bridge and Moon is my favorite, too.

  36. Golden Gate Clouds and Bridge and Moon are my two favorites. I did like those dangling legs though.

  37. Another set of great images. The Bridge and Moon is especially moving.

  38. Red and Blue – so simple, but everybody know what it’s about πŸ˜€

  39. Love this collection Jane. Interesting mix of photos! Love the window washers and the last one is my favorite. 😌

  40. Love your city rainy window!

  41. Stunning post. I couldn’t decide on a favorite but love the mystery of Night Windows.

  42. Beautiful interpretation of windows again, Jane. I really like the first one of the rain washing down the window. In a way it’s like looking through a hazy dream and out to the light. Hope the people behind the windows didn’t see you taking a photo of them…the window washers must be very absorbed in what they are doing, and rightfully so so high up πŸ™‚

  43. Brilliant, your fertile mind given free rein.

  44. A celebration of light and contrast – beautiful, Jane!
