W/Alphabe-Thursday

 Church windows, Jackson's Point, Ontario

WINDOWS, a great w-word. Here are just a few to get you thinking about their various shapes and patterns.

 Greenhouse windows

Here I loved the curved lines created by the tubes as they related to the angles and lines of the window parts.

 Porch windows

Originally I took this photo because I liked the shadows. Doesn't the repeated pattern remind you of  a plaid?

Barn windows - altered!

Okay, I admit this is NOT what the windows looked like unaltered.  This version makes me smile and I hope it curves your lips upwards too. What I did was apply planet photography to the original, which you can try on a photo of your own by  clicking HERE.

The church window is nice for it's colour, but the porch window with the blinds and shadows is a terrific shot!

What a fun, fun, fun series of windows. The church windows, and the unusual way they open are really show stopping, as are your altered barn windows. Great shots.
