Owen Sound Windows

House reflected in window across the street

A few old streets in Owen Sound  are lined with handsome, well-kept old homes.  Sadly, at least to me,  many are now businesses, but maybe that ensures they will continue to be well maintained.

Reflections in windows are so interesting and the windows themselves are beautiful.

I see you also like to take reflection shots in windows. Also like to get ones that show the inside with a reflection. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Jen

Great window! I love these old houses. We have the same "problem" in the historic district...beautiful old homes have been converted to lawyer's offices, architectural offices, doctor's offices, etc.

I wish my windows were that clean! Great shots and a perfect reflection.

Judy said...

I love it! I'm with you, if houses had feelings they might be lonely and miss the laughter of children and the aroma of meals being prepared. But at least they will continue to be useful.

lovely reflections and better being a business than derelict...

That was a very special window, and the red from the reflected house fitted the photo very well

RedPat said...

At least the buildings are being saved! ;-)

Sylvia K said...

Terrific reflections as always! We're seeing the same thing happen here in the states and it is sad, but at least some of those lovely old houses are being saved and that's a good thing! Have a great weekend!

Beautiful window and it reflected the older house wonderfully!

Karen said...

Great reflections! I love Owen Sound, and dream about living there.

Malyss said...

Love it!the reflection of the house is so beautifully framed!

The house in the reflection looks a little bit like I image the house in the Hans and Gretel fairy tale... Not as yummy, I guess, but the architecture is very close...

Great catch on that reflection !

Michelle said...

That is a great reflection!

kelley said...

It almost looks like the house is inside the big building--and that is a very pretty window

Laura said...

What a beautifully framed reflection!

Deanna said...

that round window is a beauty with all that leaded glass!!

LONDONLULU said...

Love the reflection and, yes, the buildings at least look rather well cared-for!

Jack said...

Beautiful. I prefer the close-up. Sometimes having the buildings occupied by businesses is the best way to preserve the buildings. I have seen residences converted to businesses and later back to residences.

Randy said...

Another nice reflection.
