Church Windows

 Original photo, cropped a bit tight, I agree (a light above the windows was annoying!) - Anglican Church, Whitby

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE

"The world is but a canvas to our imaginations."
~ Henry David Thoreau

At first I was drawn in by the reflection of the old commercial building across the street reflecting in the windows - how they were almost mirror images of each other. Then I suddenly realized, HEY! Neat shapes!!

Cropped, drybrush, poster edges

 Black and white

Inverted colour

I am joining Geometric Friday HERE.

I am linking to NF Digital Art Meme  HERE.

Truly, you have turned the scene into art. I bet the blue and orange would look great beside each other!

were none of them stained glass? Great shots all the same.

Kate said...

It is especially annoying when one cannot control the light!

Sandra said...

i like all the shapes and i think the inverted brings all that out best.. those look like gargoyle heads on there to me..

William Kendall said...

Very pretty!

Great building. I liked seeing the various versions of the photo. I like the single window best.

My mind assumed I was looking at stained glass windows when I read the words Anglican church...but no, they're reflections. Very interesting and I, of course, like the way you've gotten a little artsy with he picture!

Cool reflection capture. And I like all your edits too.

Before I looked closely, I thought the windows had abstract geometric patterns in them. Wonderful image for Geometric Friday.

Ruth Kelly said...

It is almost confusing because the windows look brick.

Cloudia said...

Jolly happy photos!

Brilliant EG! The second one is my favourite!

Kay said...

Great selection of a shot that started out beautiful to begin with. All are very fine. The inverted color is a real eye-opener.

Ginny said...

Wow! It doesn't even look like a reflection! It looks like the windows are made of brick. What a totally awesome effect! And I love the color in the last picture that you edited, it is beautiful.

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Great , such strong design, you have a 'good' eye with the camera

Kathy said...

Hmmm. Reflections of windows in windows. Nice.

Stewart M said...

Town reflections are a great source of pictures.

Andrea Priebe said...

Hey, I have to agree ... neat shapes. All of these pictures could stand alone. What a good eye you have (not a surprise)and you covered several posts in one ... Great job!!

Love the quote and the reflections. The shapes are great and your post recessing fun. I would have cropped the third window out of the picture.
