Wordless Wednesday: The Bay Window
It’s been a while since I shared any photos of our lovely, little cats, Juno and Luna, so today is a Caturday Close-Up!
What big eyes you’ve got Luna!! Whatever is the reason for this wide-eyed stare? It might have something to do with our attempt to introduce them to the great outdoors today! I spent over an hour trying to coax the pair out with me on a lovely, sunny afternoon and they got as far as………
………heads out the window, tails firmly on the windowsill! Not at all what I was expecting from such curious cats!
Photographs are windows into the photographers world. Often they are windows into precious moments from our past.
My featured image is a photograph from 1995 of my friend Rachel posed by a broken window in an abandoned factory near the village of Gomshall. My second image is from the same photoshoot. Both photos were taken on film and developed by myself in a dark room. I miss doing that!
My third photograph is of Charlotte, taken at Stokesay Castle in 2008, not long after I’d started dating her father, Simon. I love our visits to Shropshire! I love them too of course 🙂
My last photograph for this weeks challenge is from 2013. This is my goddaughter, Rosie, and her brother, James, at Mansion House in Leatherhead, eagerly awaiting the marriage of their grandmother, Chris, to Trev. I don’t photograph many weddings but this was family, special. Both the children also had their naming ceremonies at Mansion House!
These portraits by window-light are visual links to some of the most precious people in my life. The invisible strings that run though their lives are tied to many loved ones. I can see them all when I look at these photos. They’re just through the memory window of my mind and tied to my heart.
Poor Pixel, it’s been a horrible, rainy day so he’s not been out!
He’s been sulking on the windowsill but still looks, somehow, angelic 😉
Well? Are you coming outside or not Pixel?
The Daily Prompt today, on the subject of Landscapes, asked the question “When you gaze out your window — real or figurative — do you see the forest first, or the trees?”.
Well on days like today my gaze is always drawn away from the bigger picture, to the delicate intricacy of the falling raindrops, running in ever changing rivulets before my eyes.
A fellow photographer, Paul Davis, had also come up with a similar landscape today, entitled “Fade to Blue“, which really intrigued me as I was looking through my reader!
I think Landscapes come in an infinite variety of forms.
Pixel was fed up with the dirt, fur and nose prints on the window disrupting his view. I told him it was his mess so he could clean it up!
He pointed out that he doesn’t have opposable thumbs. I said that was a paw excuse!
