boxes of light

Along the way to some vintage and thrift shops, these buildings stood out to me. I like trying to guess the stories and characters that have accompanied each window over the years.

  3. beautiful - and i wonder about the stories too

  4. I love this grouping! Title + images accompanied with your thoughts... It triggers the imagination!


    Thank you :-)

  5. this is a post from my heart... one of my favorite parts about wandering around is imagining the lives behind the windows

  6. these are beautiful - old buildings are my favourite ♥

  7. Boring it may sound but I kind of like the trees in the pictures :)

  8. Ah, your pictures are always so beautiful...

  9. I do the same thing! Whenever I see a cool, esp. old looking house, I always wonder who lives there and what their story is. Would it be really weird to knock on their door and ask?? :)

  10. lovely

  11. So do I.
    There may be a young man inside of the closed windows writing a long novel based on his exact memories.
    Do you like madeleine?
    I took photo of the cherry blossoms in the literary tradition.

  12. Elisabelle: High-5!

    thenextarrow: I hope you are having a sweet day too!

    Char: Thank you!

    Kite Tails: It's quite fun to think about indeed.

    Tumbleweed Woman: I like how the options are endless.

    Athena: The old buildings are charming me a lot lately.

    Erik: Not boring in the least! I love photographing trees, flowers, and clouds probably the most. I understand!

    Marion: Thank you, I feel the very same about yours.

    aipingplum: haha, I'm not sure I have the guts for that...but then again it seems like it could work in the right situation and with the right person.

    Kim: Thank you and sending you a big hug!

    rc: I love the character you depicted and yes I do like madeleine. What a lovely idea to do cherry blossoms that way.

  13. I love that last green window, that style architecture is one of my favorite. I'm always looking up at windows and the different types of architectures. There is a street in Providence with this really beautiful curves widow.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  14. This reminds me of the University District, where I spent many beloved years. I, too, wonder about windows. So many stories...

  15. old buildings are always interesting to look at and make you wonder about their past.
