February Photo challenge "Window/s"

The theme for February is Window/s…..into/out of a window/s, light from a window/s, reflections in a window/s, stained glass windows, broken window/s, advertising on a window etc. etc. etc.

or even just 'a window frame'.....an example not my submission



be creative


rules…you need to have taken the image you post!!!

I look forward to seeing your creativity!!!!

Great theme CG, I’d like to hear a bit about the photo you posted. I still want to see what I can dig up or actually shoot this month but as a placeholder, in case I run out of time, I’ll submit this photo I took through a guard tower window on the Great Wall back in 2005 (I think).

It’s a structure in the abandoned small town of Ballarat in California’s northern Mojave desert.

Dropped in on my favourite window building - probably for the last time. The wreckers have moved in.

clemsongirl Thanks for that. I wasn't aware this was a contest. I haven't frequented this area of BF, so I am like an old noob!

That jet has a couple nicknames like Sparky, and The Plastic Princess but is officially known as a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It's a pretty cushy ride.
