Post your window photos

Let's see what's in a window - reflections and what's behind them - stores, restaurants, office buildings...

[art crit blurb warning]

Windows are a metaphor for the act and artifact of photography, a two dimensional capture and a view into the creator. They are a natural play of the medium itself, going back to Atget and Walker Evans amongst others.

[end of art crit blurb]


To get us started, here's a photo of Andy Warhol through a West Village NYC restaurant window.

Oh, and you suggested office builings...here's the view thru my window at the office! Also shot last week. The shot isn't that great, but I like my view... I like it best in summer or autumn, when you can see how many trees there are in the city and at times you can see the green hills at the horizon.

@ remko - I like that trainstation, and I'm trying to figure out how those people get reflected up high like that.

@ PFH - love the color, the windows are like jewels set in old stone

This is not a Pentax image but... we were in Niagara Falls, Ontario sitting in a restaurant overlooking the Horseshoe falls. In the left window the American falls are reflected, normally not visible from where we were sitting.

Good idea. The bird and the leaf in the window is a reflection from a door to the right. Because I was concentrating on what was inside the room I didn't see it until I look at it on the computer.



Cheers

A "window" shot more-or-less; took this picture out of the forward hatch on our sailboat this PM. The first shot that I took, PP'd and and posted directly from the boat.
