Sandra Conner from the blog “By The Book” started a new weekly photo challenge a couple of weeks ago that sounds like fun, especially for someone like me who takes a lot of pictures of windows:
Sandra’s description of this challenge: “Now this challenge is a little different: The challenge is just for “Thursday’s Windows.” Each Thursday, we post a different window, but the main theme will not change. (I love windows.)
And all of you readers out there who are over-burdened by these challenges, please feel free to skip this one. But if you want to participate, I’m looking forward to seeing all the varieties of windows that open us up to the rest of the world.
Also, please feel free to post on a day other than Thursday. If you get busy and forget on Thursday, put it up anytime before the next Thursday. I will renew the challenge each Thursday with my own window, and then you can post again on that Thursday as well. Very Important: Be sure to post a link to your window in the comment section below.” I have a link to Sandra’s blog at the end of this post.
I’m late posting mine this week, but here’s my Thursday’s Windows photo:
Sandra’s photo of school windows this week reminded me of a recent picture I took of an old school. Workers were there salvaging wood from inside and preparing to tear the building down when we stopped to take pictures. Most of the windows had been broken out long ago, leaving large gaps where windows once were, but a few windows had survived the weather and vandalism over the years. The school was built circa 1921, and the windows were designed like other schools built in that era, with lots of windows to allow air to circulate on hot days.
