This weeks Photo Challenge brings with it the many meanings that “windows” sums up. For me I thought I would try to start off with a couple of stock standard window images I have taken lately then I may try to bring you some of the less contemporary images that sum up Windows for me.
This image I have submitted here is one of a window that is not far from my house, I stopped past it the other day and loved the reflection of the Urunga footbridge out to the beach that I could see in the reflection as I started to pass by it. I quickly grabbed my trusty camera and this was unplanned for any use in the challenge. It was just a great window at the time. I am more than pleased to share this image with you all and I hope you enjoy my reflection in the window.
The word window originates from the Old Norse ‘vindauga’, from ‘vindr – wind’ and ‘auga – eye’, i.e. “wind eye”. from Wikipedia. Primitive windows were just holes in the wall.
The eyes are also said to be the windows to the soul. I may explore this area.
Windows – Windows 1.0 is a 16-bit graphical operating environment, developed by Microsoft and released on 20 November 1985.
