Amy of The World is a Book is the host for this week’s photo challenge. She writes: “This week, we invite you to explore ‘A Window With A View’. Share with us photos you’ve captured through windows.” Some of the views she shares on her post take my breath away!
In my part of the world, this is a typical January view. It’s good to be on the inside looking out!
The moving window of a car is a difficult opening through which to photograph, but I’ve seen some of the most spectacular sights through those windows.

Windows high above a vista provide a good frame for a landscape shot.

And sometimes, the view from the window is not as important as the contemplation within.
Whether you are inspired from within or without, may you have new windows of perspective in this New Year!
“Our senses are our windows to the world, and sometimes the wind blows through them and disturbs everything within us. Some of us leave our windows open all the time, allowing the sights and sounds of the world to invade us, penetrate us, and expose our sad, troubled selves.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
“When you follow your bliss…doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else. ” – Joseph Campbell
“The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man’s abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.”
― Henry David Thoreau
This week’s challenge is brought to Lens-Artists by Leya.
