Monday Window – March 15, 2021

Five and Ten Years Ago

Just five years ago I was trying to get Monday Window underway. It started out well and then had its share of problems. But today I want to celebrate.

It was the sixth post that introduced this badge:

Only much later did I clean it up and make it look a tad more professional.

Should you wish to use one of these logos to promote the Monday Window community, you can do click on the ones below and download them.



But even longer ago, this time of year back in 2011, I started the 2C2V blog. Some of the earliest posts there featured windows. Looking back in my archive, I was rather surprised how windows attracted my attention and were my frequent subjects. I will share some of those in the next few weeks as the anniversary dates come by.

Monday Window is a weekly blog post challenge featuring one or more photos of windows, prominently or as the main subject.

Monday Window – March 8, 2021

Seeing windows

I was stopped at a traffic light when the windows of the truck ahead of me on the other side of the intersection struck me as interesting. As I had just stopped for the changing light I had plenty of time to pull out my phone and take a couple of pictures.

The truck’s windows had apparently been splashed with muddy water during the recent rain and the wiped areas made the windows seem rather like eyes to me.

Well, phones take rather wide-angle photos and the truck was just a small spot in the picture. Funny how we can seemingly zoom in on subjects with our eyesight, even when they are rather far away.

We also seem to be able to reduce the actual details that are in front of us to just the interesting lines and areas. Sort of like this:

Well, let’s settle on just a crop from the photo as my entry today for Monday Window.
