Monday Window – January 4, 2021

Welcome to Monday Window in 2021

Happy New Year! With the new year we are also starting another season of looking for, at and through windows. The small community of bloggers who contribute to this topic will face new challenges. Hopefully they will be less troublesome than those of the past year.

It seems fitting to start with a quick review of what Monday Window is all about.

Well, it is about photos showing windows. Windows large and small, fancy windows and plain, modern windows and time-worn relics. Windows in buildings, houses, huts and more. Windows in vehicles of all kind. Windows meant to be seen and utilitarian windows. Windows on instruments, tools, machines, and many other devices. Windows from the outside and windows from the inside. Man-made windows and windows that nature has built.

Surely, I have not enumerated them all. Our Monday Window bloggers are imaginative and observant and find windows in grand places and hidden nooks and crannies. This group takes visitors all over the world, inside and out.

And how do they share their finds? By blogging about them on their own sites. By sharing links to their posts in the comments to posts on this site. By using tags, Monday Window and/or MondayWindow that all visitors to round up the latest posts from all over in their WordPress Reader.

By including links in their posts to wordpress.com/tag/monday-window and wordpress.com/tag/mondaywindow they direct viewers to our enthusiastic community.

Here are logos that have been used to identify Monday Window bloggers.

A bit of history about myself. Back in 1950, yes, seventy years ago, I did this water color. I had already caught the photography bug, but painting was dear to me. See I started on windows quite a while ago.

Monday Window – December 28, 2020

The year that was

This time of year one sees a great deal of reviews of the year that was. Sadly, 2020 was not a year to be nostalgic about. There was much suffering, turmoil, and sadness. The pandemic loomed over everything.

It was not considered safe for old folks like myself to be out and about and my photography suffered mightily. For me this photo illustrates much of what I saw of windows: Fast food service.

Much of what I posted was from my archives. Here a look at photos from my most popular posts. The top one got twenty stars!

Last night we drove around the neighborhood and saw wonderful decorations. There is still cheer and hope out there.

Of course I photographed the windows. The rest, though, looked to good to not include.

Through all the difficulties of 2020 our circle of friends stayed steady, posting cheerful, interesting, amazing views of windows from around the world.

I thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm. I am glad that we made it to the end of the year. I wish you all a truly happy New Year!
