Monday Window – April 12, 2021

“That Window”

Amongst my hundreds of photos of windows, there is this one that seems to have a really good agent. It comes up again and again. Sometimes featured by itself, sometimes with the others in that building.

Yeah, that one with the balcony. It was featured ten years ago in the post “Window with Balcony” over on Two Cameras – Two Views.

Then it made it into “Monday Window 1 – Window on River Street“, albeit not by itself. It had to share the limelight with all the neighboring windows. But, that was Monday Window 1! The photo there was from a set photographed from the river. The set became a panoramic image. Some photos in that set suffered from motion blur as I was paning hurriedly.

Those motion-blurred images have served again and again as test subjects for evaluating the amazing capabilities of Topaz Sharpen AI.

See the frame in the upper right of the image above. That’s the building next door. See the tiny square – it marks the blurred antenna shown above, before and after sharpening. Another frame was not as blurred and made it into several posts. I will present it again here.

This group of buildings was been among my favorite photo subjects. Here we look at the group early one morning.

Here is a mess of photos from just across the street. No way to get back to get them all in, the Savannah river is there.

That set also served as the basis for stitching into various views.

And, of course, there were a couple of other posts where it made at least a cameo appearance: “Thursday Doors – 24“, and “Monday Window – April 27, 2020 – Contrasts in Windows“. That last post allowed only part of “that” window into the photo.

Surely it will sneak into many other posts to come.

Monday Window – May 25, 2020

An Old Shop Window

There is a folder on my computer named “Monday Window REVIEW”. As I come across a photo tagged “window” or one that obviously shows a window I toss a copy into that folder. I have been doing that for over a year. When I don’t have a “fresh” photo for my next post, and with the pandemic that has been the norm, I look in that folder for something interesting.

There was this photo of a shop window. I looked at it and could not remember the circumstances where I took that. The photo has, of course, the date taken information, February 25, 2011, 6:19 pm. So I went back into my archive to see what I could find for that date and time. There were other photos there taken within a few minutes of each other. We were in Savannah, Georgia, at Factors Walk, the back side of River Street, with its old buildings, repurposed into hotels, restaurants, and shops. The address is clearly visible on the transom window of the door.

Here are a couple more photos from that shop.

The tobacco shop is still there today, but Southern Exposure is gone. The space is now Cafe M. Hopefully we can visit there soon and enjoy a latte and a French treat.
