Monday Window – January 20, 2020

Cafe Window

We have a new cafe in town. I attended the grand opening, this is the plain window at the front.

As I was photographing the event and wanted to retain the ambiance of the place, I did not use flash. Photographing this window from the much darker inside presented a challenge. Using a tripod was not feasible, so no multiple exposures and HDR stacking. I decided on a setting that would overexpose the outside and underexpose the inside, then I processed the image as “cafe art” – fitting enough!

Here is the little cafe, of course, also in “cafe art” processing.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to just tease. Yes, there were people there. Yes, there was a grand opening, here, I’ll show you.

Monday Window – January 13, 2020

Broken Windows

My schedule for Saturday had been to go “window shopping”, but it was not to be. Destructive storms raked the South with heavy damage in places. Tornado watches were in effect all around and power and internet had sporadic interruptions.

As is often the case, I turned to my archive. In the spring of 2008 a similar weather pattern also came across this area. The Atlanta area was hit by several tornadoes. Flying debris smashed may windows in the Westin hotel tower downtown. I took this photo several months later. The broken windows were still covered with temporary patches as repairs were waiting for custom-made glass for the building.
