I went window shopping today! I bought four windows.Tommy Cooper
When out with my camera I often ‘shop’ for windows, seeking out ones that might make interesting images. Whether peering through them, looking for reflections or simply enjoying the geometry of their frames, windows make great subjects for photography.
For Debbie’s One Word Sunday theme of ‘Window’ I’ve brought together photos from my recent trip to Paris which all feature one or more windows. My header photo is of modern stained glass in the Église de Saint-Christophe-de-Javel, an early 20th century church that we stumbled on quite by chance. I’ll definitely share more photos from there soon! Meanwhile, enjoy this random selection from our Paris wanderings.
And as Paris is definitely one of my happy places, I’m again linking to Ju-Lyn’s Happy Place Happy Space challenge.
