The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Amy.

Banner photo is a window with a view built in. It’s Tiffany Window – Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Once upon a time this was a very favored special spot, partly for the superb windows with a view. Blue River, CO, facing south toward Hoosier Pass:

2017, on a Scotland and Ireland tour. I believe these were once windows looking into the interior of a manor house. Time, tide, and nature waits for no man:

Kate and Wills, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, went to school in St. Andrews, Scotland, and likely gazed out of these windows:

Where Kate met Wills (for coffee), if you can read the fine print. Yes, here and in every other coffee shop in town while they were in school.

The Scotland/Ireland tour. Oh the stories stones could tell, if stones told stories. They keep their secrets well:

Looking out a window of the Millicent Rogers Museum, absolutely THE place for an education in southwest jewelry and crafts art:

Window with a View from a tour barge in the Netherlands, on a bike-and-barge tour with International Bicycle Tours in 2015:

Bus Window with a View leaving the Kinderdijk village in the Netherlands:

Float-plane Window with a View while circling Denali in Alaska. I’m not positive if this particular mountain is Denali, but you get the idea:

As always, kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

Best wishes for 2020.

    Wow John, a great collection. The Tiffany is amazing! We booked a scenic plane in Denali but couldn’t take it as the weather socked us in😫. So I appreciate your photo even more!

    Always love seeing the stories that ancient stones can tell. Inspiring to the imagination. That circle window with the fence in the background is really intriguing. Really interesting post, John. ❤
