This week’s photo challenge topic is Windows. I don’t find parking lots particularly interesting (and I don’t think my blogger friends would either) so I chose to spare everyone pictures of the view outside my apartment windows. Instead, I’m sharing some recent photos I took of some windows with a view (taken from the outside).

The first once was taken during my recent ocean walk. There’s a small reflection of me taking the picture in the second panel. It looks like it could be mountains, but it is Plymouth bay.

The other two are windows at Norman Rockwell’s studio in Stockbridge. The studio was closed for the winter so we could only look at the outside. It was moved from its original spot in town to the grounds of the museum. It now looks out over the river and has a mountain view the artist would have enjoyed if he had ever worked there. You can see trees and a mountain view reflected.

It’s hard to see the view reflected in the tiny window, but I thought it was very picturesque with the eagle over it.

In keeping with the New Year, the topic of this week’s challenge is Beginning.

New Year’s Day I went on my first photography “meetup.” I signed up for the group on the  Meetup web site late last year, but I hadn’t been able to find time to attend any of the events except a photography show.

New Year’s Day dawned sunny, but very cold. It would have been easy to just stay warm in my home, but I had resolves to go out picture-taking at least once a week in 2014, despite the weather (so I will have plenty of pictures to share with you bloggers).

We began our meander at a marshy park where there was free parking.

There were only 9 of us, but I had a great time. The small group was nice; we talked and walked along the waterfront in Plymouth. You can see how bundled up we were.

In the beginning the only others we encountered were seagulls.

We passed the bridge to the jetty…too cold to walk out there.

We finally reached the harbor, where there was some ice between the boats.

After 1 1/2 hours, the extra hearty souls kept going, but three of us walked back to our cars, where we saw some other bundled-up walkers just beginning.
