Abstract-looking photos can be some of my favorites because they look more like “art” and less like photography. Also because you can look at them over and over and see something else, depending on your mood. This is one I have posted before, but I can’t resist posting again because it fits the theme.

And this is another I took more recently.

Although both are reflections, they have a very different look.

Lastly, try to guess what this is?

I remember my father teaching me to use a grid when drawing, but I had never thought about using one in photographing. This was an interesting topic.

This first photo shows a “grid within a grid”: a grid of shadows reflected in the grid of an old window.

And the second one…well, how many different grids can you find in this one?

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.

I decided to revisit the topic. I took these photos the same day I took the ones of the Christmas ornaments, but initially went with the Christmas theme because of the time of year.

These are some reflections I found in the mirrors in my home.
