Minimal View

Sometimes when I take a picture through a dirty window, I get an image that’s full of details I couldn’t see but that my camera spotted.

And other times, it’s more of a, shall we say, minimalist view. Depending on my mood, I like the simple ones better. This one, for example, with the heaviness of that white wood on one side offset by that cobweb on the other appeals to my eye.

Window Treatment

The windows at this church were covered with heavy screens, which had an interesting moire pattern from the inside.

And look, there to the right of the window, where something used to hang on the wall. Only the nail and a lighter-than-the-wall rectangle remain.

This was practically my favorite thing in all of downtown Eureka Springs – that translucent window at a restaurant, with a blurry patron on the other side. The trash receptacles outside the window added to the scene in a way that I liked.
