Monday Window – Martinique

On our Caribbean cruise, we made a stop at the beautiful island of Martinique. My wife and I chose to do a photo excursion of the city of Fort-de-France. I captured many beautiful buildings with their wonderful windows.

I hope you enjoyed the windows of Martinique. Which is your favorite?

 

Monday Window – March 27, 2017 Windows of St. Lucia

I discovered last week that the Monday Window WordPress site has discontinued sponsoring this weekly challenge. I, however, have continued to photograph many windows during my travels. Therefore, I will continue to post Monday Window entries when I have appropriate photographs.

Today, I will be posting window photos from the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. I hope you enjoy all of them.

Today, I will be posting window photos from the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. I hope you enjoy all of them.

Monday Window – Jan 9, 2016

Today I want to feature some great window shots from Key West, Florida. Shading windows is very important in Key West, where the sun can be brutal all year. For that reason, I want to start with some unusual windows designed to keep out direct sunlight but to allow a breeze to blow through the building.

Monday Window – Nov 14, 2016

My wife and I were in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina on Saturday for the first annual Veterans Day Parade (follow the link for post on the parade). Walking back to the car after the parade, I decided to snap a few photos for my windows and door posts this week. Here is a beautiful window in a building that houses the Greensboro Historical Museum.

Here is a closeup of the plaque just below the window:

We have visited this museum several times and still have not seen everything that is offered. If you want a good background into the history of the Greensboro area, this is the place to start.

Mundane Monday Challenge #81 : Learn Photography

This is a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple: find beauty in everyday mundane things and frame it beautifully. What could be more mundane than making morning coffee. The picture was taken using my iPhone 6. There is even a touch of red for one of my favorite photographers/bloggers Helen Bushe of the blog PHOTOPHILE. Follow the link to discover many great photos.

Monday Window – Oct 17, 2016

For today’s Monday Window I would like to pay tribute to the Twin Towers in NYC that were destroyed on September 11th, 2001. The featured image is called “The View Facing West” and was photographed on September 10, 2002 by David Leite. It was copied from “The David Blahg” which you can find via the link.

The second photo I would like to share is of the World Trade Center lobby from August 19th, 2000. This photo is compliments of Smurfy from English Wikipedia.

world_trade_center_lobby_08-19-2000

I have many memories of passing though this lobby on my way to work in downtown NYC. I still find it very difficult to go to Manhattan. I think I have been there twice since that fateful day, and both times, I was very uncomfortable. That tragic attack has left a deep scar inside. We should never forget those that lost their lives that day and those sick and evil people that caused this tragedy.

Monday Window – Sept 19, 2016

Here is my Monday Window post. Follow the link to see other posts on this topic.

Saturday I was in Roseland, NJ for my daughter’s wedding. It took place at the Ss. Nicholas, Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church. What a beautiful church. What beautiful windows and doors. Today I will show just a few of the windows. There are too many for just a single post.

First, I want to give you a view of this church from a distance:

Here are the windows on the left hand tower:

Here is the Featured Image again showing some of the dome windows:

And finally, for today, here is a picture of the dome windows from the inside:

Next Monday, we will explore some other windows from this facility.

Fast-paced military science fiction, I was very impressed that this is a first novel for Mr. Waugh. The author has really done his homework, as he has worked with many concepts of science, history, anthropology, space travel and military technology in this book. The story “reads” very well, editing is good, I only found 3 or 4 instances where the wrong word was used or misspelled. I really like the chapter structure and the 3 main story lines that are going on (two alien ones, and one human). I can’t wait to get the next installment of this story–hope it comes soon.

Monday Window – Sept 12, 2016

Here is my Monday Window post for this week. We have a small local shopping center with many different tenants, but a consistent theme to the front doors and windows. Here are a few examples:

img_3814

The fourth entry is a side entry into a newly constructed building that has not opened for business yet. You can see the consistency being executed by the owner:

Even though each of these window pictures includes a door, the door is mostly a window anyway.



 

5.0 out of 5 stars

Please hurry with the next NU book!
