I was looking over photos I took during my last trip to England and noticed that I had several photos of windows. They are not all the same style and each have their own beauty. They are everywhere. It is interesting to think about the number of windows one sees during a lifetime, or even in just one day! How many times do we look out of or peer into a window?
During a day trip to Stamford, England, I discovered beauty in the windows there. Stamford is a beautiful town in Lincolnshire and was used as the village of Meryton in the filming of the 2005 movie version of Pride and Prejudice. There is no question in my mind of why they decided to film there!
These windows are so beautiful. Not only the designs on the windows themselves but also the carved stone corners. Windows like these make me wonder what the rooms beyond them look like.
How many people walk by these windows day by day? I love the flowerboxes. I wonder about the life stories behind the windows and the person who planted the flowers. The simplicity of these windows make them beautiful.
In Cambridge, England, I found yet another type of window. I don’t know the actual name but I would call them slotted windows. I wonder why they were put on this building and if they were there for defensive purposes.
I love the ivy growing up and on this window. When combined with the stone work and the intricate design, it speaks of times past and yet the now because the ivy is flourishing.
All of these windows are different but they are not unique in that someone had to create each one. Each one has a story and has been there as life has unfolded around it on either side.
I took the next photo in Stamford, England. I took this picture for a reason. Please comment on WHY you think I took this picture and also what you think the story might have been behind it.
I will post in the comment section in a few days as to why I took the picture.
