the view from here


i see

a bizarre little window on the landing of the stairs
wondering why it was put there by the builder over 30 years ago
it becomes clear while gazing out through it each morning
as I make my way down the stairs

or catching reflections
of the tree against it's glass
from the front yard in late afternoon

reflecting

final . dogwood . images . of . spring

Thank goodness your builder thought of it, yes? What a daily blessing.

Judy said...

I'm glad he did, because you get to share the view with us.

decided to come here again today. i have gotten lost over at your black and white space.

spring is slow in appearing in my cold country but i cling in hope, to green nodes i see popping on the trees.

my window, also quite a bizarre one, on the landing looks out over a red roofed barn. it somehow calms me.

The window looks as if it's created to frame nature's art beyond. Lovely images!!!

Your pictures are like looking through a window at home for me. I can close my eyes and envision myself right where you stood when you took the shot. The dogwood looks like it's in full spring swing. xoxo

I love stained glass windows! It reminds me of my childhood. And that beautiful tree must be a wonderful sight to see every morning!

I have a funny little window like that in my stairway - it catches the sunrise like no other window does.
