I'm dedicating this image to Frank because he met us in Konigswinter to take us on a an well organized tour of the area around Bonn. I covered a variety of places from cathedrals to street markets and from city to mountain hikes.
I took this picture both for the interesting shape of the window glass and for the picture that the owners had provided for the street. I thought that the glass might be an earlier form of glass like the crown glass I saw with Kath in Staithes, a Yorkshire fishing village. I've posted it in the Ci. However, as I looked at glass images, the closest match I could find was a modern from of tempered glass.
An artistic image of a plain window, not elaborate in decor or detail, but containing elements that enhance the photo. The flower and curtain inside the house, street reflections and interesting glass providing what seams to be a distorted view of the reflections. This is fine art photography.
Thank you so much for dedicating this picture to me. It's a beautiful contribution to our theme of May - as the CI is. The distorted reflections of the opposite side of the street - even from a bit dfferent angles - somehow are intriguing and the orchid is a nice eye-catcher. Yes, this has been a wonderful - and a bit exhausting ;-) - day with a lot of programme points.
Greetings to you both from springlike Germany - with still rather cold nights.

This is an elegant photo as is the window itself. Te distorted reflections and the orchid are fine details in the photo. The CI is attractive in its own way too. A great contribution to the theme.
Very nice duo picture of the window, very different mood you get out of each one. the main is more pleasant and pleasing with the flower and cheerful color and the CI is more moody with the dark interior. Each window frame can be an abstract image of its own.
These are the kind of scenes I look for when in a urban setting. I am fascinated with the scene within a scene concept. Here you have the same scene repeated six times and each iteration is slightly different than the other. The window curtain and the the pink orchid adds something to the image even though it is different than the internal scene. What is that something? I spend aa little time looking at the image and thinking what it could be. I think without the distraction the orchid the window and the image would lack that pop that takes it to the next level.
Outstanding! Well done.
plimrn (2019/05/20 19:37:27): Thank you for your comments, and it gave me a good opportunity to review some of your images!
You wonder what it behind these windows although just these few elements tell a little something of the folks who live inside. Maybe someone a little conservative? Definitely someone that does not want to show what goes on inside their household. The curtains are strictly closed. This is not me - haha. We have no curtains :-) Nice the color of the orchids bringing something colorful to the image. I also like the CI ... and I can see a feather. For Featherstone? I miss her, don't we all. Great image for the TOM.
plimrn (2019/05/20 18:54:57): I miss her too, although she does post a bit on GBplimrn (2019/05/20 18:17:52): Nor I either!
The hidden benefits of membership to PF. Its always to meet up with local members that know all the hidden treasures. I am sure that you are Frank had lots of fun. The crown glass is great here distortion but fine enough. Into my choices Pat
plimrn (2019/05/20 19:45:32): Right behind the lessons i have learned from looking, listening and commenting. It had benna great source of plaesure to me. dank je
I have a small cultivation of orchids and one exactly like this is in my fireplace at this moment. of course the fireplace is filled with others, from another type, at this moment too, it si autumn and there are many at this time.
nice use of the window with the bonus of the orchids in evidence.
plimrn (2019/05/20 19:59:26): Yes, you've shown some fine specimens. My son always sends me orchids for Mother's Day & my birthday
