I Heart... Windows

As I've mentioned before, I try to choose a theme for each trip that I take -- something I photograph consistently which gives my collection of photos from the trip some shape.  On a recent trip to Austria and Germany, that theme was windows.
 I focused on what could be seen through windows...
 ... as well as the windows themselves.
This image shows the smokestacks of the crematorium at Mauthausen, a concentration camp.  
They are reflected in the windows of one of the barracks where the prisoners lived.  
I sat outside these windows in Salzburg and listened to a chamber orchestra rehearse.
I love the fanciful plaster work on these windows.
 And the flowers were all in bloom -- everyone had window boxes.
 Even broken windows somehow look prettier in Austria.
A note:  I used a tool called Poladroid to turn my photos in to Polaroids.  I learned about Poladroid from Teacher Meets World.  She blogged about how to install and use Poladroid here!  
And how did I find out about Teacher Meets World?  Well, I met her through's Photo Friday.  Thanks to all of you who joined me from PF, and if you haven't checked it out, do!

Beautiful photos. Lots of unique designs. Europe has a wealth of great architecture.

What a great photo project! I loved your pictures too. Windows are a lot of fun to photograph. I took a few pictures of store windows while in Vegas.

I love taking photos through windows and using window frames to frame a shot.
These are lovely.
