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 DeliciousBaby.com's Photo Friday.  Thanks to all of you who joined me from PF, and if you haven't checked it out, do!

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.
