Behind The Glass

Purple House

My iTunes: Better Days by the Goo Goo Dolls

As I sit here looking at the rain and feeling the cold air seeping through my window, I started looking through my images from my day in Notting Hill. I am in need of some warmth and sun again.

I always love shots of homes, doors, windows....as I have said before, I always imagine the life being led behind each of them. With my camera down, I am people watcher in places I visit. Although there is much to capture and share I am always aware of their privacy. For this reason, I tend to find other areas of interest to shoot. Hope you enjoy these images...they came out just as pretty as the day I stood underneath them.

I hope that you all a sunny and dry week ahead!

More rain? Send it to NC - we're in a drought right now.

With your site I feel like I'm getting an insider's look into London. The colorful buildings you find there remind me of some of the houses in New Orleans. People in these two cities aren't afraid to get away from white weather board and red bricks.

We could use a little Carolina sunshine about now.

Your picture reminds me of a cool exhibit I saw at a Tate by Gerhard Richter called "panes."

Most of his works are commentaries on the limitations and potential of art. This one mentioned the artistic cliche of the window being a vista or gateway to another world. Window panes were stacked together in such a way as to reveal only a distorted reflection.

Something scary is on the other side of that window ;)

Great shots Anna. Windows are always interesting but these colors are something!

Hmmm.....maybe I should paint my house purple.

I wish I could send you some of our sun and heat (it was 93* today!!)

I love close ups on pretty houses as well... Seeing these has reminded me of some gorgeous ones I took in Italy last summer. Will post one or two on WW, as I am in need of some warmth and sunshine too!!

I love how clean the lines are in these pics. Such a contrast to what I saw for the last 10 days!

Excellent images Anna. My fave would be the purple house!

I really like the angle of the purple house photo and the flowers cascading down.
Wishing you a warm and snuggly day.
