Window

Window is Jake's theme for today's Sunday post.

My selection of photos consists mainly of windows from older houses:

Before I send you off to Jake's blog to look at windows from all over the world, let me tell you that Maluda, who was a famous Portuguese artist (1934-1999), loved painting windows. 

Why don't you visit the Maluda site's archive for "janelas"(windows) category" and click on each "janela" title to see her window paintings.

  1. Love that you used the "older" windows for this challenge. Beautiful shots. I love the shutters. Always loved the look of them. Hopefully, one of these fine days, I can do something like that at my place
