Lingering Look at Windows : Harz

For Dawn’s Lingering Look at Windows challenge this week (to which I am completely addicted), I have taken an image from my travels some years ago in the Harz mountain region of Germany. Over the last few days, I have been rather constrained in my activities following a fall and a nasty sprained ankle. So, what’s a girl to do but have a good old reminisce, which I duly did, trawling through some transparencies taken in eastern Germany. This, as mentioned in a previous post, was triggered by a newspaper article on this region.

So, I found one image from the town of Goslar with umpteen windows in the facade and on the roof of a building. Taken as a whole, it was a bit too ‘busy’ so I split it into the roof (windows peeping through the tiles), and the facade (windows with a gazillion reflections). In doing this, the images (scanned from the transparencies) have lost some resolution, but I thought, what the heck you get the idea, and here they are.






  1. Love Love the first one and the fact that one of the windows is open.

    An amazing group of windows – a “triangle” of windows – very unusual! 🙂

    • Is’t it just! You do see some fascinating windows in the roof in Eastern Europe…in Sibiu, Romania they were shallow almost half moon shapes, will have to dig some of these out some time! 🙂

  3. Wonderful windows, especially the first one. How very unusual to see so many windows on one piece of roof. 🙂

Over to you...
