Lingering Look at Windows

I missed posting for this last week, so I decided to make an early effort this week! Take a look at more windows over at Dawn’s blog, The day After.

As one of my New Year Photographic Resolutions, I am trying to get a few slides scanned in each week (originally daily, but that soon failed!). This gets me on a real memory trip – stuff from my travels that I haven’t looked at for years. Great fun, and also very frustrating at times when I can’t remember the precise place an image was taken!

Anyway, today’s Blasts from the Past are some windows from Görlitz and Zittau in the region of Oberlausitz, Eastern Germany. I intend to do a post or two on wandering through Oberlausitz, among many other intended posts!! Time is of the essence, and I’m running out of Essence…. anyway, back to the windows:

I like the objects/details surrounding these, rather than the windows themselves. Alas, I don’t know the buildings the windows were in, or the significance of the details. I dare say I could find some of it out by a bit of web trawling, but I think they are reasonably visually satisfying. At least, I hope so, my last post for Ese’s challenge was seriously undervisited!!

The first one has the intricate decoration of the ship, plus a weird little window below it:

A rather nice bear:

Beautifully decorated:


At The Old Post, Zittau



  1. A very fine bear indeed – nice to see such architectural detail.

  2. It is often the architecture that catches my eye as much as the windows themselves, which are more often quite boring, but add the plaster decorations, carvings, key-stones, or shutters or the colour of the frames and you have ‘something’. Well you know exactly what I mean. And occasionally (like my recent peacock-tail windows) you have windows which are deserving of a photograph purely for their own sake 😀

    Beautiful decorations Sue. Lovely selection for the challenge. 😀

  5. Beautifully detailed windows. How long ago did you take them? I admire your resolution to get your old slides onto the computer, what a mammoth job. But it is a lovely way to have a trip down memory lane

  6. Beautiful decorations around the windows and a lovely little bear

  7. Don’t have time to comment on all the posts but there are some great photos in them, Sue 🙂
