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:
