Cee’s black and white photo challenge: looking through or into a window
Jen at Traveling at wits end invites photographers who love window images to open themselves to moments of windows within windows. This moment was accompanied by a silent voice, “ah…here I am windowS within a window as well as windows within a reflection!”
Nancy’s photo challenge for this week is: Shine, “Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before?”
The design of this building; that is, the way it’s structure invited light and shadow to play with it’s mirrors and windows, not only caused me to stop it also invited me to revisit the building at different times of the day to “be in awe” of how it reflected ongoing changes of the weather as well as the sun’s journey.
…once someone had been in your life – you could keep that person there despite the agony of loss, as long as you had faith that you could bring the sum of all your hours together in one shining moment.
~Stones from the River, Ursula Hegi

Jung describes synchronicity as a meaningful coincidence of two or more events, where something other than the probability of chance is involved. …The critical factor is the meaning, the subjective experience that comes to the person: events are connected in a meaningful way, that is, events of the inner and outer world, the invisible and the tangible, the mind and the physical universe. This coming together at the right moment can happen only without the conscious intervention of the ego. …it is as though the psyche had its own secret design…
~The Essence of Jung Psychology and Tibetan Buddhism, Radmila Moacanin
I find myself drawn to photograph people who seemingly are within their own worlds as they wander, interact, mingle within the public realm. Yet, sometimes the eye is drawn towards the amazing abstract paintings light creates within the window canvas.
Seeing Differently is an October challenge proposed by Robyn.
Although the wind
blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roof planks
of this ruined house.
