Bad weather always looks worse through a window.
– Tom Lehrer –
Windows are the eyes of the home. From the inside looking out, they frame the view of the outside world.
Seen from the outside, the windows form part of the face of the house.
This is The Red House, through the eyes of The Wild Child. Two eyes, a green nose (or maybe a nose/mouth combination, but clearly two blue eyebrows!
Wakehurst is the English country estate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This window on the side of the building is peeking out over a vine clad roof.
This thatch roof home is in Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds, England. I see two close-set eyes framed with a carefully groomed head of thatch hair! (Of course, I also see an X shaped handle bar moustache…)
How about your house – what kind of face does it present? Ask a child to draw it – how do they see your house’s face?
This week’s WordPress.com Photo Challenge is Windows.
