Windows, flowers, birds – Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

This weeks challenge asks:

Your inspiration this week is windows. Use a window to frame your shot. Show us what you see out the window from the place where you usually blog, use a window to give structure to your photo, or make a window itself your subject.

To get more creative, use the glass in a window to add texture to your photo. And if you feel like being metaphorical, go for it! Share an image focused on someone’s eyes (the windows to the soul, dont’cha know), or of a landscape or piece of art that’s like a window to another world for you.

Well I’m editing photos from this years visit to the lake district at the moment, and I noticed this one, a window within a window, and some pretty flowers to go with it.  Obviously not a place I blog from, however I do tend to use a photo from whatever the current set of photos I am working on is to blog.  And in this case the window may be the subject, but it also frames the inner shot.

This was taken at Blackwell the arts and crafts house, well worth a visit.
