A blog about books. Oh, and some other stuff too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

From Cheri Lucas Rowlands:

Windows are everywhere. Depending on where you are — your bedroom, your office, a hotel room, or a tiny tourism office overlooking a lively street in a beach town in the Dominican Republic, shown above — a window can reveal different things.

They are portals into the world’s stories. Glimpses into other people’s lives. Looking out (or into) a window can tell you about where you are — and where you’re not — and mark a particular moment in time, linking you to a physical place. Windows are also enablers of our daydreams and desires, and can stir up memories and big ideas.

THIS WEEK, IN A POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO WITH A WINDOW. Be sure to post your link to your site at the original post. 

It’s been a strange week for weather here in the country. Between freezing cold temperatures that has kept everyone indoors to icy rainstorms, deep snowfalls to warming temperatures of +9, we seem to have run the gauntlet of “4 seasons in one day” (apologies to Crowded House!).

When I woke up this weekend, I wandered out to the kitchen and, as per usual, glanced out the window to take stock of the day. Instead of my usual view of rolling hills, vast fields and a lovely sky above, there was …. nothing. I felt as if my entire home had been picked up and placed onto the moon. From each window there was a view of nothing – of the surreal nature of not really knowing what was out there, and just how far you could go without falling off the edge of the earth.



New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.


  1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter — we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
