30 windows at their best by 1x artists

by Susanne Stoop 


They protect against cold and heat - provided that you have closed the curtains or shutters. They keep the rain out, let the light and the sun in.

They give you an outlook into your surroundings, feed your curiosity - from the inside into the outside or from the outside into the inside.

They are transparent, they are blind. They mirror reflections, give us a glimpse of the inhabitants of a home and tell us stories about cosiness, happiness, creativity, melancholy, exuberance, solitude, loneliness and so on.

Moreover, windows can embellish a church, a facade an apartment building, a house. They can be secretive when dirt, curtains or reflections are blocking its functional transparency. At that moment they are most intriguing and trigger ones imagination.

They are with so many and each window looks different.

So I invite to have a look at thirty aspects of windows.

Yvette and Susanne: thank you for the wonderful selection of window pictures. I was very pleased to see my picture published among all the beautiful photographs you chose. In 2013, I entered the Metro Photo Challenge with this same picture, didn't win any prize, but my picture was published in the official contest magazine that year: Check page 40, if you want. I was also very happy then, just like I am now!
