Out the Window

It was a day for looking out the window!




Carmi wants scenes performing
outside your windows
so grab your camera and begin shooting

Out the Window!


I'm excited to see out your windows too,
 so I hope many of
you join this thematic photographic delight at Carmi's blog here.


Window number one!
Beginning from home.



"Set wide the window, let me drink the day."
Edith Wharton
(Even if it's grey)



Out our front door!



Believe it or not, I just shoveled our deck and the snow is still falling!



Upstairs looking outside! 





But baby it's so cold/grey outside today.


How about some color?




Hello from girl's day at the salon.


Here are a few out the window from Minneapolis.
I'm driving to downtown.
(Before winter)



The next two are from my oldie but goodie files
 for my work in progress with ghost stories from Minnesota!



"People are trapped in history and history is trapped in people."
James A. Baldwin
Ghost writers can set them free.



"Nothing in life is to be feared.
It is only to be understood."
Marie Curie

The photo below is shooting outside a window from inside the 
Weisman Art Museum



"There are two ways of spreading light,
 to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
Edith Wharton

So don't fear shadows,
 because there's light shining from somewhere.
Take good care of you!

Oh, are you writing a Minnesota ghost story book? Count me in to review it! The only kind of ghost stories I read are the classic, local folklore kind. Minnesota is near and dear to our hearts, second only to the UP of Michigan. Hugs.
P.S. I loved this post. You capture things well in image and word. Thank you, my friend.

Living out west, in my youth up to raising my OWN family, I don't wanna see any more snow out my window. Ever. LOL

Love the colorful girl day out. And did you say ghost stories? Oh.......I'm anxious to see what this is about. Sounds awesome.

Great collection, Karen with two brilliant 'oldies'.

Your snowy out-the-window is much like my own, but I confess to being entranced by your ghostly window views.
