LOOKING THROUGH

Welcome to PICTURE PERFECT

Each week a theme will be posted up on Wednesday, and you are invited to put up your best picture with that theme in mind, it should be just

 ONE and ORIGINAL,

 not off the internet,

then post a comment on this page

so that everyone can link to your page and see your pic.

By all means mention your camera and lens used!

Open that page for viewing for all...and visit as many as you can!

The entries will close at midnight on Friday.

Have fun out there!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi ~ 2005
 
Windows,
our
portals to other worlds,
reminders of where we've been
 allusive visions of
where we couldn't go,
offering us a
safe haven from a harsh world
keeping us safe within,
a translucent
barrier between
heat and cold
pain or comfort
and as always,
the choice of whether
 to open it wide,
or just a little
or even
 keep it firmly closed,
is our choice entirely..

  58. whew, after a whole lot of effort - a mispost and a wrong turn... my "looking through" entry is posted.

    Heather, I love this shot - and looking at it now, I see the potential chaos of all those patterns and textures lol! You did great with it... I've never been very good at those :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. WOW what a great post. I've posted a pic but nothing that can compare with this.....

    ReplyDelete
  60. At first glance your image looks very simple but the more you look, the more you see. I like the gentle monochromatic colour. It is an intriguingly deceptive image. Great poem too.
    Mine is up.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  91. stunning. an image like this certainlt stirs the desires to GO THERE!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Sooooo TRUE !!!
    It's so sad that sometimes people just wanna shut themselves out from the world.
    Cos it's gonna be much more fun to just letting the window open wide, and embrace this life and its opportunities.
    This is a lovely post.
    I love the window. Wish to have one someday, in my home.
    Ehehehehehehehehehe... (^o^)v

    Have a fun weekend there.
