My grandmother told me once that a city has enough windows for everybody. I still want to believe her - Story People

Lovely composition...it appears, too, that whoever is behind the window does not want uninvited visitors! :-)

Joop Zand said...

I like the colors very much Ash, also the composition is good.

Have a nice weekend.

Greetings, Joop

Wonderful colours - and I love the thought of a window for everyone.

The color of the wall is dazzling. The individual components are interesting and I like your composition.

Such a rich color. What really intrigued me was your grandmother's thoughts. I've tangled myself up in its meaning.

Intriguing window - the design and colours make me feel it is somewhere warm.;) Makes me dream of warm exotic places...

This is an eye catching snap. Lovely together with the caption

don said...

And what a fine window you chose to shoot. I especially like the blue surrounding area and the details in the window itself. Well done.

eden said...

Beautiful capture and words.

Have a great week.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shot. Nice colors.

Luke said...

That is a great blue!

ashok said...

a horrible green grill, dirty window panes, gaudy blue wall, disproportionate white band with a nail.....yet you have made the picture look beautiful !

Aroop Bose said...

Hi Ash,
Thank you very much for your New Year greetings. My good wishes to you.I am very happy to know that you have bookmarked our food blog.
Your latest photo is interesting, or let me put it differently,you took notice of this interesting subject which most people would have ignored. Where is this house anyway?

Jeevan said...

I always believe that life begins only outside the windows. I wonder how many windows are open today to fresh breeze in the city! Wonderful capture ash :)

Amrita - Thank you

Don - Thank you - I love that blue too. Goa is full of such gorgeous colourful walls.

Eden, Rajesh, Luke - Thank you

Ashok - Thank you. I just shoot what I see and like. When people like you find my work good - that makes it beautiful. Thank you so much!

Aroop - Thank you. This was taken in Goa. I suppose what made me notice it was the blue wall and the white/blue contrast. Glad you like it.

Jeevan - So so true!

Cloudia - Thank you and Namaste

Trotter said...

Ash said...

Thank you Gil. Much appreciated!

Jidhu Jose said...

sandeep said...

Emm said...

This is so beautiful but it reminded me of many cities where warfare and ethnic cleansing occurred in the last 20 years or so.

Siddhartha Joshi said...

Stunning!

Dominic Doherty said...

Another simple picture with beautiful colours and I like the way you framed it, with the window slightly off-centre.
I suppose I'm your latest follower :-)
