Didn't get out much this week, and staying in didn't amount to anything either... except this whole idea of windows kept gnawing away at me. Last September we spent 4 weeks in the Baltics and Russia. Yes there were thousands of photos taken – many thousands! But there was one that has always been in the back of my mind. Was it of one of the many opulent interiors in St. Pete's or Moscow? Sure they were magnificent if not a commentary on where the wealth has always been in many countries. And there were hundreds of incredible stained glass windows where I got a couple of shots. Was it the brilliant domes on the churches and cathedrals everywhere we went? No, not them either. Most were held up by bandaids once you got closer to them, especially in the non urban centres.
Instead it was this one photo that got ingrained into my head. So today, not having a home window shot to use, I decided to play around with my favourite window, and probably one of my top ten fav shots out of thousands taken during that trip. It was a shot in a small town on one of the waterways we traversed... could have been Mandrogi or Kizhi Island... pretty sure it was Mandrogi.
Anyway, I thought it deserved some special treatment today, so I tossed in a little impressionism.
