Monday Window: Beverley

Admittedly, it’s not the windows but rather the painted ceiling that’s the main point of interest here in this image from St. Mary’s church in Beverley, East Yorkshire. However, they are quite impressive in their own right….

Monday Window: Sarlat

Above a narrow alleyway in the picturesque town of Sarlat, in the Dordogne, is this old and elaborately decorated window.

Monday Window – Bonnefont

Even by local standards, the small settlement of Bonnefont is well off the beaten track, albeit only about twenty minutes away by car.

It’s worth the trip, though, if only for this exceptionally photogenic old window.

Monday Window: Abbaye de la Reau

Who’d be a window cleaner here at Abbaye de la Reau?

Monday Window Tranquility Base (again)

Q: When is a window not a window?

A: When it used to be one.

This outbuilding of one of the usually unoccupied houses here in Tranquility Base has seen a lot of re-purposing over the years. The shuttered window obviously used to be a door and there are the phantom vestiges of two other windows.

Monday Window – Nantes

Regular viewers of these weekly posts may have noticed that I alternate between religious and secular windows. On this particular Monday it’s time for a massive display of stained glass, here ifrom the recently refurbished cathedral in the city of Nantes.

Monday Window – Confolens

An obviously restored but none the less accomplished stained glass window from the medieval church in the town of Confolens. If you look closely it is possible to see that it wasn’t actually in situ, but rather was resting on the wooden floor, propped up against a wall.

Monday Window – Tranquility Base

Just over 50 yards from our house in the little hamlet that I refer to as Tranquility Base is this small window in – for want of a better word – a shed. It belongs to a couple who spend the summer here (although not in the shed).

Does anybody else see the resemblance to a cartoonish human face?

Monday Window: Bruges

Although this window is part of the edifice of one of the grandest buildings in Bruges, it’s a little surprising to find it at the end of a very narrow and nondescript alleyway.
