Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week is WINDOWS.
The very large block of windows is at the new Learning Zone (aka known as a rebuilt school and College). They attracted me because of the reflections of the other houses and windows on the far side of the road across the car park and bit of grass. There are new windows over there, plus some rather lovely Victorian houses. The road there, which is one of the main roads out of town is very much an "all sorts" when it comes to architecture. Modern houses squeezed into odd plots and a wonderful terrace of Victorian houses, with gables, known locally as the "Twelve Apostles (there being 12 houses, of course!)
This little window, a complete contrast to the above, was taken in Bruges last year. I loved all the "extras" for what is really just an attic window. Most of the old houses there had decorated windows like this, and Bruges was a great place to go for window watchers! As well as people watchers, church lovers and chocoholics. Every other shop seemed to be a chocolate shop.
In fact, talking of windows, how about this for a drool-making window display?
