Windows offer a challenging way to frame shots. Sometimes the results are lovely, as in the photo below.
Pacific Ocean view, from a window in North Head Lighthouse, Ilwaco, WA
Because many of my photos are taken in natural settings, I often frame with flora to add dimension.
Suffused sunset view from Beach Haven, to West Beach and Waldron Island, WA
Megler/Astoria bridge, view from Fort Columbia State park, WA
Sunrise at Crescent Creek, OR
Another challenging way to add interest, is to use natural and manmade frames.
Anacortes Ferry Landing, WA
Driftwood at Long Beach, WA
Structures and walkways often provide lines that direct our eyes to the subject as in the photo below.
Marina at Port of Ilwaco, WA
For this challenge I looked back through my archives to photos taken long ago, and stored on an older computer. Thank you Amy, for a prompt that took me into the “way back machine”!
Very nice photos – I especially like the first window looking outside!
Thank you, Tatiana!
Fabulous selections, Lindy! Each has a beautiful and unique way to frame the scene. Love the first one, I feel like I was there looking out the window. Both natural and manmade are well used to frame the images. Thank you!
Thank you, Amy. As I mentioned, this challenge got me looking back into photos from prior to my blogging. Nice little walk down memory lane!
I, too, love to back into photo archives. 🙂 Thank you for sharing with us, Lindy! 🙂
A beautiful sequence Lindy, I especially love the view through the lighthouse window in the first image 🙂💖 xxx
Thank you, Xenia. Love pats to Eivor and Pearl!
Eivor and Pearl say thank you Lindy! 🤗🐾💖🐾 xxx
A varied and absolutely lovely gallery, Lindy! The first and the fifth one especially speaks to me. Vertical and horizontal – very alike but very unlike. The Fort Columbia is so soothingly beautiful.
Thank you, Leya! Love your post – the feature photo especially, and the Ferris wheel – oh my!
Thank you, Lindy! A lovely challenge with so many opportunities!
Great choices. That first one, the window, is superb.
Thank you, John. That one seems to be the crowd favorite!
All lovely. I especially like the first one.
All great examples Lindy but the opening window (pun intended) is outstanding
Lovely looks at your framed memories, Lindy. Many wonderful moments. I’ll join the crowd with expressing my love of the lighthouse capture. 🙂
Very nice series. I particularly like the industrial atmosphere in the last one.
