W is for Window

Well, this Wednesday it's W week over at ABC Wednesday, where wondrous folks write or photograph their heart's desires and wish to share. Won't you want to go enjoy the wit and whoopee?

While wandering my way through Bucharest these past working weeks, I've witnessed a myriad of wonderful windows. 

Let me present to you just ten today. [Click image to enlarge.]

Some windows I notice for their lovely shape...


Others for their retro design...


I found windows nearly enveloped...


 And many with exotic style...


Apartment windows embellished with the zodiac signs...


And windows that glow from within...


Some windows are cute, yet just too small for my taste...


Then some windows intrigue me for what peeks out from them...


Other windows make me wonder what's inside...


And still other windows fascinate me only for what they reflect...


But perhaps the window that means the most to me are not made of glass at all... they are your eyes, the window to your soul.

Delightful post. I think you should do a book about windows of the world.
The eyes definitely are the windows of the soul.

Brilliant post. What a lot of variety you discovered (and very creative to see all of the opportunities for how to present the different windows)

What a lovely post! You've got a very interesting and beautiful series of windows! I am afraid our windows are just squares of glass with here and there a curtain or plants behind them.

Your Windows are all special in one way or another, and most of the buildings have fine ornaments ;-)
Great photos, indeed!

These are amazing photos of windows! Each one is so interesting and unique to look at :) I'm so amazed (and a bit envious) that you saw these in person and photographed them yourself!
