Lovely Lisbon Windows

Lisbon’s windows are full of character. I had to stop myself from taking thousands of window pictures. Here’s a small selection of them, each one very different:

A Lingering Look At Windows: Wonky Reflections

I love reflections, and the way the windows on the one side of this building distort those on the other side caught my eye on an otherwise exceedingly dull grocery shopping trip this Tuesday.

And, of course, they make a perfect entry for Dawn’s weekly photo challenge 🙂

A Lingering Look At Windows: Reflections & Dinginess

Toledo has an endless supply of rustic (or should that be rusty?) windows. Here’s my contribution for Dawn’s Lingering Look At Windows photo challenge:

A bit sinister, this one… the iron grate, ugly though it may be, struck me as unusual

A Lingering Look At Windows: Seen Better Days

This weeks’ contribution to Dawn’s A Lingering Look At Windows features another couple of windows from Toledo, this time of the run-down variety. OK, make that even more run down than usual.

OK... it WAS once a window, but cut me some slack here...

Toledo Through A Window

Last weekend, I was able to take these photos, thanks to my lovely new friend Lorena, who provided me with me access to an historic building’s ‘turret room’. Totally worth huffing and puffing all the way up there!

This is my entry to this week’s A Lingering Look At Window’s photo challenge laid on by Dawn.

Usually, participants post pictures of intriguing and fancy windows from the outside, but today, just for a change, I’m approaching the task from the inside out, giving you a glimpse at the beautiful city of Toledo framed by a window.

A Lingering Look At The World’s Smallest Window!

I’m not usually one for blowing my own bugle quite so unashamedly, but my entry to this week’s A Lingering Look At Windows photo challenge seriously rocks. In my opinion, anyway.

Without further a do, let me give it to you: The World’s Smallest Window, according to the Guinness Book of Records (though, I admit, I’ve not double-checked this factoid):

Here it is, with my friend Reyes, who works as a guide in Toledo

It has a proper window cross and everything. Don't ask me what the Arabic inscription means, I haven't the foggiest.

It’s not just a hole in the wall, it has a proper window cross and everything. Don’t ask me what the Arabic inscription means, I haven’t the foggiest.

The embarrassing thing is that this little gem is less than 400 yards from my house, and I’d never noticed it until last Tuesday, when Reyes gave me a free tour!
