Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while,
or the light won't come in. ~Alan Alda
I must have stared at hundreds of windows over the past week or two. But, choosing one to photograph felt like choosing a personality...an outfit to wear for the day...or a political party. So many times, I would discount a particular window because it felt too corporate, too ordinary, to clean, too dirty. Then I pulled beside a local school and noticed these blue windows. Even though the building itself seems rather uniform, I felt like these windows brought the school to life. Perhaps these windows are also a reflection of how I see myself.
I'd much rather see myself as these pretty blue windows captured by DorteF. I love how personality is pouring out of these windows' soul. It leaves me curious about the type of people that live behind these walls, which brings me back to making assumptions. Alan Alda's quote above is spot on. Every once in a while we've got to scrub off our assumptions to get a fresh perspective on the world, and perhaps see even ourselves in a different light.
Until next time,
