This weekly challenge is hosted by Dawn from ‘The Day After’ who invites participants to post pictures of any windows that they find curious, inviting, photogenic, or in some way tell a story. Visit her blog to see more windows and/or to join in with the challenge.
All windows and shutters taken in the Carouge district, Geneva.
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

Can’t beat those shutters for atmosphere, and instant identification of continental Europe. Great shots as always Jude.
Best wishes from Norfolk, Pete. x
Thanks Pete 🙂
Lovely sunny day here today, though getting dark now.
I love shuttered windows like this and always end up taking loads of photos of them and old doors and frames particularly from places like Crete and France. Seeing these here, which I love btw, makes me think I should have a go at this challenge as it looks rather fun 🙂
It is a good challenge to join in with if you have lots of window photos (as I have) be nice to see you there 🙂
Very atmospheric, Jude, nice one…
Thanks Sue 🙂
Great windows , love shutters !
Thanks Kathryn, they are so photogenic.
They are and sometimes functional : )
Oh yes! I’d love shutters on my windows instead of curtains.
This is gorgeous. A side of Geneva, I did not see. Thanks so much for posting. I like windows too, so here is my contribution:http://forestwoodfolkart.wordpress.com/2014/01/11/wordpress-weekly-photo-challenge-window/
It’s probably not on most tourists wish-lists, but well worth the journey as it is very pretty. Lots of courtyards and fountains too.
A lot of countries in continental Europe have fantastic windows on many of the buildings, a window photographers dream
This is true, especially the art nouveau period.
Awesome images, Jude. I love the look of derelict windows in photos, especially ones with shutters, even though I wouldn’t like to live like that. 🙂
Agreed. But the derelict ones (peeling paint, hanging off their hinges, rust) make the more interesting photos 🙂
I love how they each are in a diffident state of dress. Like there is a story to be told behind each window.
I’d love to have a look inside these rooms!
