Painting St Ives

All these images were taken through the windows of the café located on the roof of the Tate, St Ives. A slight glass distortion effect has been applied. The reflections are original 🙂

Gilly of Lucid Gypsy posted similar images from her recent visit to St Ives. I’m beginning to get the glimmer of an idea for a challenge here.

A Lingering Look at Windows #22

There are many ways to photograph the town of Ludlow from Whitcliffe Common – castle views, church views, town views framed by the trees or not.

Zooming in on the old town shows you the undulating rooftops, the multitude of chimney pots of varying shapes and sizes, and even a window or two.


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.
