A Window Stained With Colour

You may have noticed  that the header on my blog changes frequently. The change can depend on the season, holidays, current travel or just because.  When it's a holiday or travel destination the choice is fairly easy but what to do during those times between?

Fortunately the internet is a constant source of material - that and friends share moments of their lives which they have captured.  My friend Elizabeth and I met through a picture I had taken of a wine shop window in Rome - don't ask! - and over the past seven years we have shared stories and pictures through our blogs and Facebook.  Recently she posted a simple picture of a window in her home.  Simple but it captured, for me at least, those first days of winter.  The frost is on the window, the trees are almost bare of leaves, the light looks filtered through gray, and possibly stormy, clouds yet it still picks up the glow of a few of the pitchers and vases she has collected.

As I look at this one of my thoughts is:  time to be put the kettle on for a nice cup of hot tea to fight the coming cold. 

Thanks for sharing Elizabeth.

December 2 -  1991; Canada and Poland become the first nations on earth to recognize the independence of Ukraine from the Soviet Union.

There are so many fabulous photographers on the internet! It's always a visual feast.

I am all for frequent headers - and a nice hot cup of tea as well.

Yes, that's a ravishing professional shot alright - a statement of colour within v very nearly black and white outside.
