Windows to Another World

We have seen many beautiful windows throughout the years, from the stained glass of cathedrals to the shimmering windows of modern skyscrapers. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Windows, so we decided to use some photos that we have taken in the past few weeks. Obviously the beautiful windows that adorn the cathedrals and churches throughout the world deserve special attention as the details are spectacular, but there is something special about a reflection in the windows of a modern building climbing towards the heavens that deserves equal attention. We have chosen a photo from here in Frankfurt that we took on our way to the train station where the sky was amazing and the windows captured it perfectly. If you look closely, you can even imagine the tower as a candle with a flame glowing from its rooftop.

We found the chocolates in Vienna to be very special and this window is a tribute to children around the world dreaming of a confectioners fantasy.
