My ( pommepal ) Pauline has encouraged me to put my photos of windows in Dawns windows post. I have been looking in on Dawns blog ” The Day After.” at the windows collection she hosts and it drew my attention to windows.
I belonged to a photo group run by a professional photographer, Al Sweet a talented, generous man capable at passing on his knowledge. He gave the group assignments to be shown at the next meeting and we would discuss the pros and cons of the photos.
We did a different subject every month. Everything from letter boxes to churches. The one on windows I decided to think a bit outside the square and did shop windows with all their vast array of subject matter.
The thing is about this exercise it gets one looking and seeing through the eyes of other people. We start to see how people see things differently to each other. When we understand the way others see things we learn and grow.
These windows are in a church designed by a convict. Hobart is the second oldest city in Australia and much of the architecture was built by convict labour.
