I am a ‘bit’ behind in my photo challenges but since I had them sorted I insist on posting them. The weekly photo challenge topic last week was Windows and here’s my selection – hope you like. 🙂
Windows come in all shapes and sizes, with or without balconies and serve all kind of purposes.
As a showcase for art
Or marvel at the thick clouds rolling in from the mountains and wonder if your flight will be on time or perhaps even take off…
And then when the flight does take off, fret – why are all the rivers dry?
Yet, nowadays I find it more fun to look at windows rather than through windows.
The distorted images remind me of the masks and facades we wear all the time, sometimes even to our own selves.
Because of which we often miss the imminent meltdown until it is too late
Wallowing in our own selves, our vision blurred by our own tears we can no longer appreciate the beauty of the world that has been gifted to us.
It is up to us if we wish to focus on the crack, the skew, the distortion or the serenity of the mighty Ganga as she flows steady and sedate ready to meet her destiny and lose her self in the Bay of Bengal.
Sometimes it is imperative to draw the curtains on our own self and look beyond the self.
We must appreciate and count our blessings as we look out into the world secure and safe while others hang by a thread just so that their bellies are a little bit fuller.
But it is just possible that the overdose of philosophy may have made your life a tad bit more difficult and depressing. 😦
In that case there is only one thing to do…
Put on your most comfortable pair of shoes and go for a bit of window shopping! 😀 But wait, why just window shop? While out, loosen your purse strings, spend some dough and spread some cheer this festive season 🙂
Thank you for visiting – have a great weekend!
