CFFC: The World of Windows

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is must start with W and have at least two vowels. This would have been another toughie but for the fact that I am on a trip to Udaipur, the City of Lakes in Rajasthan India. And I have loads and loads of windows just from the City Palace.

Ready?

Off we go…

Open windowsOpen, closed and designer windows. City Palace from the outside

Open WA view of the City Palace from inside from one window of the other windows. But to be honest, I took it because of the tree which was even more interesting on a closer look. But you’ll have to wait before she makes a appearance of her own πŸ˜€

The City Palace complex is the private property of Shreeji Arvind Singh Mewar,Β the 76th custodian of the Mewar Dynasty. He resides in one part of the huge palace complex while two parts are converted into luxury hotels. One part is open for the public. But let’s not get distracted and continue our search for windows.

Elong WAn elongated window to look out but not be seen – a common motif in most windows, although shapes and designs may differ.

Sq WA square window.

Design WAnother view of the world. Beautiful workmanship no doubt but may give a sense of being imprisoned don’t you think?

One window to anotherAhh a breath of fresh air and uninterrupted view of the world of windows from a window πŸ˜€

CityThere were open windows overlooking the city of Udaipur, or

Lake WEnjoy the serene calm waters of Lake Pichola.

Fine netA view of the fine meshed windows and the colorful shrubbery was an added bonus.

Sun windowAnd talking of bonuses, a final Sun window over the stairway at the hotel.

Thanks for visiting – do leave me a note so that I may check out your selections too πŸ™‚

  1. Dahlia! I was struck by the contrast between the open unmeshed window and the covered meshed windows, thank you! Also, the contrast between looking OUT from the meshed window and looking IN. It’s so interesting how we get used to seeing something from one viewpoint and don’t even imagine the other. If I were only looking at the palace windows from the outside, those windows would seem impenetrable. But from the inside, you can see the (limited) view, light, and everything outside. πŸ™‚ Good reminder for other things in life, yes? πŸ™‚ Loved the tree comment. That’s so you, Dahlia! πŸ™‚

      1. I know! We have people in my neighborhood who have a barrier “screen door” on their front door, a steel door with tiny mesh openings so you can see out but it’s almost impossible to see in. For intruders, I guess. I think it’s a little sad, but I guess it makes them feel comfortable. (We don’t have any crime here to speak of except the occasional car prowl…luckily!)
