Monochrome Windows

Trees and masts all grow in the windows around here. The ship is (of course) Statsraad Lehmkuhl.



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at Monochrome Weekend.

Wow, that is certainly something you don't see reflected in windows around here where I live. :)

Stilig bilde og flott utsnitt, og at Lehmkuhls mast kommer fram så god fram likte jeg, det piffet opp bildet.

Formally framed reflections...what a find! Like art hanging in a gallery:)

Spiderdama said...

Stilig bilde og flott refleksjon!

Gunsside said...

Dette var stlilig, kult når man får til refleksjonen sånn ;)

Carver said...

I love the reflection of the tree and mast. They go together so well. Also the geometric bricks and windows make such a crisp image.

Anne-Berit said...

Kjempeflott,Rune:)

Dina said...

I'd love to have that mast growing in my window.
You can see a lot of similarity between trees and masts they way you have presented them.

Dagrun said...

Bedre refleksjon hos deg. Men to vinduer ja. Tøft bilde, Rune. Du er god på s/hv nyanser.

Jeg har klart å få feber... kjipt i ei helg, men men.

Irene said...

Stilig! Bildet løftes av refleksjonen i vinduene! Bra fanget!

RennyBA said...

Great shot - is it Christian Radich reflection in the window?

Anne said...

Å hælle dussan noe så godt obervert, som to helt foskjellige bilder i samme innramming jo :-)

Mama Zen said...

What a marvelous catch!

Samson said...

Agree with carver, great shot

Dimple said...

I like this because I don't think of trees and masts being close enough together to be reflected in adjacent windows...
Nice catch!

Abraham said...

Those look like the original windows, made with aluminum, on our house. Sure was happy to replace them a few years ago.

I like the reflection.

michael bird said...

Just super, Rune. If I had my druthers, I'ld take a ride on the masted vehicle.

Gallow said...

You could also submit this one to James' Weekend Reflection. lol. I like the modern windows contrasted by an older technology of the mast, and then yet another contrast between nature and man made materials. Nice work.

Fabulous!

Marka said...

Is the tree aspiring to become a mast on a ship?

lynnwiles said...

You just have a way with windows and these are not that old. I see a book entitled "Windows of Bergen" in your future.

Ann said...

How unusual, a tree next to a ship.

We have a similar ship called Spirit of advernture. I don't think I have enough spirit to go on a training ship. I was on a short catemaran trip, and I felt sick sick.

Nydia said...

It's like a collage from different windows, so weird the mix is!
Super-cool mono photo, could be framed!

Kisses from Nydia.

A fantastic idea and an amazing shot, thanks for sharing!
:-)

Barbara Martin said...

Great shot of framed reflections, RuneE.

ChrisJ said...

I think you have a camera in your head instead of eyes. Such a great shot!

ArneA said...

Savnet statsraaden på fjorden i går

Petra said...

This is a great composition, RuneE, I like it very much. You are a good observer, no doubt about it. :-)
I had a look at that link leading to «Statsraad Lehmkuhl» and found it really interesting. I love these old ships full of sails and to participate in such a training can be a real lifelong experience!

JM said...

What a fantastic composition! Love this shot!

Dragonstar said...

The more I look at this the more thought-provoking I find it. The regular grid of the wall itself is strange to me, and then you have the reflections of the tree and the mast - I feel that each is dreaming of the life of the other :)
Excellent.

Carolyn Ford said...

Wow! A scene for each window and a perfect shot too! Wonderful, RuneE!

Birgitta "foto CHIP" said...

Det var ett annorlunda och ett kreativt bidrag - det gillar jag - man liksom stannar upp och vill betrakta :)

Coffeeveggie addict. said...

wow,your windows tells a lot...very nice reflection...

awarewriter said...

Very thoughtful image. I like your reflections as well (I wouldn't want him snapping his too big teeth at me either).

Thanks for dropping by The Aware Writer. I agree and prefer the first image myself.

Paulie said...

Good catch!

EG Wow said...

How interesting that the reflections are so different from each other!

Johnny Nutcase said...

how cool is that! I love that there are two totally different scenes going on in this photo, really nice!

Anna said...

Nice reflections also!
Anna :)

James said...

These contain three things that I'm very interested in at the moment, four if you count photography. Reflections,windows, and black and white. I really like the way each window contains it's own and very different reflection. Nicely shot Runee! The brick pattern also adds a nice element.
