From the windows of my mind

From the outside looking out.

From the outside looking in - and back again.

From the outside - just looking.

From the outside looking at it all.


This is my contribution to James at Newtown Area Photo's meme called Weekend Reflections. Post a reflection during the week-end, log on to MckLinky via his site - and you're on.

Many ways of looking and all beautiful.

But now you've got me singing that song.

Good morning,
There are many ways to create PR for Microsoft, this was the most creative I ever have seen! Me, myself prefer Linux Ubuntu. Windows are presented very lovely by You, but the meaning of "Ubuntu" (African Zulu language) is intersubjective and empathic, like "You are and become only through others" - Can You visualize that meaning through Your lens? ;-)

(( klem ))

Barbara Martin said...

Lovely presentation of different views, Rune.

ChrisJ said...

Wonderful shots, Rune. I would never have thought to take these photos but you have the right photographer's eye!

Malyss said...

The first two pictures are so special, mixing in- and outside, YOUR view with THE view..But at the end of the post, I especially remember this white ball..Mind finds sometimes very strange ways..

Lara Neusiedler said...

excellent! the first two are confusing, and this makes them gorgeous! which is the reality they reflect? wonderful play, RunE!

John said...

Lovely faded colours on these old walls. Very Scandinavian.

becky at abbeystyle said...

Intriguing looks at this house's eyes to the world--loved the switchback at the end. You're a clever one :)

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Flott framvisning av innsyn og utsyn gjennom innsyn... :) God gammel årgang på vinduene. Ha en fin helg Rune! :)

Her startet det knallbra, dog litt kjølig, men det var sol ute... og klokken 14 var det over, da fikk vi tilbake vår "vanlige" sommer, med grå himmel og null sol.

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful, Rune! You have a great mind!! Hopefully are you okay and that this is not the reason that you can't blog next week! Good weekend!

Sylvia K said...

Terrific captures, Rune, as always and I love seeing things through the window of your mind! You are indeed very creative and I always look forward to your posts! Have a wonderful weekend!

A marvelous adventure. You've captured the essence of the old building. I love the details, the textures and the colors. And the reflections are first rate.

Scott said...

I love these. Just beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Carolyn Ford said...

I love old weathered paint and glass...especially red. I think the reflections are great in that they are bright on the bottom of the glass and dark at the top, possibly indicating that there is a window shade present. Very cool post, RuneE!

lynnwiles said...

Some would see an old building in disrepair, but you see the windows. I was surprised that you have yet to include a gallery of your window photos on your gallery site.

michael said...

That's a very clever metaphor for seeing, looking out, looking in and out. Nice photos, too.

Clytie said...

What fantastic shots of a weathered old building, complete with amazing reflections!!! I would absolutely love to explore there!

Reader Wil said...

Thanks. Have a great vacation with the family! You deserve it!

Beverley Baird said...

I love how you showed both views - inside and out! Great relections. Love the buildings as well!

leavesnbloom said...

I love this old rusty, peeling window frame and how you have been able to present it photographically. The rusty corrugated iron is a delight.

And the reflections, too ... of course ... *grin* ...

Greyscale Territory said...

Love all these alternative perspective! A wonderful old building that seems so much an intrinsic part of the rural scene!

EG Wow said...

Great reflections of the countryside in the windows. I like that you showed us the window from two different angles. Cool!

Dimple said...

Clever presentation, Rune! "From the outside looking out" made me chuckle!

Ann said...

Would you have a barn dance in this old thing? Or does the rust make it more romantic?

At least nobody broke the windows to ruin you photo taking,

Is your country feeling the heat too?

Oakland Daily Photo said...

The window reflections make me think about the road to "within."

Rinkly Rimes said...

I love them all, but the one with the white ball enlarged is my favourite. It makes one imagine....

Lew said...

Wondrful reflections! They are excptionally clear for what must be old glass. Interesting building with its variable width clapboard siding.

Anna said...

Interesting collection! Thanks for sharing. Anna :)

Irene said...

Furet, værbitt .... flotte bilder dette her! Har lagt merke til hvordan det gamle ofte fasinerer mer enn det nye her i fotoverden. Kanskje pga alle detaljene som finnes i dem? Ha en riktig god helg!

Xavi said...

Breathtaking captures, Rune!
I regret not having answered your kind comments earlier. Was traveling.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a nice weekend!

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Could be rural North Carolina. You would feel right at home here!

Dani said...

great great reflections. Nice series of a wonderful idea.

Thanks for sharing

Scott said...

It's me again. I had to come back and tell you that several people who commented on my "Monochrome Lake" post for Phun Phriday! wondered how it was done, so I posted a tutorial on it today. If you're interested just click here. Thanks for dropping by and your comment.

Serendipity said...

Wonderful series! I love the composition - and the vivid colours.

Woody said...

Great sequence! The peeling paint and rusty hinges really give this a rustic feel. The reflections are superb!

Mats Andersson said...

Vackra bilder från ett vackert gammalt hus.

Très belles couleurs ... Ca me plaît beaucoup, à moi aussi.

imac said...

Plenty Panes Rune.
Grand post my friend.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

wonderful - couldn't help thinking though - someone needs t do some sanding down and painting - not me nor you of course - we are too busy pointing our lenses at them.

Ken Mac said...

love the texture, and the rust

Melissa B. said...

I love these...Bravo!

Sara said...

I enjoyed this post and all the window views. What interested me also was that the wall is the same color and material both inside and out for that one window.

ANNA-LYS said...

came to think about it,
looks like the windows
in my forest hut.
You can see a little of
the window mirroring in the table
at the current post in my blog

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for your comment! No, of course you should never leave Bergen! If I were Norwegian, I would always stay in Norway. Have a great holiday!

Tine Berge said...

Old windows can be very beautiful! :)

Monicas Hage said...

Fascinerende:) God helg.

I hopped over here from Reader Wil. Such lovely photos. I love vernacular architecture therefore this small red wooden building had great appeal to me. Your shots were wonderful. -- barbara

Even old and shabby windows looks nice through your lens!

Hope you've had a great summer so far - and not too much rain :-)

RennyBA said...

Fascinating and well composed - all of them together! I've been scrolling up and down in the post to see the details in the first pic and the overview in the last - very nice captured Rune!

The Cowgirl said...
