As I've mentioned before, I try to choose a theme for each trip that I take -- something I photograph consistently which gives my collection of photos from the trip some shape. On a recent trip to Austria and Germany, that theme was windows.
I focused on what could be seen through windows...
... as well as the windows themselves.
This image shows the smokestacks of the crematorium at Mauthausen, a concentration camp.
They are reflected in the windows of one of the barracks where the prisoners lived.
I sat outside these windows in Salzburg and listened to a chamber orchestra rehearse.
I love the fanciful plaster work on these windows.
And the flowers were all in bloom -- everyone had window boxes.
Even broken windows somehow look prettier in Austria.
A note: I used a tool called Poladroid to turn my photos in to Polaroids. I learned about Poladroid from Teacher Meets World. She blogged about how to install and use Poladroid here!
