Windows No Doors


~Little Red Shed in October~

Little Red Shed is a photo that I dusted off. It was first featured *here.* There's just something about those windows... (ISO 100, exposure 1/250, aperture 2.8 — information taken from Picasa Web Album) 

~atmospheric~

I love my own windows. This has been my view for the last few days: rain, rain, rain. (The setting was A (aperture priority, yet I do not know the aperture as Picasa was no help this time), ISO 100, shutter speed 1/125, and I used the tripod.) It's a pretty accurate representation of the day so I put a frame on it and called it good enough. I had hoped to go out somewhere looking for doors and windows again, weather permitting. It didn't. (The door photo in my header was a practice shot. Nondescript practice shot.) 

Linking with Donna at A Personal Photo Challenge. This month's theme is Windows and Doors. Maybe you have some in your files that you'd like to share with us. 

Thanks to Donna for hosting at this busy and intense time for Jim and herself. (I'm kind of hoping that she won't be seeing this one. ☺)

Love Vee

  1. Vee, the red shed is lovely - very old and a bit precarious perhaps - kind of place one should enjoy looking at but maybe not entering! Like the reflections in the windows - makes it less ominous!

    Nice idea NOT to lighten your room photo - the feeling of the rainy day before the lights are turned on make it rather mysterious.

    Enjoy the weekend - I do hope the rain has stopped by now.

  2. I was drawn in here today by the thumbnail for this post on my dashboard. I just LOVE places like this. For whatever reason, they speak to me. I have been that way since I was a little girl.

  3. Love it! It reminds me of the "Tumbleweed Tiny Houses" that I've become very interested in. This makes me want to move to the country. Great job!

  4. Beautiful pictures - I really must learn more about my camera! Your headers are always so pretty Vee. Hope the sun is shining today....

  5. The red shed is interesting in how it is braced on the slope. What I find most amazing about it, being an old building, none of the windows are broken. It certainly has a presence about it.
    Too bad you're on the inside looking out with all the rain but you have a unique set of windows and bookcases built in to the wall. An enviable set up, compared to our modern and predictable plain windows in the middle of a wall.

  6. I love the windows that have the panes in them. I think your new windows are so perfect for your home. The little red shed looks like something that would be extra special to find. Did you get to see the inside?

  7. I love the little red shed with the reflections in the windows. I also love your windows. I hope you get sunshine today. And I'm hoping we get rain today.
    Have a great weekend!

  10. I adore the red shed! Old buildings like that sore do have character. The red color really adds to the composition. And the second image has a cozy, rainy day kind of feeling. Love them both, Miz Vee.

  11. Neat old building.
    I see lots of them around here.

  12. I love the old red shed. There is a story there for sure and your window on a dreary day makes me want to curl up with an afghan and a cat on my lap and read a book.

  13. I like your room...and your lovely windows...even in the shadows of rainy days.

    What a lovely old red shed. Glad you posted it for us again, esp. since I didn't see it the first time.

  15. That's one photogenic red shed. Love the placement of the windows, so symmetrical. The rainy day photo just looks like autumn to me (and that's okay since you've had virtually no summer, just spring leaking into autumn.) I do love dark rainy days (but not all summer) and your photo illustrates the delight of staying cozy indoors while rain drips.

  16. I love the old red shed! It's a beauty and a great photo too. And your windows on a rainy day say it all - dark and gloomy. The sun is actually shining a bit here this afternoon. I hope it's making an appearance there too.

  17. I love pictures of windows. When I was young I had a poster in my apartment of windows from Ireland (I think it was Ireland). I just adored that poster. Great photos here, Vee- xo Diana

  18. I love both your photos, Vee. Your view looking out is pretty. We pretty much had rain every day for spring/summer. It's been dry the last 3 weeks now. Wishing you a good evening and a blessed Sunday.

  19. Beautiful photos!

    I love seeing old buildings and imagining life as it was when people lived there.

    I can understand how a barn or shed would no longer be used but there have been houses abandoned and left for the elements to tear down that sparks my imagination. There is a story there...

  20. The little red shed is so picturesque! Makes me want to go inside and sit a spell. And I always enjoy looking out from your windows. To me, a house needs lots of windows with something to check on from each one! You did great meeting the challenge! Sweet hugs!

  21. Ooh, I love that little red shed, and I love your windows too despite the rain. I wish we were getting some as we could use a bit more than we got. I do see it in the forecast for next week.

  22. I like the last shot, the dark inside the light and rain outside.

  23. What a fabulous shed...and you do it justice! I love the triangular placement of the windows, and I love that glass! (Is it old, wavy glass as it appears?)

    Of course, I've told you many times how much I love your windows. I think I'd find myself just gazing outside, rain or shine. (Mostly rain though, huh? Blah.)

  24. I really like both photos! I like seeing what it looks like from your view point and also a red shed....how fun!

  25. Love your photos Vee.
    And thanks for visiting mine also!
    It was good to have a little read of some of your recent posts.
    I like the sound of that book.
    I also like the look of that pumpkin molasses cookie recipe..yum.

  26. Love your photos! There's definitely something special about windows. Paned windows are my favorite... such personality!

    You've become a master of photography Vee. But maybe you shouldn't try to change John to a Duck Dynasty character. Just sayin'...

    Blessings & hugs, Edie Marie

  27. Hi Vee,
    Firstly, great to meet you through the PPC, I'm loving, the challenge itself and meeting new bloggers is the icing on the cake. I love your atmospheric shot of your own view. What a wonderful space. The lighting makes you really stare hard at the photo, almost like wanting to turn a light on to see the detail but then that's the beauty of it, the mystery. A beautiful job. I'm looking forward to next months, so many different options.
    See you soon.

  28. I just realised Vee, our paths must have crossed before as when I went to follow on Google I was already signed in. I'm rubbish! Anywhooo, great to see you again :-)

  29. The color of the popular red shed is one I love to use with acrylics. There are so many reds in the paint spectrum I could just paint reds all day. I liked this theme.

  30. This building is so pretty --it looks a little like a mill of some sort? I like it's burgandy color.

    It rained all week here in epic proportions, Vee. An area of Colorado the size of Connecticut flooded. It has been unbelievable! I hope and pray it is all over now. I feel so fortunate we did not have any problems and I hope the weather returns to normal this week. It's been one exhausting week!

    1. I can only imagine, Pat. We are blessed to have "normal" rain and not rain of biblical proportions. Still praying for Colorado.

  31. Oh Vee
    your home photo is really interesting - influenced by the weather outside.
    Lovely windows which seem to have an extra set at the top!
    I've only just posted - running late today!
