Thursday’s windows


Sandra Conner’s ongoing challenge, “Thursday’s Windows,” inspired me to post a few of my window photos.

Here are the pretty windows at Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca, designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie ‘Casablanca’.

And here are some of the most recognisable windows in the world, albeit a bit blurry.

Here at the ‘New Sun Hong Kong’ restaurant in San Francisco, it’s not so much about the windows, as the decoration around them.

The windows at the Salem Witch Museum in New England, are really lovely.

Last but by no means least are the hundreds of windows in the Chrysler Building, New York. I wonder if the outsides ever get cleaned? I’m so glad it’s not my job. :)

  1. Excellent all… I love the Salem Witch Museum very much. The rest are fab too an nothing touches that Chrysler Building… ;-)

  2. You have varied sorts of windows in here. :-) I think I still prefer to look at the world through those old fashioned windows, though the modern glass ones are a good for a regular change of pace. :-)

  3. I am the window cleaner in our house so I am glad we don’t live in one of those, although Rick’s is OK ;)

  4. Plenty of windows there to choose from. I was thinking which ones I’d like to be looking out of the most. I think the windows at the top of the Chrysler Building must afford quite a view but as San Francisco is a city I’d like to see, the New Sun Hong Kong would be a fun place for lunch. Very nice collection Sylvia. :-)

    • Thanks, Adrian. I was reading that there is a dentist practice right at the top of the Chrysler Buildiing. It would be worth going for a dental check up, just for the view. :)

  5. Lovely windows AD ;-)
    I would dearly love to go visit Rick’s cafe in Casablanca – that’s me and my dude’s movie that ;-)

  6. I think, in my wild imagination, I can take a challenge of cleaning a window from great heights …. for maybe 5 minutes only. Hehehehe. Just one window, one quick sweep. What a thought you injected in my mind.

    And what’s that second window, again? Windows of opportunity are way popular than that.

  7. These are absolutely wonderful! Thank you for sharing all of them. I can’t decide which one I like best, but I THINK the New Sun Hong Kong Restaurant wins.

    Also, your pingback came up on my post for this week, but you don’t have anything showing with your name and gravatar in the comments section. I’m not sure if you did not post there or if it did not come through. One of the readers had a problem with that last time, and I asked him to try re-posting. That worked. You might want to do that if you want people to be able to see who you are.

    Thanks for taking part.

      • Yes, they posted just fine. And please don’t feel that you HAVE to post your link as a “comment.” I just wanted you to know that nothing was showing up except the pingback in case it mattered to you. One man’s post did that last time too, even though he had actually posted a whole comment and I had replied. It did not show up until he re-did it. The pingbacks will work as a link, but they don’t give people the gravatar to look at and sometimes I think they sort of get lost among the comments with the little pictures. Some people don’t click on the pingbacks as much as they do if they see the little picture too — and maybe a comment. I just didn’t want anyone to miss your great pictures.
