Wavy Window, Delft

This is my 500th Weekly Photo. From the beginning, my goal was to post just one of my photos each week. I wanted to focus on the basics of art, design and composition. My hope was to encourage people to really look at the world around us, to notice the everyday seemingly humdrum parts as well as the flamboyantly beautiful and astonishing parts. Sometimes I have misgivings. Perhaps I should switch to a format that more directly promotes my artwork and my classes. But I'm still finding this wider range of images to be more compelling. Crafting the accompanying words has been an exercise in discipline and consistency. So today I offer to you the view through ripply handmade windowpanes in an 18th century house. It reminds me that it can be good to look at the world from a different angle, to consider the familiar or expected from a different viewpoint.
