Among the 3,000+ photos I’ve taken in the past couple of years are many of windows. Maybe it’s because the places I’ve lived tended to have inefficient windows that collected condensation, and therefore refracted the light in interesting ways, but it’s been a rich source of subject matter. Recently I got wind of a deal on metal photo prints, something I’ve been wanting to experiment with, so I’m having these window photos reproduced on individual 8” x 8” aluminum squares.
I plan to assemble them, block-quilt style, into one large piece, which I’ll share here when it’s finished.
While I was choosing, cropping, and cleaning up the photos for this project I was hampered by the fact that in several photos the windows were filthy. Which left distracting specks in the photos. It took me a long time to get rid of those specks, a metaphorical lesson of sorts: wash your “windows” now or spend many precious hours of your life repairing the mess later!
