Window on St Peters

Windows are everywhere. Depending on where you are — your bedroom, your office, a hotel room, or a tiny tourism office overlooking a lively street in a beach town in the Dominican Republic, shown above — a window can reveal different things.

They are portals into the world’s stories. Glimpses into other people’s lives. Looking out (or into) a window can tell you about where you are — and where you’re not — and mark a particular moment in time, linking you to a physical place. Windows are also enablers of our daydreams and desires, and can stir up memories and big ideas.

This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo with a window, say Cheri Lucas Rowlands at the Daily Post.

This photo was taken on a balmy summer evening from inside one of my favourite restaurants. It is looking across the green at the Norman Cathedral of St Peter, here in Exeter. There can be few better views to enjoy while waiting to be served and the photo – with my phone – doesn’t do it justice, so you’ll have to imagine the rest or search my tags for other posts about the cathedral!
