Dartmouth has an inner harbour, known locally as the Boat Float. It’s a listed building, dating from around 1600, as enclosed moorings. There are many windows, each interesting in their own way, that offer stunning views over the Boat Float and the river Dart.
Michelle at the Daily Post shares a photo of a harbour through a window in Brindisi, have a look and maybe share one of your own.

Windows, a town creeping up a hill – and a slouching One! Quite a haul. And how have you got b&w with two spots of colour?
What a lovely building! And a lovely snow scene too! We have more in common than I often think 🙂 🙂
The building (York House) is also listed (1893) and is even prettier on the other side with more decorative elements. I took a photo of it on my visit to Dartmouth in April, but I didn’t know about the Boat Float!
Hmmph! Now you tell me! When’s it going to be my turn? 🙂 🙂
What? To be listed? You’re not that old Jo 😛
Tee Hee! I should be so unlucky! 🙂 🙂
I have never heard of a harbour / quay being registered as a listed building before! At first I thought you were referring to that lovely B&W building in the background until I looked it up. Now I realise that you are talking about all the windows in all those buildings which overlook this historic enclosed mooring, known as the Boat Float. Clever! And yes, how did you manage to get those bits of colour in your image?
I like it!
Great shot, Gilly. I like the bent man almost as much as those windows. Who’s going to clean them all, though? 😅
Don’t know how you achieved the effect / pastel on bnw, but it looks great Gilly. Interest history there and the windows all shapes and sizes!
Very nice, and I agree with some of the other commenters that I really like the way you have edited this photo.
It’s a terrific shot. I love the touch of yellow in a sea of black and white.
Hey Gilly .. wonderful image. A grand building 🙂
