Framed in Photohunt

I have just discovered a photography meme called Photohunt. The site host suggests a new theme each week and asks photographers to submit pictures that represent this theme. When I heard that today’s prompt was ‘Framed’, I knew just which pics would be my choice.

My husband and I are repeatedly drawn to
buildings that have been emptied of their
people and their things. The resulting spaces
revert to silent, moody shrines that resonate
with memories of days past.

When we came across this small house on a sunny day, I was fascinated by the way
its many windows framed the overgrown yard outside.
Against its pale empty walls, each window seemed to turn into a kind of art piece.
Bereft of people and trashed by passers-by, the house still managed to hang on to a
quiet dignitiy and a unique kind of beauty that soothed me, and made me grateful for stopping by to visit...

To view more 'Framed' photos, do visit Photohunt at the link're sure to enjoy the visit. My great thanks to out host!

Oh my, you have found the PERFECT connection for showing your photos. I love these views through windows. The yard looks so untamed and wonderful, I want to LIVE there! Green out every window. This is SO COOL, Lynette! Just lovely. Now you and your camera will be even more on the hunt:)I cant wait to see what comes next!

You've been breaking and entering again, haven't you?!

Lynette Killam said...

Hah, got me! Mind you, there wasn't actually a sign forbidding us to enter,so technically that doesn't count as trespassing, right...:)

What neat shots! I agree with Sherry Blue Sky. I'd like to live there just to look out. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Oh, this is such a brilliant take on the "framed" theme today! It reminded me of some photos I took of a small building at the Arboretum here!
