WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Window ( and a Lingering look at Windows)

WordPress Weekly challenge is Windows: one of my favourite subjects. They provide a window to and from one’s world. And if you have been reading this blog, you will also know snow and ice are a recurrent theme. Take a look:

I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    First photo is just perfect! I can feel the cold in the second one!


    • The second is through the window of a bus in Fagernes, Norway!


    • We need some brrrr here at the moment!

      🙂 THe wind is blowing here at 120km an hour- I had to stand still with both feet on the pavement . Picking up one leg to go on walking felt as if I would blow away! This was 9pm to let Trompie go for his last walky- He took his time again tonight!


    • My goodness, if you had to work to stand still, how did Trompie go? He must have been like Mary Poppins umbrella! Flying high! I hope it settles soon. We have been to a schnauzer breakfast.


    • scrapydo says:

      He is lower to the ground than me! Puts his nose into the wind and waits till I can move on again! How many Schnauzers were at the breakfast? I think it must be wonderful to have them around you 🙂


    • All the schnauzers you see in the photo plus one giant, who stirred up a bit of trouble on account of his size and being ‘entire’ so the boys saw him as a threat and started a few dominating postures!! It is wonderful to have them all, We are just comparing pedigrees and discover most of them are related in some way…bar one or two.


    • scrapydo says:

      It is so sad that they are all related because it weakens their breeding line


    • Well, they are not that closely related. My girl’s great grandparents are the same as another ones grandparents. One is a great aunt to another. These dogs are not breeding dogs but are older and only family pets. Well maybe the giant may still have pups, I don’t know. There are not so many standard schnauzers around anymore. But I do see your point. They need fresh blood lines.


    • scrapydo says:

      All in the line of breeding with them!
      In SA there were not many mini Schnauzers, was very hard to get them. When I bought my one male Bobby the breeder did not want to sell it to me because I wanted to breed with him! As a pet it was okay not as a show dog or as a breeding dog! This was All in the closed group of breeders. Bobby’s Father was imported from USA – the breeders did not want competition.
      Going into showing and breeding dogs gives you lots and lots of problems with jealous breedres


    • Yes I see some of that in the breeders in the facebook group. They aim to preserve the breed and protect their breeding line, but use that as a cloak to deter competition.

    Love the look of the icicles, although I am glad to be away from them now. I am formerly from the Midwest and now live in Portland, OR. Rarely do we see icicles where I now live, although I grew up with them in Illinois and Wisconsin.


    • I have only ever seen them this long in Scandinavia. Funny how those of us that grow up with the cold weather, long for the heat, and vice versa. I have lived with sub tropical heat, so love the icy climates. Thanks for stopping by.

    Those icicles are like a picture in a fairy story. But what is going to happen next when they all melt?
