How to choose only five entries and exits? I had so many windows and doors to choose from, even after I limited myself to shots I took this week. We visited Wave Hill over the weekend—as we often do—and the first, third, and fifth shot were taken there. The blue-framed window in the last shot may be my favorite window to photograph (if you find yourself as taken with it as I obviously am, you can see other images of it here, here and here). And the shot of Isaiah looking out the window at the Hudson River was taken from our garage (that is, the parking garage where we pay good money to house our car—there are reasons to be glad you don't live in Manhattan).

Next week's photo Friday theme: all things patriotic and national, Rockwellesque, or just red, white, and blue. This way you can do double-duty at whatever barbeque or picnic you might find yourself—that is, if you happen to be in the United States for the Fourth.

The color of that window frame in that last shot is robin's egg blue. I love it now too.

I ♥ the one of the little boy looking out, silhouetted against the bright outdoors....

My favorite is the second and fourth. Just beautiful.

Nick, love the shots from The Searchers. That was unexpected and a great addition. And of course, robin's egg blue.

Thanks Marfa and Manuela!

I like Ike and that huge window onto the Hudson. But then again- the conservatory/glass house takes me to a comfortable far away place- an entry into my past.
Thanks for sharing!

I love those shots. They’re dramatic. The second photo is really striking. The simple shot seems to have a story behind it. Looking at the window will make you think lots of things and this little boy seem to have something in his mind. It’s puzzling. :D
