CPS Photo Challenge #16 - Windows

CPS Challenge #16 :  Windows and photography are both about light and seeing.  Without the window of the lens, photography would be impossible.  Windows allow light to pass through so we can see or be seen by the world around us.  They can be large or small, round or rectangular, fancy or simple, clear or frosted, plain or ornate.  
Your task for this challenge is to make an image with one or more windows as a predominant element.  You can be looking out or looking in or simply looking at the window.  Have fun and be creative.
This Challenge is active through 7pm on Saturday, June 25th, when a new Challenge will be issued. If you haven't gotten around to joining our group yet, simply follow the instructions below:
New Challenges are issued every two weeks. To participate, you'll need a free Flickr account. After you've done that, upload a few photos and then join the group. Full instructions and a discussion forum are located there.
