Vines...ABC Wednesday, brought to you by the letter "V"

I definitely have a thing for taking photographs of windows and doors. This is one of my favorites...it was shot at the Mission in Carmel, CA. It is one of the most beautiful, magical places I have ever been (there is a photo gallery at the Mission's website full of beautiful images one of the parishioners took).

Here's another "Vine" shot from my visit to the Mission:

And just for the fun of it, here is a "Vine" photo I took probably twenty years ago. It was the exterior of the house I lived in with a bunch of other students. This was back in the day when I developed and printed my own film. I could lose myself for hours in a darkroom.


  1. The first photo is interesting, I like the offset composition.

  3. That was me above. I really should learn how to spell and type simple words.

    This is what I said:
    Wow those are great. I am also impressed with your darkroom experience.

    Have a Happy Holiday!

  4. What classic beauty! I love back and white photos of old looking things!

    I just joined ABC Wednesday and thought I would stop by.

  5. Love vines, altho depending were they are they can over take a lot of things.

  6. Oh, you have an artist's eye for sure. Love those pictures.

    Very beautiful shots, very interesting blog. Thank you for your visit. I don't know much about Corfu. But any way, I think you can post your shot and I see what Ι can find.

  8. As always - your photos are gorgeous!

  9. Wow, you were good with a camera twenty years ago. I love to see pictures of windows and doors. I am drawn to them as well and often include them or make them the center of my artwork.


Brilliant observations:
