“There’s world out there. Open a window, and it’s there” – Robin Williams
From my childhood, windows fascinate me a lot. Whenever I was in my room it was the only connection to the outer world. It seems freedom to me; freedom of thinking, freedom of dreaming, freedom of traveling anywhere, anytime. A long gaze through the window during summer afternoon or any moonlit night used to take me to my favorite places.
There was no boundary to go anywhere through my “window”. This was a favorite pastime in my childhood- virtual tour through a window.
With time when I start traveling along with my camera my love for a window doesn’t fade but comes in a different form- framing my imagination, framing the outer world. Wherever I go it really mesmerizes me to see the place through the window reminding me of my childhood.
Here is my collection of windows taken in different countries, and my journey with the windows will be continued.
