Snowglobe1

 

Photographs are inherently windows into the world at a time other now and typically at a place other than here. Even digital photos viewed on the camera’s LCD screen almost immediately after being taken are windows into a past world.

I enjoy snow globes and have a small collection of them. They too are in a sense windows – by which I mean windows into what are typically fanciful little worlds albeit worlds that share the common feature of swirling snow.

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Windows combines the snow globe’s window and the photographer’s window to give viewers of the snow globe a slightly different window – one that peers into a real world.
