weekly photo challenge: window

Wednesday, January 15: The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Window.  Writes Cheri Lucas: {Windows} are portals into the world’s stories. Glimpses into other people’s lives. Looking out (or into) a window can tell you about where you are — and where you’re not — and mark a particular moment in time, linking you to a physical place. Windows are also enablers of our daydreams and desires, and can stir up memories and big ideas.

Here are some shop windows from Abbott Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California.  In 1990, West Washington was renamed to Abbot Kinney, after the man who built the Venice Canals.  The street boasts fine restaurants, unique art galleries, prestigious wine shops and exciting nightlife.

    1. I don’t know it has changed much because I don’t remember ever being here before! Abbott Kinney seems quite upscale, not quite fitting with the image I’ve had of the old Venice. Thanks, Carol. 🙂

    1. I had a great time in California. It wasn’t so much about seeing the sights, but I had a great visit with my sister in LA, then another great time with my friend Jayne in San Francisco, stopped at Hearst Castle and the two missions on the coast (Santa Barbara and Ventura), then back to LA, where I met Rosie of Wondering Rose. We went to an inspirational Poets and Writers Event together! It was hard to come home to the cold. 🙂
