This week Leya of the esteemed Lens-Artist quartet is allowing us mere mortals a window of opportunity to be peers and peer through each others’ windows.
About 27 years ago while taking a suburban train into Cape Town, I had a short lived conversation with somebody sitting across me. He was holding a thick manual and told me he has to study. For a moment I ignored his conversation ending remark and asked him what he is studying. He said windows and stared intently at the book. As I eventually got the message, I decided to study the train windows (2 of us can play this game…). But my concept of studying windows bothered me. I was thinking building industry and wondered what exactly he is studying about it. Is it to to install different types of windows in different buildings? No, I was wise enough not to ask him… While he studied the inside of his manual I studied the cover and the word Microsoft was quite prominently displayed.
If you are viewing this via a PC, chances are the operating system is Windows, as in the corporate world it is indeed installed in many buildings. Use Windows or your fruit (Tina) and go and look at Leya’s soulful and beautiful windows.
I stare at the windows on computer screens daily but often the real window beside me offer better views. These are a few views through my window and other windows @ work.
Or is the pot of gold at this end?
As the company I work for is in the Financial Services industry, it is good to see that we are at least in the vicinity of a pot of gold.
There are times when my work as viewed via the Windows product set, is frustrating and I would prefer that the object of my work is real windows (as I would imagine I’m climbing the great peaks of the world).
The 3 photos above was taken with my Sony mobile. I was fortunate to have my camera at work when these doves decided to become love birds
I was asked to photograph the 67 minutes for Mandela activities at our work. Prepared food was donated to a school, hence the presence of my camera regarding the doves. The windows provided enough light so that no humans were injured in the process. The light also reflected effectively from the ivory. Apologies, these ladies are not elephants – it captivatingly reflected off the part of their bodies made of enamel.
