We can see clearly now...


My Wednesday picture was just one part of the whole. This was a window from one of the older homes we visited while at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont. Long ago window panes were hand blown and had a bullseye effect which distorts images. I zoomed in on one individual pane of glass and then did further distortions using my 'new gift to self.' Thanks to all who took a guess, and for the valuable advice. I think these windows have so much more personality and beauty than the windows of today.

My grandfather's bathroom in India had windows like this - true these windows are more interesting.

Look for Scott Kelby's book on PSE6. He is amazing, and makes it all so easy.

Hi Deb.. Sorry, I didn't have an email address so am posting the answer to your question here. I use the camera shown in my header - a Canon PowerShot S2 IS. (Thanks for your kind comments by the way!)

I love bullseye windows!!!
