We went to Holland with a side trip to Prague last fall. Wonderful trip. We were with my wife’s cousin for much of the trip. She was a gracious hostess. Showed us around – drove us to some very cool spots. I took lots of photos and one of the things that I photographed was windows. She was puzzled and asked me about it. I told her that windows here were not like in Holland. In the Netherlands people by and large made their windows something to look at. In North America, Canada and the US of A for the most part windows are for letting cool or warm air in or keeping it out.
I wish I had taken more but it took me a while to kind of wake up to it. I would gladly make a trip to The Netherlands for the sole purpose of shooting windows and doors.
Here, have a look:
