Round Robin: Through a Window

I've been so distracted this week what the date for the Round Robin Challenge: In the Window is upon me and I haven't taken any usable pictures for it. Well, not recently, anyway. I did take a few tonight, but they're worthless. It doesn't matter, though, because I've taken lots of pictures over the course of this year that do qualify as looking in a window. Some of them are previously unpublished, at least on this blog. Here are some of my favorites:

From March: here is a peek in a window of St. Michael and All Angels. It was around Palm Sunday, and if you look carefully you can see the crossed palms inside the window.

From May: I rushed into the Mission San Xavier del Bac late one afternoon, just before they locked up for the evening. In the museum and gift shop area there was a large display case full of old statuary. I managed to photograph the icons through both the front and side windows of the display.

From Tucson Botanical Gardens

In June I visited the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Here's a view in through a window of a greenhouse there.

From Summer at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum

In July a friend was in town for the day, so I met her out at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, essentially a desert-themed zoo west of Tucson. It was a hot, muggy monsoon day, so the animals weren't very active, including this ocelot, seen through a viewing window into its den.

This mountain lion was also sacked out in its windowed den.

These bobcats are seen here looking through a viewing window into their habitat.

That's enough. Now let's peek inside everone else's windows!

Great variety of subjects here. Just goes to show how interesting it is to be on the outside looking in.

I really like that first one--with the crossed palms in the window. Great variety.

Peg said...

I like the last one the very best, you'd never know it was through a window.

Jeanette said...

Nice pictures! Lots of different windows to look through. We were at a Botanical Gardens this summer and I took some window pictures. Wish I would have though of them!

I love the Dessert Museum! LOl...all my pics from there pre-date digital cameras, though...Nice job of looking in.

Monica said...

You were busy and provided us a lot of variety. =) I like the first photo with the plams in the window, the texture outside the window. It all works. I also liked the bobcat. =)

Rita said...

Great shots all but, the first is my favorite. I love old buildings.

Thanks for visiting my doggie in the window. I do so appreciate all those who visit and leave a comment.

All are great but I love the zoo ones! I need to take more photos through windows.
