  1. Oh how intriguing and colourful and cleverly composed. The colourful arched window at the top and the question of “what” exactly is in there creating the effect — the reflection in the lower window that adds such depth — the small pane windows on the right that make me think of the a watercolour paintbox for some reason, as if the colour in the top window came from someone dipping a brush into them… and then those lovely aged walls. (Not to mention the question of what is in that big black box???) Love this.

  2. Cheryl Andrews says:

    A glass rainbow. Great eye; wonderful capture, Allyson.

  3. I love the half-coloured eyebrow window winking at us and the open window beckoning us in Allyson. The texture, the colour, the missing window all tell me I’d be standing looking and wanting to enter if I was on that street! (Which is where?)

    Could stare at this for ages. I love the layered feeling of it. At first I didn’t see the sky or recognize the ‘third’ dimension of the gutted room. Most interesting. All that without even getting to the window itself, those squares of various blues and the green/yellow/red… what is that? The glass itself or reflection? If so, reflection of what? It’s as if the left side of the window was intentionally taken out so that this could become a mind bendingly wonderful piece of art. But first it had to be ‘discovered’. Well done, you.

  5. That bit of sky really makes the picture, adding a hint of loss and destruction to the otherwise bright and cheerful scene. Though the wall also looks a bit decayed. Which reminds me of when my brother and his family lived in Vienna, which they found much too proper and perfect. Then they went to Venice and revelled in “glorious decay!”
