My window of opportunity for participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week may well be rapidly closing, but if I hurry I may just make it. For more on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge go to https://ceenphotography.com/2016/11/22/cees-fun-foto-challenge-windows/
Some fancy windows at the Pui Tak Center in Chinatown, Chicago.
Imagine what it must have been like for the seventy-odd people who, at one time or another, looked anxiously out through the windows of the Apple River Fort in Elizabeth, Illinois, during the Black Hawk War in 1832. The settlers survived the attack by two hundred warriors thanks in part to the sturdy construction of the long-vanished fort. The fort has been reconstructed as is now open to the public.
Some of the beautiful stained-glass windows that were on display at the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows on Navy Pier in Chicago. Sadly the museum was closed when the pier was renovated this year.
Sometimes it’s what’s in and around the window that makes it interesting. A window at the Taylor House in Freeport and an antique shop in Long Grove, Illinois.
Some well-weathered windows at the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, Illinois.
