Windows

loft-811-window-watermark

One of my favorite places I have ever lived was on the eighth floor in an industrial loft building. Above are the kitchen windows. To give you a little perspective, our ceilings were eighteen feet tall. The windows started a few feet off the ground and soared almost to the full ceiling height. Below is a photo of the windows from the outside of our loft. They are the thirteen windows that wrap the corner of the top floor. The last three windows all the way to the right side of the photo are the three windows in the above photo. I miss those windows and the great views of the river and the city seen from them.

Almost thirty years ago (1987-1990), we rented a hundred year old farmhouse. The house had a single addition; an indoor bathroom that was built fifteen years before we moved in (1972). Before that, the owner used an outhouse. This is a picture of the outhouse that was no longer in use, but still stood on the property. There were usually hay bales piled in front of it, where our children used to play. Behind it was a pen for the bull. Beyond that and down a slope was the cow pasture. It was a foggy day when I snapped this photo. I am still hunting for photos of the house.
