Sunday Stills: Window

Hugh’s View & News says:  Like you and I, every window can tell a story. Some will show you those stories, while others will only show them to a chosen few. Some won’t reveal their stories to anything in our world.

These are a few pictures I took this past summer when I went back to my childhood home town. They’re very amateurish (which is what my photography is) and taken on the run. I used my iPhone8+.

One of many store fronts found on Main Street.  This one happens to be unoccupied.  Love the 1890 at the top!

So sad to see our elementary schools fall into complete disrepair.  This is Anthony Wayne and I attended here in the sixth grade. It was built in 1931 and our schools depended on open windows and doors for air conditioning! The elementary school I attended from second to fifth grades (Franklin Elementary) has already been torn down and is now a neighborhood park.

Standing in front of the County Courthouse looking up. It’s such a beautiful old structure.  So much history.  Built in 1876.  It is still in use today. This is a view of the second story circular window from the outside.

The above second floor window from the inside at the top of the stairs looking out.  My friend and I used to play inside and outside this old courthouse back in the 50s.

Sitting in my family’s sun room looking out across a farmer’s field.

    I love your sun room. What a view.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  2. Old buildings are the best – they don’t make them quite the same any more. Also great view out into a field. I’d love that too!

    • Isn’t that the truth? I just love old architecture. That’s why I think I would love to tour our historical sites in the U.S. And the ultimate would be some of the sites in other parts of the world! 😀

    your windows
    are so
    clean, Linda 🙂

  7. I love the view out of those windows in the sunroom. I also enjoyed your trip back to the past when you visited your childhood town. It’s sometimes sad to see what time has done with some of the buildings, but your memories of playing inside and outside the courthouse are lovely.
    Thank you so much for participating in this week’s Sunday Stills.

  8. That courthouse is a beautiful building. I’m jealous of that sun room 🙂

    • It is a beautiful courthouse and was recently refurbished. I’m so glad they’re taking care of it. And I’m jealous of that sun room, too! While staying with family, I spent most of my time in that room when I wasn’t running around! 😁

    I love the architecture of these buildings. But then I am a sucker for all of the ornate buildings of the past. When you get around to overbuilt cities it’s the one thing you notice right off the bat…great architecture and ornate buildings really ARE a thing of the past. It’s a shame we don’t make great buildings like this anymore.

    very inspiring 🙂

    Some very impressive windows (and buildings). A couple of my classrooms at school had ceiling fans. Otherwise, open windows in summer and jackets in winter. 🙂

    Wonderful set of windows and storytelling! I too often take pictures with my iPhone 8 Plus. It takes very good pictures of flowers.

  16. I could sit and contemplate in that sun room…what a great view! Love all of the pics…the architecture is stunning and you have captured it very well!!

  17. wonderful!! love the sun room shot!

    • Thanks! Great to see you again! I haven’t been very active here myself! The sunroom is an addition my brother and his wife made. I absolutely fell in love with it when I visited them last summer.

  18. Nah, they ain’t amateurish… I think they are excellent! Never seen buildings as beautiful as that around here.
