Windows to the past

Another photography fascination for me is old windows and doors.  They have such character, and I always want to look inside to see if there is evidence of a time gone by and I wonder about the people who used to live there and look out.

These windows are from the lighthouse and keeper’s house in Kincardine, Ontario and are the last photos from that stop on the lighthouse tour.  As we were getting ready to leave, these windows caught my eye because of the contrast of the red against the white, the peeling paint, and the funny little vines growing up around them.  Oh, the stories these windows could tell!!
