Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge: May 24, 2021

There used to be a saying in the Orthodox Church that holy icons were windows into Heaven. I think that’s a pretty cool sentiment. In the Catholic Church, a miracle is defined as something that points to God. In those terms, I think this icon is pretty miraculous. It was manufactured by hand on Mount Athos in Greece. I love how Jesus is depicted as an adult. Note how he is giving his mother, the Blessed Virgin a flower.

Here are a couple more secular (and literal) windows.

During your wanderings in the forest, if you see this little house, turn and run the other way!

This is a view of our poor, neglected backyard from the kitchen door. The screen door was recently blown off during a heavy storm. Any volunteers to replace it?

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.

    1. Thanks, Ludwig! You know, when I saw your latest post, I immediately thought of the hospital here in Annapolis which has a closed foot-bridge. Is that where you took your photo? At a hospital? Just curious…
