Default Home Sweet Home ~ Kitchen Window

Not expecting these to be anything special but in keeping with the theme these have
been taken out my Kitchen Window under different weather/lighting conditions...

The latest (Snowy Night) was taken recently... Also, you may notice that in the two older
images the power line runs through the center but not in the latest... The power company
replaced some poles recently and raised that line up higher...

BTW, I live in Abereen, WA USA if you were wondering...

Kitchen Window-Snowy Night (2010-11-22_HS10)


Kitchen Window-Rainy Night (2010-04-28_HS10)


Kitchen Window-Overcast Day (2010-04-30_HS10)


Again, nothing special...

Just the window I look out of most often to get an idea on what the day/night is like
out there...

You can see larger versions of these here:

Just click on any image, then click twice more to expand to full size...

Hope I haven't bored you too awful much...

What an interesting selection. Scrolling thru the 1st and 2nd shots it seems like a laid-back kinda sleepy area, and then with the 3rd, it changes to an impression of urban dynamics with all the cars. That is a good selection of shots.

What a beautiful pictorial essay of life outside your kitchen window. Nicely done.

Thanks, Steven...!

Yes, in the off times it's pretty quiet but can get quite busy and LOUD during the
week days... The Post Office is directly across the street (to the right out of view)
so it can be quite the rat-race out there at times...

Nice to see your point of view Wizzard. I would personally like to send a thank you card to your electric company for clearing things up,,, Happy Thanksgiving!

Great to see the comparison of different times at the same location.

Thanks...!

The electric company said they'd prefer a donation, a few hundred should do nicely... They also
said to go ahead and send it to me and I can pass it along to them...

And a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your's too, Frank...!

I'm sure that you make regular donations to your electric company already; probably around the same time every month. And they are probably so thoughtful that they send to you each month a nice reminder of the amount of your monthly donation. I know mine does. So believe me when I say, I've already given!
