Photo challenge :: Through the glass

scrapbooking photo challenge

Here’s a challenge you can take up even if you’re stuck in an office, a car or a train or if it’s raining a downpour outside.

Your challenge is to take and post a photograph taken through a window! The subject is entirely up to you, as long as it is taken through a window of some sort. You can be as creative with that as you like.

scrapbooking photo challenge

You can photograph whatever you would like, but the image needs to be snapped between now and the end of the crop — this weekend’s challenges are not for older images already in your photo library.

Post your image on Flickr, on your blog or in another online photo gallery. Leave a link to it in the comments on this post to be entered.

One winner will be randomly chosen to win a new album ready for your next scrapbooking project!

Please see this post for all the deadlines and details about this weekend.

And no, I didn’t plan this challenge as any sort of reminder to wash the windows, I promise!

    I wasn’t very imaginative but I did take it today.

  3. Anne Says:

    Oooo, it’s gloomy out there today! (which in my mind, makes it the perfect kind of day for staying inside and scrapbooking)…

  4. Karen Aldrin Says:

    I run out between the showers to take these of my cheshire cat husband.

  5. Karen Aldrin Says:

    While I was at the rose garden, I took some photos specifically to use for the “through a window” prompt… After weeding out the poor shots, I came up with one I liked. It is the second-to-last photo in this post:

  29. Jamie Leija Says:

    I’m calling this my Leaving Home series. I left my parent’s home for (hopefully) the last time, as I’ve just packed up and moved to a new city for my first post-grad job. Instead of seeing my home getting smaller through my rearview mirror, I watched it get smaller through the windshield of my car, as I had to back out of my driveway.

  30. Jenny Pitcairn Says:

    The view from my craftroom window yesterday – very glad to be indoors!

  31. Kirsteen Says:

    Through the car windscreen, yes, I made him stop driving first.

  44. luluuk Says:

    Okay, I could not get a clear picture through glass! So I raised the glass and took the picture through the window. I hope that still counts!

  51. Peggy Says:

    When the weather’s as gross as it has been around here this year, through a window is a good way to take pictures.
