Thy´s Day # 26

You know that I am obsessed with windows, don´t you?
This one is from the porch of the church in Jannerup, Thy. 
In Denmark we call the porch a ´weapon house´ 
- the place where you leave your weapons behind before entering the church.

Dorte - I like that term - "weapon house." It makes a lot of sense. And that is a nice picture. The picture of you is lovely, too!

A woman after my own heart, I also have a thing about windows - and, talking of churches, gargoyles. Any chance of you featuring some of these?

Dorte H sagde ...

Margot: thank you!

Tracy: windows are gorgeous glimpses of a greater world.

I don´t think we have any gargoyles in Thy. I can show you a Scottish gargoyle one day, but not on a Thy´s day.

What a great photo of the window in the church porch! Did you use a flash facility? I love the contrast of light and dark and the glimpse of the scene outside. Thank you for the interesting language information and the happy photo of yourself. Peace to you, Dorte!

Linda: I just remembered NOT to use the flash :D

Great picture of the window...and great picture of you!

I love windows, too....and doors! In fact, I love churches in general (and castles).

This is a great shot and I also like the view through the window.

It's always nice seeing pictures of you, too! :)

Elizabeth: thank you. It was a wonderful day so I just felt like playing a pot plant :D

Kelly: I couldn´t resist that view either. It is one of my own favourites (the church view, not my own picture :O)

The picture of the window view of the garden is very tantalizing. I love it!

Love the windows.

In answer to your question, I'm not professional but I have done A LOT of research. I love research. I have my sources.

Nevets: thank you and welcome to my blog.

Clarissa: ah! I´ll know whom to ask in the future ;)

Dorte - that's a good tip about not using a flash facility. I'm taking more photos these days, but would love to improve and produce better ones.

Linda: I just use my husband´s digital camera, but after I began this weekly feature, I have become more interested in taking good photos for my blog so I think more about what the camera can do now than before where I just shot.
