Windows: clean and dirty and sometimes wet

Usually when I look through a window I think, pure and simple, I’m seeing what’s out there. ‘Truth is, what I’m seeing I’m actually seeing through the filter of the window: rain drops (and their intriguing slide-downs), dirt, smears, reflections, all that inhabit even the clearest and cleanest panes of optically neutral glass that fill the windows of my life.

No! This is not a metaphor for the mind as a filter busily re-identifying and evaluating what’s perceived by the senses–but it could be, I guess. Whatever, here are some photos made through glass. Enjoy!
