What A Pane!

As a daily practice I take my camera along with me on my route. You know, to capture whatever captures my fancy on any given day.

Well, I've delivered to this house numerous times over the last couple of years since it was built and have always been amazed at how many windows it has. This is the front of the house, but the back AND the sides are equally showered with glass. I count 77 windows on this side alone! Actual panels of glass divided by vinyl. (Click on the picture for a closer look.)

I suppose to myself that the couple that lives here are either a) the owners of a glass store and they're padding their own pockets, or b) recently retired from Microsoft and this is merely a shrine to Windows. Which ever the case may be I'm thinking about retiring from my job to become their full time window washer.

Now we're talking. Great comments and interesting photo. It looks like windowsXP to me. Maybe they are from Asia somewhere and just use these windows when they survive their US holdings....or they hold a terribly over exposed ARM loan and barely make the nut each month. I'm voting you should wash the windows on your truck and keep driving.....and blogging. Mark

Hey! There you are! :)
What a beautiful home. And as I have said many times - you are blessed to see so much beauty on your route. The last picture you sent me is now my screen saver. :)
Don't stay away so long next time, ok?

That is a lot of windows. But the light inside must be incredible!

I'm here from Carmi's blog.

yeah ... but ... you'd need to paint some color out there ... it would get so blah over and over and over and over and over and over and over . . . . . . . again!
