Window Views - Window effect

Enlarge this one and examine the straight lines of the pole and curb on the other side of the street The distortion is not the camera or PhotoShop, it is the window itself. The hair salon that Marianne patronizes moved to an old house a few months ago and while waiting for her Tuesday, I notice the ripples in the glass of the windows and the interesting effect they caused. So I got my camera from the car and took this shot to share with you this week.

Very neat! I would guess that the window is made of very old glass??

Amazing how the window makes everything wavy. The glass must have been made a while ago in hand.
Have a great Thursday! :o)

Yes, indeed. The old glass in old buildings can provide the most interesting effects. So glad you spotted it and then took a picture to share here.

I'd get very dizzy looking out that windows too long but it sure makes for a great photo

That is a very nice photograph, especially enlarged.

Very cool! I find it amazing that glass slowly flows overtime. I always heard it was really a liquid.
