Yahooie! I think I've got it now. These were taken in Gatlinburg, TN. The one that doesn't look like much like a window is so incredible! If you can see it well enough the way it was designed is by cutting the ends into dowel shapes, and making a hole in the anchor then using leather straps to help hold it! How resourceful they were! The last two are of a barn up in MI. What was so interesting to me was that it was so old, it was "just a barn" but look at the detail above the windows in the up close shot! Thinking to myself-that was all done by hand!!!

Sorry, didn't realize there was a three pix limit. I will be a little more selective next time. I'm at the beginning of the learning curve here!

No need to apologize, Angie. We are just so happy you have taken on this wonderful project of challenging us each week .......and some weeks are a real challenge! I am still trying to come up with something starting with an 'A'.
It just goes to show you have a life outside SCS......hard to imagine isn't it?

O.k. here is mine. It was way harder to find windows to photograph then I thought. I wanted to do the windows of the post chapel thinking that they were stained glass. But they aren't stained glass they are colored glass panels. Still thinking that I could still get some good shots I tried to take pictures of them anyway. However they were retarring the roof and so there was roofing supplies and orange cones everywhere so pictures there were a no go.

I did however get a picture from the missile park here on post. This is a glass block window wall that houses a rocket exhibit.

Laura, that stained glass window is beautiful. I imagine it would be so great to wake up and have that piece of art to look at and be inspired by.

The first photo is inside La Posada Hotel looking into the gift shop. The other two are taken from La Posada's gallery looking towards the entrance and the chef's garden.

The gift shop had LOTS of beautiful American Indian jewelry and artifacts, wood carvings, etc. The camel is metal. There were quite a few metal sculptures throughout some of the gardens but not easily photographed. La Posada is quite a fascinating place to visit.

Everything here is fake, fake wall, fake reflection of girl in pick-up, fake lamps in a fake window, fake couple in the second floor window and fake bird.

Ah - that's the same shop front as in the Sing a Song, isn't it. I wouldn't have guessed it was a fake.
I can understand what you mean about some of the sculptures not being easy to get a good photo of. There's a lovely carved wooden owl in the cactus house in the Botanic Gardens here, and no matter how often I try I still haven't been able to find a good angle.

Yes, that is the same fake wall as in the sing a song challenge, just up close. The wall is only about four inches thick.
