Round Robin Photo Challenge ~ Outside the Window


It’s time for a new challenge. The idea for this one is to stand (or sit) outside a window, and photograph through it to whatever is inside.  Visit the Round Robin Photo Challenge Blog to see more entries for this challenge.

Here are a few photos I’ve taken that qualify for this challenge.


Looking in to a Tea Room in Santa Monica, California.


A fairy tale shop at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.


A bridal gown shop in Laguna Beach, California. Generic with no sentiment or emotion attached when I took this. This next photo is another story…


This is our daughter in front of the Bridal shop in Bellevue, Washington where we just purchased her wedding dress. Very sentimental and personal with plenty of emotion attached!

A wedding is afoot at our house but because my daughter is marrying a Marine who will soon be in Active duty we do not know what date we can choose for the event yet. It will be sometime in the next year in the meantime we are preparing what we can because we might have very little notice for the actual event.

Have a great weekend Robins!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Great shots! You’re right about the emotionless gown. I think it’s supposed to leave you imagining bringing it to life.

    Your daughter is beautiful and she does bring emotion to the final shot. Congratulations on her engagement. You must all be excited in anticipation of the big day!

  2. Oh, I love the last one—mainly because I can certainly understand the emotion tied to it. I have 2 daughters who have gotten married in the last few years—so exciting and fun!

  3. How cool! I like all of these. Disneyland is the first place I thought of for this; they always have some great shop windows, but not to easy to photograph. You did a great job on that one. The tea room is lovely, as are the generic and actual brides!

  4. I love your daughter’s smile, she truly looks happy. =) Such an exciting time for them. When I saw Bellevue, I was thinking it was here in Bellevue, WA near where I live and I was going to say if they needed a photographer I’d offer a sweet deal as I LOVE photographing our military men and women when they get married.

    I also like the first photo, it looks like a charming place. I was ready to go in. =)

  5. Congratulations to your daughter and her Marine! I love the Bibbidi Bobbidi window! And the one of your daughter is quite lovely and yes! Sentimental!!

  6. What an interesting theme for a post! Love that tea-room – ready to go in for my cuppa. The photo with you daughter is precious – I didn’t even notice the window until after I looked at her first. A picture of joy! Thanks for sharing!

  7. This made me happy to read. And I am glad you won’t be needing to pay “rush order” fees on her dress.
    I once read about a man who got his future son in law to participate in an object lesson: No one knew the day or the time that the Bridegroom would come. The bride prepared and was ready for when ever that moment came.

    The parents of the bride made sure they knew the desires of their daughter in terms of a wedding, but ultimately, she would only know that her wedding day had come when she heard her bridegroom calling for her to come with him. Her Father prepared a wedding feast for her and her bridegroom, and had invited everyone that they knew to come.

    Crazy wild story, but it still gave me shivers to read it. The couple have been happily married for several years now and have children of their own.
