Peeping through windows.

I was rambling through my old pictures again and wanted to show these. These pictures are from the Netherlands, Amsterdam 2009, when I was on holiday with my significant other. For some reason I spotted many windows that were broken or had some interesting content. Here are the best.

This was apparently some sort of security glass (there was a little sticker about that at the bottom) and I thought this spiderweb-like pattern was pretty.

This here is a brilliant solution, if one has had a family fight and a plate has once again gone through a window.

This was the bottom part of a window of a small art gallery. Unfortunately i can't remember what was the gallery's name or at what street it was located.

This here is quite a generic picture of a gothic church. Still, I think it is pretty (but smeared, because one could not use flash) and it is in fact Oude Kerk, wich is an old church that is in the middle of the red ligth district. It is in the middle of a small square and it is surrounded by brothels, where ladies are showing the merchandise in the windows. Oh, almost forgot to mention, it is no longer used as a church, there are exhibitions, like in 2009 there were journalistic photos.

Another scattered window. Those old houses in their slow decay were just breath-takingly beautiful.
