Weekly Photo Challenge: Window


The Glacier Public Service Center on the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway welcomes visitors to the north side of the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest and North Cascades National Park in Washington State.  The stone and wood Cascadian style Center was built in 1938 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and is listed in the Federal Register of Historic Places.  There is a 24 hour self-serve information center outside of the building but during peak tourist season the interior is open for visitor services, books, maps and recreation passes.

  1. Lisa, your pictures make me long to visit that part of the world again. I’m hoping MTM will have a work trip to Vancouver in mid-to-late April. I will be done with my walk, and I’m determined to go with him. I’d love to get back to the Seattle area, too. So many enchanted places to visit out there.


  2. A magical image. Your treatment worked really well, I like the slight blur on the edges, it draws the eye right to that window and door. What a wonderful building. The window actually looks like the kind I found in my hubby’s barn!


    1. I’m glad you like my editing choices Meghan, I wanted to have a little fun with this one and highlight the window and door. 🙂 The full building is great to see and the interior is full of natural light and rich warm wood. If your hubby’s barn is from the 1930’s-40’s it could definitely be the same window!


    1. You’re right Sue, it is tucked away on the side of the building away from the large front entrance and big porch. I didn’t even take a photo of the front, I liked the side door better. 🙂


      1. Sometimes that happens! I remember years ago in Weimar I had seen a photo of an old orangery, and I wanted some images for myself. But when we got there, it had been restored. Then I noticed the side still had the old windows and got one image looking through some shrubs… I will perhaps post this image soon!


  3. Lovely building and I like your processing. Shows off the textures of the stone and wooden shingles. I’m also doing a bit more post processing this year 🙂

    1. Thanks Jude, I’m happy to hear you like the photo and my processing choices. 🙂 Sometimes I like to have fun with different looks and it’s nice to hear feedback when one works well. 🙂


  4. We’re currently in San Diego (La Jolla, specifically) and the photo made me homesick. They had a 93 MPH gust at home, so that homesick flash was pretty brief. Our son says everything is AOK, so far, so my angst is reduced.


    1. I’m glad you like the new theme Amy! I wanted a home page that made it easy to find past posts without too much scrolling and I’ve been happy with the individual post pages too. It’s still pretty new I changed it just a few weeks ago. 🙂
