Shower With A View

This photo was taken in early April at 9 am 2012 


The location is in my home in Maryland 


The "Take It!" comes from a long time enjoyment of a last minute modification request I made many years ago when doing a retrofit of a window that was placed on the side of the tub/shower in the main bathroom of the house.  The original house had a plain slide window as the installation which was unsatisfactory in that it caught water and was difficult to find appropriate covering for.  I contacted a glass block company and looked at a number of blocks that provided privacy through their design which included lots of distortions shaped into the glass.  At the last minute I asked for the top two tiers of blocks to be in clear non distorted glass to allow anyone using the shower to be able to have both privacy and a little bit of a view looking upward at the trees that are in the back yard.  The glass company had never done that before but went along with it.  


The After Take:  As mentioned above, this has been an installation of long standing.  The enjoyment I have had with this bit of simple view has been grand. Guests have commented that they too have enjoyed this little bit of a view. Not that the wall had it been all distorted glass would have been claustrophobic, this just offers a little bit of contrast.  This is one of those "share the stuff" photos.  Perhaps you may wish to contemplate a similar installation should occasion offer you the same opportunity. 


Here is the hope you have had a great day and even if for a moment, taken time to enjoy some views of nature. 


Thanks for joining us for the current photo presentation. You are cordially invited to return Friday April 27 for a new picture that we hope you will enjoy.


Wishing you the best

    I dunno if I could handle having any part of my window not blurry in the shower. Something about the neighbors being able to see me bath would be a little awkward for me.

    my bathroom is windowless. On the one hand I prefer it that way, but I can see where having the sunlight would be a cheerful addition to an early morning shower.

    Wouldn't it be cool to have something like that going all the way around. 360 degree view lol.

    Would imagine that a bit of a view would be a treat and the sunshine a definite bonus to start the day!
