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
