Task set by Carly : EMPS #10: WINDOWS.
"Windows. We look out of windows hoping to see something interesting. We look into windows hoping to see something interesting, although we have to be careful how interesting that something might be! LOL. We decorate windows inside and out with lights, and drapes, and shutters, and mannequins and flower boxes and political signs. We call the eyes "the windows of our soul." Some of us use the Windows operating system on our computers. Windows almost always need washing. Sometimes we get food from a drive-thru window. We roll down the windows in our cars to let the wind blow through our hair. Sometimes, it is a good thing to have a, "window of opportunity" to act on. We all have windows in our lives, so, for this week's photo shoot assignment, let's photograph them. :)
Extra Credit: Show me your world through your car window!"
View from the car, on the way to SerembaN, Malaysia. That is the newly built Sikh Temple in a country which is predominantly Muslim.
The House of Tan Teng Niah, built in 1900, is one of Singapore Little India's last surviving villas. Mr Tan was one of the Chinese businessmen who had made a fortune in Little India , owning a confectionery business, few sweet making factories and a rubber smoke house in Serangoon Road area.
This eight room villa was built for his wife and it was finaly conserved and restored to it's full glory by the government in it's effort to preserved historical building, in the year 1980s.Admires for it's gorgeous architecture, the intricately carved swinging door with it's overhanged second storey and intricate staircase.
My window, which faces the common corridor, I like to leave the bottom part of the louvers window open when I sit at my PC, so that I have something else to focus beside the monitor. Need to give those eyes a break once in a while! Plus I get to t see which of my neighbours has come back or leave as there are 3 more units next to mine.
Oh, I almost forgot.....next to this window is another most important window, that is MY WINDOW TO THE WORLD! I can be cooped up staying at home for days but keeping in touch with friends here in Singapore and all over the world through the net. Without it I wouldn't even met Carly in USA and participated in the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot!
