Whimsical Windows - Delirious Doors

This looks like fun fun fun - I've always been fascinated by doors and windows.

Don used to have to go to Seattle, to U.W. Harborview (out here we pronounce that Yoo- Dub Harborview - it is attached to the University of Washington in Seattle) for his eye surgeon appointments.

The Eye Clinic is on the 7th floor - it takes up the entire floor.  There are waiting rooms all over the place - you are sent to a specific waiting room for your specific doctor.  After Don would go on for his laser surgeries I would wander about with my camera - getting some wonderful views of Seattle from the 7th floor.  During this time it never occurred to me that perhaps someone might find this a little strange - a big camera and taking photos of the buildings in Seattle.  I'm glad I didn't think of that - and I'm  glad no one else did  - because I have some fabulous memories and photos of those wandering photo shoots.  



I don't know what this building is - but I knew at once that it was one of my favorites.


The windows and architecture of the building are fascinating


Windows, some almost the size of doors - cover most of the building. Can you imagine washing all those small panes?

Welcome aboard to WWDD! I can see why you like this building, it's really lovely, very classy and classic. And no, I would not want to wash any of those window panes :)
Hope to see you again next week, have fun in the meantime!

I am sure somebody living in Seattle will recognise it and let you know JoAnn. Lovely building I agree.

That is a beautiful building! I do love all the paned windows and the little turrets on top. So pretty! xo

What a lovely old building. I like these huge multipaned windows and the architecture is indeed fascinating. I think this may be the campus I visited a few years ago with my sister to see a library there with the most amazing interior kind of like an old European cathedral.

Funnily I also posted some Seattle "windows" today, from a recent visit. I'm so glad to have found your blog. I love the PNW and dream of living there one day.

Since getting interested in photography my eye is drawn to many different subjects--some very obscure. I can totally see how you could be fascinated with views from high up. This building looks like it should be on an estate rather than downtown!

It is so intricate it almost looks like a miniature that would go with some sort of Christmas village ...

It's a fine looking building, but I'll pass on washing the windows!

What a wonderful roofline it has! It would have been fun to study architecture, don't you think?

I love that building! The muted colors, the architecture, (splendid,) and all those windows! But you're right, i wouldn't want to be the window washer, that's for sure. :)

No, I can't imagine washing them, but looking at them is pretty enough!
