I like shooting through windows and I have a lot of pictures to prove it. It’s the only place from which I can see birds in the yard in the winter, or the frozen trees in the woods during a storm.

It’s also the place from which I can take pictures without having to put my boots on. Not a small thing when the temps are well below zero (Fahrenheit) and the snow is up to my hips.

I like the light from the east side of the house. Kitchen, dining room, our bedroom and the deck all face east.

Utensils by the window

The picture window in the living room faces west.

Only two small windows face north and south, but the way we are situated, all the action is east and west.

When I finished taking these pictures, the sun had made its way around to the other side of the house.

    1. When I had cast iron cookware, I got a lot of stainless steel pieces and I use them for serving. Most of my cookware now is Teflon or non-stick enamel, so I use a sort of nylon. It’s pretty good except if you aren’t careful, it melts.

    1. I do. I take the same pictures repeatedly, almost like I’m trying to scoop up the light and save it. I like the east light best, but sometimes, during certain seasons, we get a very small amount of sunset in the living room.


    1. The spoon is actually nylon, but it looks like cast iron. I gave up my cast iron because my wrists gave up on me. They were heavy without food in them, but full of food, it took two of us to lift them πŸ™‚

        1. I wasn’t happy at all, but Garry pointed out that HE found them too heavy, so unless I wanted to ask him to help with every meal, I had to get lighter cookware. It turns out, I like the new stuff, especially the enamel coated stuff. But I’ve had to adjust all the cooking times. You can do things in cast iron you can’t do in anything else.
