30 Days in June- Day 8

Wow- we've been doing this for a week now! And we're back on the indoor/outdoor theme. Last night I decided I wanted to do another outdoor shot this week, but something in the evening. I've always loved the glow of the lights coming through my windows in the evening, so I had a little fun with some processing to feature the lights even more. After the shot, it was time to go in for some tea. A lovely evening for sure!
Great image.

It just says "home!" esp. that hanging decorative piece in the window....(that circular one, not the leaf!) This shot reminds me of some I took last summer, standing on HOT HUMID nights outside my mom's house when she was so sick and about to pass away. I would go out there to get a break,and the lit windows reminded me of that. Lovely shot!

Me too. I've always been attracted to the glow of light from a window at night. Great shot.

A bit sinister to my eyes, but clearly that's just me. Definitely a strong image.

@olivetreeann Oh crikey, please don't think I was implying that you have a dark side! It's just that my taste in films runs to some rather lurid stuff.

@automaticslim Oh no- I knew you were kidding- don't worry. I was just kidding right back- hard to hear that on a computer.
