Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #158

Welcome back to our little meme!
Here's a shot of the stairwell that I was pleased to find when visiting our close friends, who recently moved into their newly renovated apartment in Jerusalem. Wow! I don't recall ever seeing a triangular stairwell before, and I find this completely mesmerizing. And yes, I confess - we took the elevator :)
There are some doors in there, too, if you look closely :)

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #157

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
A new movie theater opened in Jerusalem about half a year ago. It's the newest branch of an Israeli chain called Cinema City, known for its spacious and super-comfy seats. It's also got a lovely disco floor:
And these gigantic disco-like chandeliers to boot!
Looking a bit closer, I realized that you can see smaller light fixtures dangling between all of those glass balls - this thing is really neat! Feel free to click on any of the photos, if you'd like a closer view.
My daughters and I didn't expect the shiny new bathrooms to blow us away. They're just so... pink!!

That's it for now :) Come to think of it, those doors would be perfect for Ruby Tuesday, is that still around? Yes, I just found it, here! Yay :)

Anyway, please play along with us here at Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! Just post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget, below.

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #156

Welcome back to our little meme!
Well, we're back to pictures in good old Israel. We were at our cousin's wedding last night, and had a wonderful, wonderful time - mazal tov! The hall was lovely, and very festive, but I really liked the modest front door, approached from slightly above. It was dark and drizzling outside, and the light from within made it a very tempting destination:

I especially like the planter on top of the door, it cracks me up just a bit :)

On a side note - this is one of the first photos that I've taken with my brand spanking new phone... it's not too bad! I'm trying to get used to the concept of using a phone as an actual camera, my kids do it all the time and come up with beautiful pictures, so we'll see how it goes :)

That's it for now! Please play along with us here at Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! by posting your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, linking here, and signing up in the widget, below. Thanks so much for stopping by, and please have a wonderful, whimsical week, everyone!

Skywatch - catching up :)


Well, it's getting to be winterish, and that's the time of year that I'm blessed to be inundated with beautiful clouds at all times of day. Yay! Here are a few sunrises, sunsets, and random beautiful sky views that I've found over the past few weeks (buckle up, there are quite a few... :)


I decided that the electric lines here kind of added to the composition :)
Here's a rainbow peeking out from behind a raincloud :)
As always, feel free to click on any of those, if you'd like a closer view. Now go visit Skywatch Friday, to see even more sky-oriented photography! Have a lovely, peaceful weekend, all of you - thanks for stopping by!

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #155

Welcome back to our fun little meme!



Here's one last building that I don't remember having seen before until now, and it was very pretty! All sorts of mesmerizing, almost dizzying wavy lines - it made me feel like I was on the beach:



I decided to zoom in a bit, and see just what was going on there:



Which is when I realized - whoa! Even cooler! Those waves are balconies! I think...



Yes, they are! And just one zoom closer, I found someone standing outside :)



As always, feel free to enlarge any of those, if you'd like a closer view.

A quick search in Google Images revealed that my beach feeling is pretty close to the intent of this structure - it's called "Aqua," and is even more awesome than I knew :) Click on that link if you're interested...

Chicago was the last stop on our summer tour, and Aqua is the end of my overseas windows and doors exhibition. Well, except for this, which always makes me feel all warm and cozy inside:



And these cool shots taken out of our airplane window, of the Swiss Alps:

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #154

Welcome back all, to your favorite little meme!
We're almost, almost done looking at my photos from this past summer, and then we can get back to Israeli architecture! Meanwhile, here are the highlights from the second half of the boat tour that my family went on in downtown Chicago:







 As a little girl, this one was always my favorite :)
