@joannekelly also good for #FensterFreitag ! :)

Den #FensterFreitag hab ich ja verpasst, den #KatzenSamstag aka #Caturday diesmal nicht.
Hier also mein Kombibild für beide Tage.
Kater Peter trinkt am liebsten aus ner Gieskanne. Wir haben zwar 3 Wassernäpfe für die #Katzen in der Wohnung und einen auf dem Balkon stehen aber Peter ist halt eigen.
Ich muss also immer dafür sorgen, dass die kleine Gieskanne randvoll gefüllt ist.

#Fensterfreitag #WindowFriday

Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire (UK)

The ruins of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire (UK) showing the remains of a massive gothic-arched (13th century) decorated seven-light window. The abbey was abandoned in the 16th century following the dissolution of the monasteries, and its decaying ruins subsequently became a famous and much visited landmark. Four centuries later, the six stone mullions and much of the original tracery in this remarkable window are somehow preserved. 

In the photograph seen here, three small figures are visible on the green grass of what was the original church nave below, including two children, dressed in white, and a female figure seen walking off to the left.

The #FensterFreitag #WindowFriday #ExLibris with the cactus in a barred window (PT) reminded me of the cover illustration of Das Schwalbenbuch (The Swallow Book; 1923) written by Ernst Toller while imprisoned for high treason for his role in the 1918-19 #German #revolution

The title refers to birds nesting in his cell, whose fate reflected his alternation between despair & hope

An inserted leaf regarding proofs/errata alludes to censorship in prison

@bookhistodons 2/n

printed cover of the Swallow Book (Potsdam: Kiepenheuer, 1923):

engraving of the two long dark shadows cast by the bottom bars of a prison on a light ground between two walls

light blue paper
Die Korrekturen zum ,Schwalbenbuch” sind vom Verfasser nur unvollständig gepüift worde,. Die Niederschönenfeldsche Festungsverwaltung hat die hier gedruckte Fassung beschlagnahmt, "da sie eine Reihe von Stellen enthält, deren Verbreitung dem Strafvollgug Nachteils bereiten wiirde”.
"In the spring a pair of swallows nested in my cell; they lived with me all the summer. The nest was built, & the female brooded on her eggs while the male sang his little twittering song to her. The eggs were hatched & the peasants fed their young and taught them to fly, until one day they flew away & did not come back. The parents had a second brood, but a premature frost killed the young, & they huddled close together silently mourning their dead children. With the coming of autumn they flew away to the southern sun." 
At this time Toller was contemplating suicide. However, the song of the swallows, a token of the coming spring & hence of the renewal and regeneration which are both the cause & the object of revolution. "The swallows symbolize freedom in an environment of repression." The opening poem is about August Hagemeister, a fellow member of the Independent Social Democratic Party who had been sentenced to ten years in prison for his role in the German Revolution. He died on 16th January, 1923, through lack of proper medical attention. His death emphasizes the monotony and isolation of imprisonment. "Everywhere you see iron bars. Even the child playing in the distant, oh, so distant field, blooming with lupins, is forced within the bars that divide your eyes." 
The Swallow Book The manuscript became the object of a long and bitter dispute between Toller and the prison authorities. Some parts of the cycle, notably the poem inspired by the death of Hagemeister and
that celebrating revolutionary youth, were considered by the prison censor to contain "so many provocative passages that the total effect is agitational...The Swallow Book has been confiscated, since it contains much which, if published, would be detrimental to prison discipline"
Toller had made a copy of his work and he had it smuggled out of prison and The Swallow Book was published in 1924. The authorities were furious and moved Toller from his east-facing cell to one which faced north and which swallows would not frequent. The following April, the birds returned to build their nest in his former cell, but the prison authorities, angered by the publication of the book ordered the nest to be destroyed. The swallows built their nest again - & again it was destroyed
"The swallows, bewildered & passionately eager, began to build three nests simultaneously in three different cells. But they were only half finished when the warders discovered them & repeated the outrage...The struggle lasted for seven weeks; a glorious & heroic struggle between the united forces of Bavarian law & order & two tiny birds. After the nests were torn down for the last time some days went by without a new nest being discovered; evidently the swallows had given up. But soon whispers were going round among the prisoners that the swallows had found a new place...Rarely had we experienced a purer happiness. The swallows had won after all in their fight against human beastliness. Their victory was ours too

For #FensterFreitag / #WindowFriday

a simple little #ExLibris by Otakar Váša for Jiří Havelka (zincography, 7.2 x 8.3 cm), 1944.

I have so far been unable to identify the owner.

Given the date, one suspects that the thorny cactus with a single outward-facing bloom behind the bars of a thick-walled window must have a political message, but if so, Váša must have considered it sufficiently ambiguous, for the piece bears a stamp with his name & date on the verso

The dormer of this building is a little worse for wear with a hint of the grand building it once was. The roof tiles are stained with rust and brown streaks. The window is weatherbeaten and the glass is cloudy. The dormer dominates the centre of the photo as it rises from two sides of the building. There is elaborate carving with circles near the top and a fence missing a few ornaments at the very top.

I feel like I should really know who this person is, but I have no idea.

Anybody know who this is? It's a sticker I found on a parking garage window – #steeds

Close-up, Portrait orientation, color photo of a black and white sticker of a person's head on a window. I'm very close to the sticker and it takes up most of the lower half the frame. It appears to be floating. I think it's a man with 1970's style glasses and hair. He looks like a cross between Bill Gates and Kurt Vonnegut.

Bonus #FensterFreitag / #WindowFriday shot this week.

I've talked here before about what a game-changer it was this semester to have both classes scheduled in a particular classroom. This was for two reasons: one, it's a rare teaching space in the building with by far the best ventilation on campus, and two, it's in a room that stays locked, so I can store some of my air-cleaning equipment there between classes. The room at the top of this building with the little round window--that's it. /1

The edge of an old, beautiful, ornate university building. It's constructed with red-brown bricks and the building has cream coloured accents (including two regal-looking pillars). At the very top of the building, between and just above the pillars, is a little round window that is the object of this post. Off to the left of the part of the building with the pillars is some brown ivy with no leaves (it's still too cold). To the right of the building is a large bush and a tree, also with no leaves yet.

The window in my office on this #FensterFreitag / #WindowFriday.

A tall window with a screen that's transluscent, and only closed a bit at the top. It has a large bay that you can set things down on, but at the moment that's empty and kind of reflecting the daylight. It has two tall panes. Looking through it, you can see a couple of other university-ish-looking buildings and some tall trees. One of the trees is the type that has needles, and it's green. The other trees are bare. At ground level, one floor below, you can see a couple of strange-looking green vehicles that are probably doing some campus maintenance. The sky is a brilliant blue and there are no clouds.

This is the skylight over the circulation desk at the main branch of the Portsmouth, Ohio Public Library. The librarian was kind enough to let me lie down on the floor behind the desk to try to get the entire thing in frame -and still no joy. It's a massive window. The library is one of the many financed by Andrew Carnegie at the turn of the 20th century and is a treasure trove of interesting architectural details.

From behind and to the side, we see a nude woman with pale skin and shoulder-length brown hair sitting on the edge of a bed. She is looking out of a large open window, with grass and thin tree trunks visible outside. There is a dark purple blanket on the bed, and a chequerboard cushion. Three pictures on the floor lean against the wall with their backs to us. We can't see the woman's face, but it feels as if she has been staring like this for some time.

The idiosyncratic #windows of Gaudí's Casa Batlló in Barca.

Known locally as Casa dels ossos, (house of bones) due to those skeletal skull-like balconies. The surface of the central façade has colourful tiles that look like water lilies on the surface of a lake, reminiscent of Monet.

Curves, contours, textures, mosaic tiles. A mix of art nouveau, moderne, arabesque; inspired by nature and fantasy.

First 2 images are mine 2022, the 3rd is from wiki
