Originally published as part of a post on walking Dubrovnik’s city walls, this image sprung to mind immediately when I thought of windows.
These two school girls were taking a break just before their bell rang for class. I had also just reached a particularly tranquil part of my walk with no other tourists nearby. There was a sense that the silence could be broken at any moment and it was; by the shrill bell.
The obvious perception of a window is something to look out of, however what I love about this photo is that the window itself has framed the girls and I’m looking in towards them. The strong midday sun also cast deep shadows into the building, which made me wonder what sort of rooms were behind my subjects.
