Candles gleaming inside. . .painted candy canes on the tree. . . These words from Christmas Waltz paint the perfect picture.
Of course, Christmas might be old news where you live, but here in Russia, Orthodox Christmas is Monday, January 7. And, as for frosted windowpanes, have a look at mine! This view is out my kitchen window and onto the balcony.
I think the patterns are exquisite -- even through the security bars which are almost pretty as far as security bars go. But they're a must for first-floor apartment dwellers and a simply a wise investment for second-floor folks such as myself. And they do add a bit of visual texture to those windowpanes.
Say, here are my best iced window shots from last winter, and in my humble opinion, they're positively breathtaking.
