These pictures surely would have been a joy for Dali. Look a bit surreal, as they are all closed, yet beautiful. Please have a wonderful weekend.

An interesting combination of windows and buildings. But why are the windows all shuttered - especially in that first building which now consists of offices and apartments...

Maybe they're facing the afternoon sun?

Great set of images. Very nicely composed all of them.

I like the windows in the Mercato Centrale but the others look like prison windows. Maybe the people in those offices feel that way. MB

Windows are fun to photograph.

Very interesting windows. I like the colours.

@ Jacob - When I took these pictures both buildings were still empty, with some minor works still in progress.

@ MB - You are right, welcome to our cramped way of life...

I love this series of windows. I was wondering if it was so hot that all the shutters were closed but you've already answered.

Oh, about the statue in Versailles, it isn't patience! You'll see tomorrow. :-)
