This was a tough theme. I almost gave up until I remembered taking these photos while in Santa Margherita Ligure...
And the two windows together...

How amazing such a painting. Did you take it in a library? Anyway I think it's a great entry two wrinkled faces behind the windows and the wrinkled curtains hanging overhead.

That really is an amazing painting. I already visited from Snap2 (I'm the wrinkled clothes half of that, ha) but came back via the link on my personal blog which I also appreciated you visiting. I'm glad I did because these windows are so interesting. For some reason I looked at them differently this go around and could see the whole or at least the two windows, and people, as part of a bigger work.

Oh those are beautiful wrinkles! I love the trompe-l'œil on the buildings in Santa Margherita.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks everyone for your comments. I really did have a hard time with this theme until I remembered these photos I took. I enjoyed all of your posts also.
I probably should have put an explanation on this post. The building is painted using the trompe-l'oeil technique which creates optical illusions, making windows, shutters, bricks, etc. appear to be three-dimensional. This technique is used in many of the towns on the Ligurian Coast. Trompe l'Oeil means "Trick the Eye". I think there is an Italian word for this also, but am not sure of it right now.
