Monochrome Monday: WINDOW



This is one of the capiz or mother of pearl windows in a church in the northern Philippine province of Nueva Vizcaya. It's a typical material for many windows here in the country: it blocks most the glare while at the same time letting some light through. The tandem for capiz windows usually would be a ventanilla or a small grilled window just below it- to allow the breeze to enter the home.

It's my first time to join the Monochrome Monday bloggers. I am excited and hopeful that this blogging prompt will be a window through which I can see the beauty of the world in sepia tone or black white.

(Interesting that photos I took of another part of this same church was the one I used when I first joined the photoblogging prompt Litratong Pinoy or Filipino Photos.)
