View from The Apartment -- Tuesday afternoon

The world -- the view -- is outside the window ....
Or, is the view actually inside the window ....

Or, maybe, the view envelopes the viewer

Outside The Apartment on Castle Square, the world went by, while inside The Apartment, it was possible to view the activity taking place just outside on television broadcast live from a camera atop the Taras Widokowy viewing terrace.

The daily view of Castle Square is worth thinking about and writing about. A photograph might be worth a thousand words, but a photograph cannot reveal the significance of the experience nearly as well as words. Through a photograph, it is possible to see what the viewer saw, but not to feel what the viewer felt or to understand what the viewer experienced. Words still rule.

The Apartment is on the second floor of one of the buildings at the far end of Castle Square. Perhaps, if you look very, very carefully, you might see hands waving to you from Neverland ....

Thank you, Anita. It is not every day that I do a post, but every once and a while for me.

I do visit your blog, too, when I notice you have a new post, but I have not been very good about leaving comments.

Your photographs are outstanding, I think, and I also have had enough of winter despite the beauty of snow cover.
