Friday Photo - A Room with a View

I love taking photos looking out windows - I love the way the view is framed, and even enhanced, by the window frame.  I took these photos at Fort St. James in central British Columbia last summer.   Fort St. James was founded by Simon Fraser in 1806 and is one of B.C's oldest permanent European settlements .  It was an important fur trading post right into the twentieth century.  
I've selected two photos taken there, because I really couldn't decide between them and I'm not likely to post something so similar again.  I think I like the first one best, but then again, I like the old glass jars in the window of the second with the view of the hill across Stuart Lake.

Which photo do you prefer?

p.s. Don't forget to enter my giveaway (it ends on Sunday, March 21st).


  1. I like the second view with the glass jars in the window, the field, the log fencing, lake and hills. Very nice.


  2. the second one is my favorite too!

  3. I like them both, but the second one is my fav!

    Kat :)

  4. Looks like the second photo is winning so far. I have to say it does make me want to go and collect antique glass jars.

  5. I love both for their angles and separate views...they're lovely, Grace!
