The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is all about windows: looking out, looking in, or windows themselves.
OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: Photographing windows from the outside can be tricky. A reflection on the glass may obscure the true subject that is inside. However, a reflection can also add a nice effect.

INSIDE LOOKING OUT: It could be a scene of the life outside, or it could just be weather!

OUTSIDE LOOKING AT: Sometimes the windows themselves are interesting or attractive.
A small window with grates above the entrance to a shop at Las Bóvedas in Cartagena, Colombia, is a vestige of the times when it was used as a prison.
