This is a lovely art deco geometric window I spotted while driving through a council estate in Aberdeen. It is good to think that even council houses were thoughtfully detailed.
I especially notice windows when it is cold and dark in winter (or in Aberdeen, most of the time). Many older houses here have gorgeous stained glass windows which are beautiful with the light shining through. As you pass outside you think how cosy and welcoming it must be inside.
Where I grew up in West Bridgeford, the houses in the street next to mine had different round stained glass windows by the doors (photo 3 with windmill pattern) showing the sea with boats, the countryside and so on, all in a lovely 1940s(?) style.
Look for stained glass today!
