The affinities between photography and architecture are at their most focused in the imagery of windows and their close cousins (mirrors, reflective panes, opaque and translucent panels). Every photographic frame is a building in miniature, with its vertical "walls" and horizontal (and metaphorical) "ceiling and floor." A walk down a street with a camera involves resisting and (eventually) giving in to these ready-made images which announce themselves to the photographer's eye. Windows are like photos that demand to be taken, with an insistance like a whisper, "We are already photographs anyway — just do it already — take us with you."
