Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

A window can be a portal to the soul, to the world, or to a person.  And for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, the word WINDOW reminded us of a recent trip to the new Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Designed by architect Yann Weymouth, the hurricane-proof rectangular building utilizes 18-inch thick walls from which spring the “enigma,” a geodesic glass bubble facing beautiful Tampa Bay. Standing 75 feet at its tallest point, the “enigma” is made up of 1062 triangular pieces of glass, becoming not only a window on the gardens and waterfront of St. Pete, but also a place for standing and reflecting on the unique art housed within the museum itself.
