To gaze at or through a window is to peer through a portal to the known and the unknown. Windows are also highly symbolic of the “other side” and perhaps the future. The world is revealed to us while looking outside a window from the inside. We may be stirred with excitement or cautioned by fear. Peering through a window from the outside to the inside makes us curious about what may be happening inside a building or dwelling. PictureCompete is seeking your best representation of the “World of Windows.”.
