They were actually natural examples of what is called “frosted glass”; they looked like they could have been used for bathroom windows.
So, seeing that I couldn’t shoot through them, I decided to photograph the windows themselves. Getting the light just right for this kind of work is the tricky bit; it entails a deal of waiting, for something that might not happen at all.
