Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2015 Week #27

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2015 Week #27

Winona is a city in and the county seat of Winona County, in the state of Minnesota. Located in picturesque bluff country on the Mississippi River… – Wikipedia

When we visit Winona, we often stop at Acoustic Café for a cup of coffee and maybe a sandwich. Whenever I was there, I would stare at the lady dressed in white standing by the second floor window across the street. I wondered who she was, whom was she waiting for.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

      Good morning, Cee. The moment I took the photo, I was thinking of your odd ball photo challenge, and then I forgot all about it ;-(
      Have a great day!

    Helen, she is not real, and is only a painting. I just don’t think putting a kerosene lamp next to a curtain is that safe. 😀

      Good morning (it’s morning here ;-), Rommel. It is a painting of a real person in the past, isn’t it? The more I stare at her, the more I feel she is alive 😉 There is something in her face that attracts me. She seems knowing that whatever she is waiting for will never happen. Many people are familiar with that feeling.
      Have a wonderful day. Every time I heard the word Greece, I think of you. I hope everything will turn out all right.
      Have a wonderful day!

    Such an interesting window, or wall. She looks very friendly, though. I hope she hasn’t scared anyone drinking their coffee across the street 😀 I wonder does she light up at night. That would be an interesting sight. I’m guessing probably not. Hope you had a good time in Winona 🙂

      Ha ha, Mabel, now you made me curious. I think I have to go there at night to check it out one of these days. Winona is a small college town. It has good concerts during summer. A good place to visit!
      Thanks for commenting, Mabel. Have a wonderful day/night.

    Oh, I love what an oddity this is Helen. Words will not fit into the picture but I imagine she leaves the lamp by the window as a welcome home for her man. Oh I can think more stories. May I use the photo credit to you
