Pregnant windows...



On one of our walks we came across this abandoned farmhouse. I do not know if this is the proper word for this type of windows, however if I am not mistaken they are called like this because of the shape as they look like pregnant bellies. It is actually funny because they are called pregnant windows and they are housing birds' nests at the moment !!

Heh, that's a cute term for that! While they're made to protect the windows and the contents inside, they're forged in such a way that they act as ornaments as well. From those bars, you kind of feel a dash of mystery...
