Design snapshot: Frame it to fathom it

One weekend I scanned the vast panorama that surrounded me as I approached the beach; then I peeked into a nearby shed and marveled at this window that captured the setting concisely. I stopped and drank in the multiple framed views composed by the individual window panes. I had just been looking at the same beach grass and body of water seconds before I spotted the shed window, but it hadn't riveted my attention until I saw it from within the shed, through the frame of the window. What had appeared boundless and somewhat unfathomable when outside was parsed into distinct intelligible moments inside, thanks to the modest double-hung window with six lites over six lites. Surprisingly, this type of parsed view can be far more rewarding than a gaping one.
