Images: Windows of Appenzell, Switzerland

There’s something about the simplistic and thoughtful details found all around Switzerland that make it particularly appealing to me. Everything is just so darn cute.

One of the things I most enjoyed as we walked around the streets of Appenzell, Switzerland, were the windows, shutters, curtains and overflowing flower boxes. Every single home and storefront had a different look and feel … all because of the windows. I could have snapped photos of every building we passed, but here are just a few that I caught on camera:

      All of the homes and buildings looked so warm and cozy. One guy even tossed open his window shades and shouted out a hello to our guide.

      It was exceptionally clean, too. It’s nice to know that there are places like this tucked into the hidden corners of the world.

      You should definitely go back! I would love to see what you could capture on camera there; I’m sure it would be stunning. I lack in photography skills, and I was still impressed with what I managed to take.

      There were so many more windows then just these, Jeff. I had to pick and choose what windows I was going to take photos of because they were all so fantastic. No detail was left behind!
