I had to snag this shot while I had the chance because it represents something you don't see much of any more. A window in a high rise office building that actually opens. But as I was waiting for the participants to gather for the Wake County Domestic Violence Task Force's Silent March to honor Jammie Shantel Street, I spotted this open window in the county courthouse building. My understanding is that the courthouse is scheduled to be replaced, and I think it unlikely that its successor will have this open air feature.

I am always impressed when I see an window that can be opened in an office or other non-residential building .. excellent catch!

Nice catch! That is unusual these days.

An open window. In a big building. How'd that one get by without being screwed shut?
