A collection of windows from Mexico (and a few from neighboring Guatemala) with security bars, gratings and grilles.
Talavera tile wall and a barred window in Puebla, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Curtains and geraniums soften the effect of a barred window in a blue wall in Mexico City, my favourite city in the world.
Orange walls backdrop a large philodendron in Coyacan, a pricey neighbourhood in Mexico City, where you can visit Frida Kahlo’s house, the Casa Azul.l. This grille is not to keep people out but to keep the vegetation in! (San Angel, another neighbourhood in Mexico City)

Lovely photos of some wonderful windows. I love that so many “security bars” look much more like delightful decorations. Imagination at work! Thank you!
Yes, somehow these decorative bars make ‘security’ look attractive!
Oh I adore the weathered look on most of your windows. Wonderful post for both challenges 😀
Mexico and Guatemala are masters at gorgeous weathering!
