Travel theme: Unexpected

When I was in Florence, Italy I wanted to see the most famous places and sights of the city.  As I went from one landmark to another I walked through residential areas.  When I looked around I noticed something that I didn’t expect to see.  I usually think of shutters as decorative, but here they were both opened and closed and it looked like they were quite versatile.

Later that day I saw this building and thought that the pattern of the shutters was eye-catching.

These pictures are among my souvenirs of Italy and just as meaningful to me as this photograph I took in Florence.

  1. Lovely photographs, as expected! You have a great eye. I do so find shutters enchanting, wish we incorporated them more here in the U.S.A. My 100 year old ranch house had the, but they were removed decades ago. I have seen photos and the addition of shutters adds such charm and character, not to mention shelter.

  2. Well seen and captured,Meg ! Most unusual shutters indeed, and they lend so much charm to the imposing buildings ! Doda :)
    PS : The last Florence image is gorgeous !

  3. Grand shutters indeed. Of course, I love most of the architecture in Italy. I think I’ll just scroll back through your photos and imagine myself looking out from behind those windows….
