Ok.. 17th century town is young town by European standards ! Wow ... and I think 300 years of history brings out a lot of character in a town !

I wonder if the windows belong to different occupants and how much this open/close tells us about them.

I love these vintage windows.

Regina K said...

I love the old build, shutters and that detail at the top of the windows.

Leif Hagen said...

We just normally don't have shutters which we can open and close around here....

It's a little scary. The shadow looks like a squared-off person with arm raised, holding a gun. Maybe just my feverish imagination.

It is often said that opposites attract. I revere shots like this!!

The details above the windows are beautiful. Maybe the sun is still too warm to open the other set of shutters. :)

I've always wanted shutters, somehow they seem to look a bit romantic, I think Magpie might be right Ciel, when the shade moves over the other shutter will be opened I think!!

I wondered what the shadow on the open window is too...made me think of Samothrace!

I think this window is blinking! :)
Happy weekend,

Ouvert-fermé, ombre-lumière,accueillant ou pas..un joli thème, et une magnifique lumière sur ces fenêtres..

White shutters are always elegant, these also have a interesting decoration above.

That IS a coincidence about the Ozarks. I can tell you they are very scenic (though molehills compared to the Alps!) I love shutters, wish I had some - they're far superior to flimsy blinds in my opinion!

Windows... shuttered or open are charming.

Suzanne said...

Beautiful!

Cool sot of the open and closed shutters. And I like the shadow on the left too.
