Those open shutters are superb, Ginnie...Nature is creating another work-of-art from her reclamation efforts.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. Nature clearly knew there'd be photo ops like this! smile
Superb image Ginnie... the shutters could use some scraping and paint... but then the picture would not have the same effect...
have a fun weekend with Astrid in Luxembourg....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter...and it was a FABULOUS long weekend. OMG, we were short of eyes!

Have a great time there Ginnie. I will now read Lisl's undoubted words of wisdom
Ginnie Hart: We had a splendid time, Chris, in every way. We even talked about you and Chad, wondering if you've ever traveling there?? Thanks.

The weather is taking a toll of those shutters
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Adrian. And no one seems to give a hoot. smile
I will indeed! Hope you are having a great weekend
Ginnie Hart: We had a fabulous time in and around Luxembourg, Bill. Thanks.
Coat of paint wouldn't go amiss here,Ginnie,that may spoil your shot though.smile
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Frank. A bit of wabi-sabi never hurt anyone. smile
These window shades have seen some years I suspect Ginnie. Hope you had a good break in Luxembourg, no doubt Astrid has to use her holiday entitlements with some care to make the most of them. Will check on V.& V.later on.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian, and oh, yes. Astrid picks-n-chooses how she uses her vacation days off. In this case, Luxembourg was another "trip of a lifetime" for us...except one we can possibly take more than once!
Judging from their current condition, Ginnie, it appears these shutters have not been closed for many a year. They've certainly given you an excellent subject to photograph, though.

Thank you for letting us know of Lisl's post at V&V. She really knows how to tell a story.

Hope you & Astrid are having a wonderful time in Luxembourg.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. We had a FABULOUS 4 days away in the Luxembourg area. Oh my. We were totally "short of eyes."
Nice shot
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Preyi.

Ginnie Hart: HA! Hellos all around, Louis. We had a fabulous time!
I love the textures! Enjoy your stay in Luxembourg.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks you, Richard, and we did! smile

Original and rusty is fast becoming the must have Ginnie. Too much plastic in our world.
Ginnie Hart: That's a perfect way to say it, Chad!

Enjoy your stay in Luxembourg ladies. A country close to my hear cos it used to broadcast the only good music when I was young 'un!
Ginnie Hart: Astrid says this is so true...Radio Luxembourg brings back good memories for her, too. WOW. A bit of trivia about which I had no clue, George. Thanks for sharing. smile

Oooooo....look at that rust! Love rust!!! Hope you and Astrid had a good trip.
Ginnie Hart: Ooooooh, thank you, Sue. Wabi-sabi, as Robin would say! We had a WONDERFUL trip in every way. Short of eyes!
Love those decaying shutters!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Tom. Thanks.
