Shutter Obsession

"OMG, look at those Beautiful Blue Shutters!"  Photo courtesy of my Navigator and best Sista Eva! 
When we were in Europe this past summer, I became obsessed with shutters.  Enjoy a trip down shutter lane.

I shudder to think of a shutterless window in Europe.
I have the same images and another file of doors.

Brilliant photography, very similar to houses found in Spain, France and Italian countrysides.

i am from France and when i arrived in USA, i was surprised by the size of American shutters, because it was less that the half of the window??? and i understand it was just decoration.
i love at morning open the window and open the shutters to see the weather outside...
