I’ve walked the streets of Old Town many times. Now that I’m recording it, I sometimes find new things to capture by going macro. I’ve noticed the grape motif before in cast iron gates. Today I saw this tiny bunch of grapes on a piece of hardware near a shutter. It’s called a shutter dog, whether or not it’s in the shape of a dog. It’s function is to keep a shutter locked in the open position.
Great find. That’s a clever way to hold the shutter open. Nice composition.
Couldn’t agree more, this is lovely!
superbe,cette grappe de raisin. Bon dimanche
superb, this bunch of grape. Good Sunday
I love little details like that, I also love the wrought iron down here. Some of the fences, window grilles, etc. have a lot of beautiful details.
Marie, What a wonderfl find, and, as Annie Dillard says, “…what you see is what you get…” is really true in this case in particular and photo blogging in general!
It’s lovely…and the title is perfect.
