It’s the Little Things

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.

    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!
