Nice photos. I always have me eyes open for windows when I'm out with the camera. Not sure why could be that I'm looking for the symmetry or something.

How different these shots would look with the shutters open. Love all three.

One of these shutters is not like the others. Makes for more interest in an already lovely setting.

I was just about to leave on a comment on your latest post when your comment came thru on pastels. You are so right. These are newer, Menton's are older - well at least the ones on the photo.

I just love that final reflection shot. Beautiful.
