Open shutters, locked gates

Open shutters on Danish building

Open exchange -- 2010

Many of the old buildings here in the tropics have wooden shutters over their windows, but no glass or screens. When the shutters are opened to let in the light, there is also an open exchange of air, insects, and more. What is inside can go out and what is outside can come in.

How different is the message from the old gate with its heavy chain and lock, surely stronger than the gate itself!
