Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate
Interpreting this week’s different photo challenges had me all a fluster.
First it was “mundane.” Turns out I don’t really like the word “mundane.” While I was trying to take a “mundane” picture I took this one and discarded it as being far too fancy, or shall I say, ornate.
Later, when I went back to look at it, I felt that even though it is very ornate by my home’s standards, it’s really a rather mundane photo after all.
I was all set to look again when I discovered that you can call it an escutcheon plate and that sealed the deal. Something with such a fancy name must be ornate!
Also the strange twist in perspective both frustrated and intrigued me. I’m not sure why it was happening and I couldn’t make it not happen and still catch the afternoon sunlight. So I’ve decided that it just makes it more ornate.
I shall call it, The Twisted Escutcheon Plate. With a name like that how could it not be ornate?
Love this Escutcheon Plate! How pretty is this!
All our interior doors have a collection of old plates and knobs like this one, fun and pretty I think!
You’re so lucky. They are terrific!
Very sound reasoning, and very ornate indeed :p
Thanks, just call me the queen of rationalization!
Very nice. I have the original door knobs for my house. Built in 1870. They are out of this world!!
Wow, I bet they are amazing and maybe even matching. We have an eclectic collection of knobs! 🙂
Ha! Very nice! And see, here I was, not participating in the ornate challenge because well, nothing in our house is ornate! Oh well 😉
I know the feeling! I made the mistake of looking at a few others before I posted, which I don’t normally do, and thought I had nothing!
