Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

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.keyhole

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?

    Very nice. I have the original door knobs for my house. Built in 1870. They are out of this world!!

  4. Ha! Very nice! And see, here I was, not participating in the ornate challenge because well, nothing in our house is ornate! Oh well 😉
