Months ago I gave a copy of this shot to Antonio Lovison, friend and fellow JPGer (Lowison). Days earlier when he saw this on my LCD screen, he got excited and said, "oh....Deborah I really like. Where you get this?" Then he joked about going off to find where I captured this within a doorway in the Tuscan village of Montalcino.
Have no idea why, but this was the first of my images that popped into my head for this theme. At first I didn't think it was a good fit, but then figured Strength in Numbers means different things. Without the number of bamboo strips in this shot there not only wouldn't be a door hanging, but no picture representing the area where this hangs. As of yet I haven't come across a single screen door in Italy. During the warm days of spring and fall and especially during the heat of summer, door hangings, such as this, cover open doorways, allowing outside air in and providing privacy.
