Guidelines or Rules...


Guidelines : Versoix, CH

Just a few hundred feet over the border into Switzerland is an Ebeniste and Brocante (furniture maker and antique dealer.) I think the owner also does some copper sculpting, because this is the weather vane over one of his buildings. Every time I see it, all I can think of is that line from Pirates of the Caribbean where Captain Barbossa tells Elizabeth that the Pirates' Code "are more like guidelines than actual rules." Ironically, the road out of Ferney through Versoix is known as the smugglers' route.

Cool weather vane and story.

Nice light on the sail. Positively draws the eye into the photo.

Larry: Isn't it, though? The funny thing is, when you drive past, you almost miss this vane. You have to slow down to really see it.

Carolyn: I liked that about it, too! The sun was starting to set, so the light was perfect.
