Shut tight

These are real shutters covering a real window. Although it looks like the shutters are more-or-less permanently shut, in fact painted shut, they are practical protective coverings.

What I find strange is that many buildings these days have fake shutters. Panels that are mounted to the sides of a window pretending to be shutters. They are just a visual gimmick and nothing more.

So which is stranger... permanently closed shutters, or fake shutters?
