I delivered these curtains this morning and getting a good picture of them was not easy. The problem was the brightness of the room, even though it is cloudy outside. The flash wouldn't work (can't force it on my little camera) and without it, all I got was a black blob.
Closed they are fairly flat. The only time they will be closed is first thing in the morning when the sun is beating in and blinding everyone. Today it wasn't a problem.
The curtains are inter-lined to help with the sun, both in protecting the fabric and cutting the brightness of the room without having to use blackout lining. As you can see, the view out the windows is just lovely.
And this is the view from the large window: San Diego Bay and the San Diego Yacht Club. Not bad, huh?
