Great details to notice!

These are great knockers! Or door decoratives (lion). I often notice and enjoy them, or special door handles... and that would make another interesting subject for a collaborative blog...

It just proves how we start to notice things because we are now photo bloggers.
Love that lion.

I would hate to have to polish them but would love to have them.

An angel, one lion and a sweet dove ( well, I imagine it is a stylished bird!), amazing details for doors, all very polish and well care.They are adorable details, I imagine there good produts to polish and it doesn't get much work. :)

I love your collection here! Especially the first one...the things you don't notice ;-)

I'm sure you knocked on the doors and ran away!


Great series.

The lion is a nice one. He does not look too silly like some of the others we've seen in Livorno!

I love handles and I photographed a lot. Especially in Malta there are a lot of them.

All three are beautiful, but I like the angel handle (or is it a knocker?) best. I'm glad you finally noticed it. Love the textures of the different woods too.
