great shots VP...that is one large lion guarding that door...pipes and peach, pink, salmon, great color whatever shade it is, like the vertical, horizontal lines...that's some clapper on that bell no matter what it's for...always enjoy balconies with flowers...the fish market sign is that fired clay? someone created a work of art with rolled clay...nice!

The lion's head looks as if it might have been "saved" from the side of a building or some similar spot. Nice!

I like the doorbell, it looks so rural.

A curious, idiosyncratic "via"... Full of surprises!
God bless you!

Such lovely discoveries! I love this lion head, even if it's a bit unusual, and the goose bell is so terrific!

Che originalità ci sono in giro...anche i cavi alla fine diventano un groviglio d'arte moderna!! Ciao, Arianna

Fascinating detail shots. I like especially the network of pipes on the corner building. You have such a wonderful eye for vignettes VP.

Kaori said...

That may be the weirdest door I've ever seen! But very creative :D

JM said...
