The dark pastel green really worked a miracle to project the door knocker. And, the creative mind behind the door knocker deserve grand compliments. Damn unique.

George said...

This is a very appropriate -- but beautiful -- door knocker. I don't see many door knockers these days.

Love that door knocker. Great shot.

Lynne said...

Eye catching. It would be nice to see more door knockers on doors. They add a personal touch.
Do you ever feel awkward taking photos of someones property? I sometimes think that the owner, (or a nosy neighbour) might be watching and object. It doesn't necessarily stop me. Just makes me look furtively around! Thereby probably drawing attention to myself!!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful door knob. Unique design.

what a funny knocker?

Shammickite said...

dare I say it?
OK. I will.
Knock Knock! Who's there?
I'll leave it to you to finish the joke off.

Ash said...

Margie - Thank you

Cyclopseven - Indeed. Hats off to the designer!

George - Thank you. I guess they're more common in England ?

Sandeep - Thank you so much! Finding beauty in tucked away places - THAT is my mission statement as a photographer :-)

Niranjan - Thank you

Eden - Thank you.

Lynne - Completely agree. Plus, they're kind of romantic, arent they! To answer your question, yes, I sometimes feel awkward taking photos of other people's property. And I regret to say I have missed many a great shot by this hesitation. These days, I try not to think too much about it. I tell myself that if they object, I'll apologize and offer to delete the photo immediately.

Rajesh, Krishna - Thank you

Monsoon Dreams - Thank you. So nice to hear from you!

Cloudia, Ann - Thank you

Shammickite - Alright. I'll finish that for you :-)

Knock knock!
Who's there?
Madame.
Madame who?
Madame foot's caught in the door!
