Some of Hubby’s favorite items to capture on “film” throughout Italy are the incredible array of doors and their knockers.
Most serve a simple purpose – to allow someone, at some point in time, to actually KNOCK on a door! Imagine that, right?
This one, as serious as his regal expression seems, has become a Junk Mail co-conspirator….poor guy!
One of my faves, even though they are door handles. Nice wide double doors. The patina is lovely.
This one seems to carry the weight of the world…on his tongue, mind you!
Here’s one that we saw on our last visit, and thought it would be fun to share – now with a higher purpose, no doubt. Wonder if there was ever a door here? Or if the carriage was tied here? Or maybe a lantern?
If only this little guy could share his (many!) stories from the past.
