Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Doors, Door Knobs and Handles

I don’t think I’ve ever taken a picture of a door handle or knob just for itself. It has always been part of a larger structure. But I do have doors. Lots of them. Old, new and in the middle. Arched, square, screened and wood. The door handles and knobs are there too — as part of the bigger picture.

      1. I love the third one, a little shed or shack of some kind. You remind me of what I think about every time I attempt a Landscape or other wide angled scenario. The camera lens does not capture easily what your eyes see naturally. But focusing on some feature that can be taken out of the big picture context, is what it does far better. Nice job on all of these.


        1. Thanks !! That little shack is Forge House, originally a shoemaker in 1756 or thereabouts, then from 1938, a small forge. I think he made hand tools. They’ve maintained it nicely and it’s a landmark, except that hardly anyone knows it’s there 🙂 I pass it on my way to one of my doctors, so it’s my turn marker. it is very small.

          It’s hard to get big landscapes unless you have somewhere to stand. Places like this, you are hemmed in by trees and rocks and roads, so I am working on “thinking small.” Ironically, Kaity is the one who kind of got me started. She has always had a great eye for details.


    1. Thanks. That really was a lucky shooting day. The right light, the right time of day, the right camera. Even though we could, in theory, go there any time, reproducing those conditions would be nearly impossible. There’s always a big element of luck in getting pictures and we got lucky.
