Door Knocker Detail

Door Knocker Detail [enlarge]

Here is one of the many silent witnesses of Barcelona's history, resisting the passing of time, worn out by the action of so many hands that are here no more, bitten by its feline companion for ages, casting its monotonous call: knock...knock...knock. There are many of these in the city. Here are some others I published in the past: Lion Head Door Knocker, Rusty Door Knocker, Vandalized Door Knocker and Knocker on Chocolate Color Door.

    Muy buena Carlos. Una imagen muy directa y efectiva.

  2. Guauu, qué miedo llamar a una puerta así! quién abriría al otro lado? seguro que hay una habitación enoooorme, muy oscura y fría y un mayordomo de 2 metros con aspecto de poco amigos...
    uf, podemos divagar demasiado! lo mejor es que llames tú y nos lo cuentes otro día ok?
    Un saludote!

    very nice perspective. door knockers like these always reminds me of horror movies where a scary butler always opens the door. haha! :p

  4. Ah, keepers of the gate. It is a shame more of these are not in use here anymore...they are quite elegant and more often reflect the persona of the person inside.

    Wonderfully powerful image. Your choice of vantage point makes for a very strong composition. Very nice capture.

  7. -Gracias Dsole por ese saludo tan afable que tienes siempre. Aún no sé quién va a salir por esa puerta. Yo desde luego no pienso entrar! :)
    -Claire, you are right. I love terror movies. Although there's a very funny scene on Young Frankenstein...Thanks
    -As I always say, I love that way you have to put up things when you write. Thanks Smiling Dog
    -Gracias Sapet. Me ha encantado tu foto.
    -Thanks Chris I thought it would be more gloomy and mysterious as taken from below.
