Why door knockers?

Why not?

My mother always takes pictures of small details when she visits foreign places.  She’ll go to Japan and not take a single picture of a temple, but a hundred pictures of leaves and sea glass.  I picked up some of this habit from her, but I still have my father’s deep appreciation for grand buildings as well.   These images are all from around Italy on our last trip.

Today seemed like a good day to share these knockers.

Hoping some doors open for everyone this week!  (^_^)

And this Chianti farmhouse door is just cool without adornment…
