Cee’s challenge – Doors, knobs and handles
Days of rain and wind in November give me a chance to practice with my new macro lens in Cee’s challenge
PS: Oh boy, I honed in on the subject of the knobs and hinges sans doors I realize!! I also often think of doors symbolically or metaphorically so with that in mind….
This is the door to St. Magnus in Kirkwall, on Scotland’s northern island group called the Orkneys. The cathedral was built in the 1100’s by the viking earls of Orkney. As it is an older photo I used a little processing. In the close up of the door knob I used a multi lens in analog with a slight radial blur. I’ve written more about this magnificent church and the fascinating Orkneys on my Gateways and Journeys blog.
Now my slight misinterpretation of Cee’s subject in this photo of an old trunk in the basement that has a handle/hinge combination. However, ancient riddles and maps to secret doors lie within.
And here I really sidetrack (not intentionally) This is a knob that also opens a door in a manner of speaking – a door to the night sky.
