I Heart Macro - Doors Knobs of Florence Love.

Hello dear friends,

It is Winter here in Australia, and although the sun IS shining today, I sadly, have no flowers in my garden to speak of, so todays macro post is about door knobs in Florence.

I just love interesting doors and door knobs. My own front door is not THAT interesting, maybe that is why I love to see others?

No, I just love old and quaint, strange and different... and some of these fit the bill in those areas!
It does also make me think about who lives behind these wonderful doors with their  equally wonderful door knobs....?

Come along and take a look. Hope you enjoy them, too.














Well, I went a bit overboard with those, but I just love them all!

I love old doors and try to take pictures of them when I can. I like how you went for more detail and captured the beautfy of the doorknobs themselves. That 5th one there is particularly interesting!

I thoroughly enjoyed these. I love old door knobs too and old iron hinges! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jenny - I love ALL your knobs, but I reckon I love the first one the most. I'm a sucker for wood, and I love the carving in the first pic. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful doorknobs!

What a cool collection of door knobs. I especially love the second one, the colour together with the brass is beautiful.

Kathy said...

Fantastic idea! There is so much detail in these door knobs they make a wonderful subject! Which is your favorite?

Oh my front door is a stinker as well! These are beautiful!!! I love seeing photos of old doors - esp from France - some of the doors you can't even imagine who first made them! Great Shots Jenni! XOXO

Thank you for sharing the door knobs! I love the pictures of old doors but have never really paid attention to the details of door knobs! So thanks for opening up something new to look at!

Makes me want to go out and get a cool door knob!! Of course, boats don't have doorknobs...at least sailboats don't! :)))

Jenni said...

Oh Mary, that's right you live on a yacht...I think that sounds fantastic and so glam. Who needs doors when you live on a yacht, right? Well maybe a little door or two! Thanks for popping by.

Ooh, LOVE this! I'm especially partial to the top and bottom ones.

We never see great door knobs like these here in the states. How beautiful!

kim said...

Can we please have a replica made of the last one so we can have a beautiful piece of jewelry?? Wonderful collection of pictures. Hope your "winter" is treating you well

Flowers or not, these are AMAZING! What fun subjects. Thank you for sharing them.

Holly said...

I love doorknobs too! Plain is good, but I just love those ornate, dark metal ones :)

Anthony Blommel said...

Hmm... maybe it's about time that I change my doorknob for one of these. Then again, it might be too much for my house. But yeah, these door knobs are indeed interesting.
