The rust and peeling paint lend a feeling of authenticity.

When I see this, I imagine the artist shaping and creating it. I'm glad to see it endures.

Wow, now that is a very old and weathered door knocker. Great find! I like your side view perspective on this image.

this door knocker has seen many people come and go, i'm sure! taken from a very effective angle, and showing interesting textures and stages of wear and tear! this is one part of sicilia - attractive old buildings and charming deterioration! have a nice weekend, simone!
