Nice! I love old wood and metal...

It is the little details that make a picture like this. The doorknob plate is fastened with two different nails and an oversized screw. There should be a plate around the keyhole but that's missing. This was not done by a craftsman. It looks like something I would do. Well, maybe not that bad.

I love how the knob is all cattywumpus. You know that it jiggles and dances around in that door.

As Tulsa Gentleman noticed, I also was drawn to the unprofessional look of this door fitting! The uncentred door knob, the well worn pane, and the different nails and lack of keyhole plate. Yet, it likely worked just fine for the handyman who made it.

This is my first visit to your blog. Very, very nice. I like this doorknob, the way it's easier to turn than a round one. The portrait below of the angelic boy is just wonderful. Great work!

Your photograph reminds me of my son and his appreciation of subjects that may not be obvious to other people with a camera - simple yet stunningly beautiful in their own right.
