Every Wednesday I follow along with Helena's photo pairs project (you can find out more about it here) and by the end of the day, each week, I'm determined to be on the look out for a good pairing to contribute. I finally found one when I was looking over my pictures from that other great photo event of the summer: Rinda's Photography Scavenger Hunt. Find an ornate door knocker, she said. So I did. But I couldn't help keeping an eye open for any more examples. I found both of these in Norway
From the door of a traditional Stave Church. I don't usually take pictures inside churches, but this was on the way out
Not a door knocker, you say? Well, it's hung on the front of the door where the knocker would be and he was just begging to have his picture taken. I'm sure he'd like to think his antlers were pretty ornate.
From the sublime to the ridiculous: my surplus to requirements door knockers. You'll find more pairs over at Helena's!
