Knockers and Other Three-Dimensional Beauties

Brass knocker : Venice, IT

Two things I love finding when I travel are knockers and bas-reliefs. Venice is full of some really gorgeous door knockers, like the one above. My favorite find, though, was the bas-relief below. It was tucked into a dark little alley behind a gate and was kind of obscured by a large piece of machinery sticking out of the side of the building on its left. It took a bit of acrobatic maneuvering and cropping, both on camera and in post-production, to feature this bas-relief.
