Siciliy - Doors of Modica.




As some of you may know, I have a bit of a fascination with doors and door handles, knobs and knockers. Around Sicily you can find some fantastic examples of doors. Sounds stupid I know, but I enjoy them. Here is a collection from Modica, a place where you can stumble around a winding street only to turn a corner and see some great door, peeling paint, rusted hinges, but the fact an unloved door is standing and still attractive is amazing.

Let the doors of Modica start.









Ok, just to show it isn't only in Modica that cool doors exists..... here we are in Syracuse
In syracuse

In Noto, I swear it looks like a man with a zipped up mouth.
One day I will finally compile all my knobs, knockers and handles. I have plenty that is for sure.
