Green door hardware

Yesterday's shot featured the decrepit door in the austere brick wall. Today I get closer to a different door and look more closely at the old-fashioned hardware and the peeling paint. I debated whether to crop out the sliver of brick visible on the right, but decided to keep to to gain a sense of place.

I love that Harry .. I felt I wanted to see a little more for the brick, but that's personal taste only.
