"Details are the building blocks of meaning.
They may be small things, but they can often represent large ideas.
When I am looking for good pictures, I look first at the entire subject, and then I study its parts.
I often find myself moving in to see even more.
The closer I get the more potential I find for larger meaning."
This brass door knocker is hand made and hand engraved.
Its design is based on the Hand of Fatima, motif commonly found in Morocco.
The hand motif, also called a khamsa (from the Arabic word for "five") protects against the evil eye.

Le jolis "détail" dont le relief est saisissant tant ta photo est nette hors cadre. Bravo PS : Nom d'un chien, je ne reçois plus tes avis d'uplaod, est-ce bien normal?
