Artist's Description

I was on a bit of a crusade to find and photograph some antique fixtures and was not having much luck until I visited B&B Hardware (Long Beach, California), which specializes in items for historic home restoration. I became fascinated with a bin full of glass doorknobs (childhood reminiscences of my grandmother’s house) and was fortunate that the shop owners were happy to let me take as many photos as I wished. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5, 1/25 sec., ISO 1600, mixed incandescent and daylight, handheld) Texture from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures
