Shot at a Restaurant in Mysore, Karnataka.
The handle made of brass is in the shape of a musical instrument called Veena which fascinated me.
The door seemed to be made of Teak wood. The designs seen in the right of the shot are carvings that run through out the frame of the door.

Shot with Canon DSLR.

As is.
