A mild, hazy day exploring the back streets of Florence.
Polished wood, carved stone, an iron fan light and monumental door knockers -there must be hundreds of variations on this theme in the old city
A timeless warehouse door near the river Arno
17th century symmetry in Florence
Carved wood in place of paired door knockers
Weathered wood and an underwater take on The Girl with the Pearl Earring by L’Arte sa nuotare
No longer a way out or in
A grand entrance for angels only with a modest door for mortals alongside
Another half hidden back door – old wood disguised as coursed stone to avoid breaking up the elegant lines of the building
Black painted wood – weathered or ‘distressed’? – and a pebble door knob
‘Love your neighbourhood – protect it from racism and gentrification’ – Florence – April 2018
Tall and small – Florence – April
