I am normally drawn to the old doors - in this case the old bolt - This photo was taken on a recent trip to Spain - whilst in Barcelona my husband & I visited a lovely part of the City called El Pueblo a tourist attraction where all the buildings/houses have been duplicated from various regions in Spain.

How beautiful detail! I suppose it is so rusty it doesn't open any more. Artistic shot, excellent colours and light.

The Passing of Time and that's another of your treasure, a specialist subject bursting with texture and detail of crusty gritty rust that make me want to scrape the monitor screen! Great point of view and full of natural charm, nice grotty colours and awareness of your surroundings. Fantastic shot, you've captured the hidden beauty really, really well!

Great close-up on this rusty old bolt. I like very much the mood engendered by the low light, which ideally complements the subject. Superb rendering of tones and textures.

C'est le genre de photos que ma femme aime beaucoup réaliser. Un beau jeu d'ombres et de lumière et une netteté qui fait ressortir la texture du métal.

Excellent colours and very interesting details in this forged equipment. Quite a different but very good contribution.

Graet close proximity with the rusty lock, Dawn.
Well collected it's smallest shining spotes, and brown tone iron frame.
It appears as even a pice of rusty metal has some artistic virtue, in photography.
Have a nice week ahead,

I've noticed your fascination with old doors and here's a very interesting detail of your observation. Nicely captured, I'd never have thought a rusty old thing can be so photogenic :-)
Have a great week!

Excellent close-up of the old bold with fine details. Good use of flash - well done
For the next two weeks I will be travelling with very limited internet access, but after that I will be back to TE on a daily bases.

this is your 100th picture on TE, congratulations and best wishes for more postings from your wonderful travels! This is a fine composition that gives us the character of the old door through certain details. You've treated the old bolt like an artwork and brought out its fascinating shapes and textures with excellent sharpness and ingenious lighting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

C'est un très beau plan rapproché. Ces vieilles pièces de métal me fascinent également. Elles ont une longue histoire que j'aimerais découvrir. Beau rendu de la lumière.

Hi, dear Dawn,
Your 100th photo published in the site. Congratulations!
And you celebrate it with this gorgeous close-up on this old bolt of a door of the "Poble Español" (Spanish Village), in Barcelona.
The image has a great sharpness, and we can see all the details of the iron of the bolt, its textures and its colour, shining under a good light.
Simply, a wonderful composition, perfectly seen and executed.
We also remember our lovely meeting in Barcelona with you and Gus.
Our warmest regards for both of you, from Barcelona,
Pili and Josep
