Shadow Shot Sunday 122 - Nice

















In Nice there is an Antiques Quarter located between Place Garibaldi and the port centred around the street named Catherine Segurane. Wandering along there the other day, I noticed this rather attractive door knocker casting its shadow. For more shadow shots this week, click here for Shadow Shot Sunday hosted by Tracy in Brisbane. Enjoy!

I've never seen such cool door knockers! I love these, they'd make cool earrings or necklaces.

I can't help but wonder if the rest of the person, who belongs to the hand, is standing behind the door. It is certainly an interesting door knocker and you have very good eyes to have caught the shadow that it casts. I hope your acclimatization to the niceties of Nice is proceeding well.

What a terrific door knocker! I love it! And what superb shadow shot for the day, Catherine, as always! It's not hard to tell that you're enjoying your new home and I'm so happy for you! Always look forward to your pics for the day! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

If you're going to have a door knocker, you might as well have one with flair!

SHADOW PLAY

Shadows like horses, shadow likes chicks,
Shadows like houses built with red bricks;

Shadows much taller than a high wall—
No matter their shape, I love them all!

The hand is a bit disarming (sorry!) as it sits on the door Do we knock or does the 'hand' inquire as to our requested entrance? The neat decoration makes us wonder...

Cassie said...

That is really an interesting door knocker. (I like it's detail...even a ring!) It does cast a neat shadow too. Happy SSS.

The door feature is a work of art enhanced by the shadow! Beautiful!

Hello Catherine

So good to see a fellow blogger in this region and with such lovely photos. Welcome to the south of France. I'm going to have fun looking back at your shots of our area.

I have www.mentondailyphoto.com and www.montecarlodailyphoto.com and I live in Gorbio, a medieval village above Menton. Perhaps we'll meet up one day?

There is another lovely blogger in Nice - Malyss' Chronicles from the Shore.

Peter from Paris (the adorable Peter from Paris!) told me about you.

love Jilly x

Hi Jilly - I would love to meet up sometime and get together with a fellow blogger on the Riviera - I have been following your blogs since I decided to move here and have really enjoyed your photos...
