Taken in one of the old cobbled streets of Rye - this door was tiny, well not much taller than me which isn't difficult Wink the door knocker was tiny too so went in close for this one, was about colour and texture for me. The knocker represents Rye Church - some info' below...

For more than 900 years the Parish Church of Rye, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, has dominated the hill on which the old town stands.

When the building of the present church was started, early in the 12th century, the town itself and much of the surrounding area was still held, under a Royal deed of gift, by the Abbey of Fecamp in Normandy. It is because of this link with Fecamp and the fact that it had become an important member of the Cinque Ports Confederation that Rye has such a magnificent church, which has sometimes been called 'the Cathedral of East Sussex'.

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome
Regards - Sarah J x

This is lovely Sarah. The limited colour palette allows the tones to be fully appreciated, excellent textures and very well composed. Lovely study

The overall effect of the contrasting textures between the wood and the metal alloy is a nice combination

But what I like most is the detailed ornamental work and the verdigris and orange of the bronze knocker. ( I believe it is bronze, not brass )

The overall tones of the shot make the texture important the oxidization of the brass knocker and the shinier worn parts give added interest.

Well seen.

A lovely place - I remember visiting Rye on a day out whilst on holiday in Eastbourne back in the early 90s. You could go up the clocktower, which I did, and it provides a great view of the town. I timed it (not on purpose) to be passing the bell at the top just as it happened to strike!
Anyway, an excellent close-up here, Sarah, and captured the lovely tones and textures in the wood Smile
