Kitchen door handles

After searching for a subject outdoors I decided to try and make something out of our kitchen door handles at home. This is setup and backlit by my torch. Two exposures, one for the left hand side of the door and one for the right.

I'll try, but up to my neck in cooking and decorating at the moment.

Grabbed a quick handle at lunchtime. With a bit of Noir - I'm feeling a bit noir at the moment, not to mention dusty.

I wonder if this weeks challenge could end with a twist.

OK. These are the door handles on the TV unit in our lounge.
Processed here in Sepia (unusually for me), perhaps because they are bronze handles on oak wood, so it looked more 'natural' to my eye.

No twist required for these Eddie - just a simple pull. Smile

Ok time is up - be back in a bit with a result.

A high quality if not quantity of entries.

Somnath - Great to see this entry - wonderful image drawing your eye to the guards hands - but hands more than handles perhaps - although he may well handle himself well... I tried to work out when the image might have been taken in UK time (?before the topic was announced) but couldn't manage the maths.
Malc - very droll - fork handles with for' candles - I prefer to use candlesticks myself but perhaps this is a Norwegian custom...
Eddie - nice symmetry - couldn't work out where the torch was to light this at first until I noticed you had said it was 2 exposures..
Alison - nice composition of your old scissor(?) handles - look a bit like eyes
Chris - nice bit of film noir effect - pleased you found time in your decorating
Linda - nice set of knobs - the sepia effect works well.

There has to be a winner and this week my choice is Eddie - for the abstract look and clever lighting effect.

Well done and over to you.
