Well, It's a Knob

 

Quit trying to find beautiful objects to photograph. Find the ordinary objects so you can transform it by photographing it.

I take a lot of lics in this way, Larry, but rarely show them on SC.

The grime on the paint behind the knob suggests a rich history.
Larry Bliss: Hey, show us your hidden stuff, Ray... smile
I love these old glass knobs... we had them in our house in upstate New York when I was young.
Larry Bliss: Glass is wonderful...

Yes and well used too, Larry...
I like the saying and you did well smile
Bluebottle: Yes, why do you not open the door?
Eccles: Okay, I'll- How do you open a door?
Bluebottle: You turn the knob on your side.
Eccles: I haven't got a knob on my side!

From the goon show which you may never have heard of
Larry Bliss: I have indeed heard of the Goon Show, and listened to a few samples. I had a hard time understanding its humor, but I should try again. Any show with Peter Sellers is worthwhile
