We’re in that in-between time where the trees are still naked and Alexandria is not at her best, so I’m going in for a closer look. Those of you familiar with Doorways Around the World won’t find it surprising that I’ve also found door knockers of interest.

Reminds me of my former (Canadian) husband’s helpless laughter one day on the London Underground when he saw an ad for a very upscale manufacturer of fancy door knockers. The picture was a doorknocker shaped like a fish and the headline was “Have you ever been knocked up by a fish?” He had to explain to (British) me why it was funny. Knock up in the U.K. simply means to knock on the door and wake someone up!
Well, Passante, what a racy message so early in the day!! Marie, This is a wonderful photo. Anyone would be honored to be knocked up by this one!
Passante, that IS funny! Haven’t found any fish knockers, but I did find one that looks sort of like a porpoise. I expected to find more with a nautical theme, since Alexandria was once an important port city. But you’ll be seeing what I did find.
Kate, more interesting knockers to come!
