The handles on this Brooklyn brownstone intrigued me. At first I was attracted to the detail and design of this handsome vintage hardware. As I looked more closely I saw the scratches on tumbler face and the rust on the plates and handles. I got to thinking about how long they had graced the warm wood doors, and to how many people these front doors had been home. These door handles are small details, but they remind me to pay attention to the little things in life. Sometimes the small things can make the big picture look so much grander.
