Macro Monday


An old lock beautifully crafted. What a difference to today's locks. I like to imagine the people who walked around with the fitting keys fixed to their belts. Must have been quite heavy though.

  1. I've never seen such a beautiful lock before, it makes me wonder what it was guarding.

  4. Sieht fast aus wie ein Dollar-Zeichen!

  5. What a lovely patina on the metal. The shape of the lock is like a woman with her arms and hands, I'm trying to imagine the shape of the key that would fit.

  8. Der Gedanke kam mir auch. Ob unsere heutigen Schlüssel irgendwann auch mal eine gewisse Nostalgie besitzen?

  10. What a beautiful shape for a lock! and the patina is so pretty too. The image of the lock keeper makes me think of those cartoons where all the locks tied to the belt makes their pants fall half way to the floor ;)

  12. What a fabulous photo! How life has changed...
    Just imagine these days coming home in the dark trying to juggle the torch on your mobile phone to shine the light in just the right place in one hand, the weeks groceries in the other, the dog jumping all over you showering you with love, as you struggle to get the key in this lock!!! :)

  13. I love old locks and keys. The only thing I do not like are those "love locks". They are just another form of graffiti to me...
