Doors of Paris & Madrid

 In Europe, you are very aware of the architecture, sometimes even the smallest aspects of it.  A few years ago in Paris, I noticed unique doorknobs and door hardware.  I took a few photos, and I'm featuring the ones I liked best in today's blog.  Most were on houses and businesses right on the sidewalks, not on famous landmarks.  In future travels I'll be looking for others.
The first photo is a doorknob taken by my daughter on a recent visit to Madrid.  Liking doorknobs must run in the family.

This fellow seems a bit unwelcoming.

This nice, golden brass curve appears on
the door of a business.
