No, No, They Really ARE Door Knockers
This shot was taken just after a tropical downpour in Singapore a few months ago. I was walking around, trying to cover as much ground with my camera as I possibly could. Three times it rained and three times I had to take shelter. The last storm was furious, but it only lasted about twenty minutes.
As soon as the rain stopped, I emerged cautiously from the arcade where I had taken shelter. At this stage of the day, I was choosing streets at random, merely allowing myself to be led by sights that caught my attention, rather than any innate sense of where I was actually going.
I turned down a side street, simply because it seemed to have several handicrafts stores. Instantly, I found myself enthralled by this display of metalwork. It wasn't just the intricacy of the design; it was also the glistening raindrops that clung tenuously to their curved surfaces.
And in case you hadn't noticed, each knocker is crafted in the shape of the head and trunk of an elephant.
