I think we can get a bit carried away some times, thinking that we have to travel to far flung and exotic places to find things to photograph.
Well, this is the front of my sock drawer - hardly a major tourist attraction!
I like the way that there are layers of history cut into the wood - scrapes and dints that speak of hard times, the circular insert that may have been an old lock, or a central single handle of open the drawer. I also like the dark shadow under the existing handle that could either by the wear of fingers using this current handle or the damage caused by an older larger handle.
Not a bad set of stories for the front of a sock drawer!
