Knights of the Cross

I took this image some time ago, in 2007 I think, when I was deliberately wandering the streets of Brisbane looking for subjects of the type taken by my colleagues. If it isn't obvious from the history of my posts, I am not a big fan of architectural photography, it is a highly specialised area which my friends are exceedingly good at but causes me no end of frustration. However with the recent "burst" of door posts, I thought I would submit this image. I quite like the Moorish curves and points over the doors. I could almost imagine a Crusader in battle armour, white tunic with red cross, standing with drawn sword on the steps.

It's great to see one of your richly toned images back on the blog Martin! This is a great shot and I love the mental image that you have conjured up. In fact, I can see a further interpretation of the crusader theme as the doors and the centre post look like a close-up of a Norman helmet...
With a classy shot like this it is very hard to imagine you being frustrated by this topic!
