How interesting the theme of hands in Greece. Did you find this to be the case or was this the theme for this post only? Nice photos.
I noticed mostly hands on the old doors in the places we explored. Once in awhile there would be something different like the lion headed knocker. I purchased a small antique hand knocker that I keep as a nice memory of Greece. 😊
Seems like the perfect momento.
Great finds, Donna! Greece was a nice place to visit but it was during the summer when we visited and it was very hot. Were these photos from Athens or places on other islands?
Thanks, Gordon. Summer is brutal in Greece. We usually go in September when the weather is cooler and there are fewer tourists. My husband is from Greece, so it’s a better time for meeting with friends and family who escape from Athens in the hot summer months. The pics were from a variety of places, Athens, towns/villages in Peloponnese, and the city of Ioannina in Northern Greece. The Hand of Fatima door knocker is fairly common in Greece. Thanks for stopping by!!
What a great collection, Donna! I wish that people had door knockers in my area, because on the other end of the house I don’t hear hands/fists knocking!
Great photos Donna!
