Golden Door Closer Screw

Just a photo of the adjustment screw on a hydraulic door closer from work. This is the unedited version. The edited black and white version is here.

 

As I've noted before, I like to try to find new perspectives on things I see every day and take for granted. This door closer is inside the stairwell at my old place of work (CTI). I saw it every day. In fact, many times a day, and never paid it any mind.

 

The stairwell itself is pretty bland and featureless. It almost inspires boredom in it's monotonous monochromicity. But one day, camera in hand, my photog radar on, I realized this gizmo on the door had a nice X on it that just might lend itself to being seen in a new light. And thus, we have this photo.
