The Doors

No, this is not about the fabulous group around Jim M.140104 - Olympus XA2 - 6This is just about Doors, real doors, mostly old ones.  Doorways into forgotten homes, into lives long past.140104 - Olympus XA2 - 24 (1)Mostly decrepit. Gone to seed. In short, interesting!

Those doors fascinate me. What happened behind them? What lives were lived here? What stories unfolded here decades ago?140318 - Olympus Trip 35 - 11This was one of my projects from some time ago and it still surfaces today.

Any old door I see I am tempted to make a photograph of. When I roam the streets I always keep part of my mind aware of those doors… and windows too.140318 - Olympus Trip 35 - 14There are the signs of real lives that happened here. Mysteries to me, but all subject to my imagination. Who lived here? What did they do for a living? Where are they now?140426 - Olympus Trip 35 - 10Doors to their souls – Doors to our souls – Doors to twilight dimensions? Wherever they lead, I am attracted to them. Even dwarfish half-doors like this one…140101 - Canon A-1 - 35Anyways, here are some more:140426 - Olympus Trip 35 - 14140318 - Olympus Trip 35 - 19140318 - Olympus Trip 35 - 17140104 - Olympus XA2 - 15 (1)As always, thanks for being here and taking a look!

  1. Nice series of photos coming along here. In Britain a door has come to symbolise social status. When you go around a council estate you can always tell the houses and flats that have been bought – because the first thing, and sometimes the only thing, they do is change the door, often replacing it with something that is totally incongruous.

  2. Luckily there are lors of ancient houses around here, not yet renovated and re-doored. That seems to be a major consideration here too.
