Take a Word--Doors
I love photographing doors. I like to think about what might be behind them--the joys they savor, the sorrows they contain, the secrets they keep--the lives they guard.
I took this photo at the end of last winter, of a door in a high brick wall surrounding what might have been a fine house with a beautiful garden (though NOt so much at the end of last wiinter , which was a messy one.)
OR it could have been a derelict garden and an abandoned, falling down house. I couldnt see beyond the seven foot wall...
The photo was embellished and altered with filters and blending; gradients and a texture piece were added; and the wisteria is a free image from Dover, just to add a little beauty to the mysterious door.

What a delightful tall door! I like to fantasize about what lies behind too, but I think I'd have to do some research on this one. It's really intriguing. If you ever find out what's behind it, let me know! Great art piece!ReplyDelete
