A door in Santa Fe

What is it about doors that fascinates us, especially some of us photographers?  After all, a door is a door is a door… isn’t it?  They are made to keep things in or out depending on what side of the door you happen to be on but somewhere along the history of doors humans decided to kick them up a notch and began to decorate and embellish them.  Even though I was aware that this door and the entire building was meant to be a replicant of the past – it still caught my eye.

    Doors hold a mystery to what’s on the other side, and either allow us to discover what’s on the other side or they keep us out. Nice photo.

      Thanks…or in the case of some horror movies make us wish we had never opened that door or have us thankful that it keeps out the zombie hordes 😉

    Very nice image! I like the feeling of texture as well as light and shadow here. Doors can be a metaphor for opportunity and change and also mystery!

    Believe it or not, I enjoy seeing these doors through your eyes – makes me more observant as I drive home.
