Ready to walk on through? This week, share an image of a door.
I’ve always had a thing for photographing doors, but it wasn’t until this month, when I was exploring the town of Chipping Campden in England’s Cotswolds, that I realized I have enough images from over the years to compile a book.
A door is an everyday thing, yet is often a symbol — of a beginning, a journey forward or inward, a mark of one’s home, or even a step into the unknown.
As the participants in the Blogging U. Photo 101 course discussed recently, color can infuse your photographic subject with life — and elevate a photograph. While wandering in the historic town of St. George’s on the island of Bermuda, the bright blue door above caught my eye, and it’s become one of my favorite door images from all of my travels. Somehow, the door makes me happy. I suppose it’s a reminder to always look for and find beauty in the mundane and all things around us.
For this week’s challenge, publish a new post with a photo of a door (or multiple doors!). Consider how color affects the image, but also think about size, shape, texture, and details — how might these elements add up to tell a story?
