Blue Door

Blue Door, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

On a spur of the moment we went to go and get Bánh mì (vietnamese submarine sandwiches - only more so).
My husband stood in line to order and I wandered around, camera in hand taking pictures - this one was taken through the shop window and across the street.
The street was gray, the light was too but this door sure wasn't.
I like doors anyway - eyes may be the windows to the soul but sometimes, doors are the lipstick of the building and I couldn't stop taking pictures of it.

I punched up the colours and light a touch in flickr editor, but even before I did, my oldest daughter said "Wow, that blue just pops!" and she is right.

Now, I want to paint our front door the same colour and I have always wanted the pheasants in flight grill - ever since I was a little kid.

In web wanderings, have you seen this or this?

That blue does make this a great shot. I love to walk around a city and look at doorways and windows.

I love pictures of doors and you've captured a beauty here.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
