DP Theme Day: Doorways

The monthly ritual. It's theme day. Here's a doorway that I found interesting only because of the light of the afternoon sun shining through forcing my camera to shadow all the details of the door.

Now go have a look at these other doorways.

1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10 -11 -12 -13 -14 -15 -16 -17 -18 -19 -20 -21 -22 -23 -24 -25 -26 -27 -28 -29 -30-31 -32 -33 -34 -35 -36 -37 -38 -39 -40 -41 -42 -43

Sorry for not visiting everyone (and missing 2 days!) but I'm so knackered from the show which is positively consuming my waking thoughts and demands constant sleep. My friend Insomnia is on holiday!

This picture, and your working with your play reminded me of a quote...

"We do on stage things that are supposed to happen off. Which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else."

I'm glad you take great pictures on your exit... er.... entrance. :)

i thought you were busy celebrating Independence Day. No independence day shots? see your flip-flops in the photo and a dog dish is it? So many things beyond the doorway. Rest well..

ery chiarascuro. Beautiful, edwin. I find it more interesting than you perhaps, becaus it's a door on a different world to mine (of course)

Lovely double doorway. You are so good at capturing the light here! So many wonderful elements: the reflection of the chair and zories on the flooring, the green leaves, the defined panels of the the door, the light spilling into the room, the fringe on the throw--just wonderful!

I like this photo a lot too and just like Kaa I notised that there must be a dog somewhere ;-) And it's so great idea to shot doorway from inside to out!

Lovely, peaceful scene. From the size of the water bowl, there must be a rather large doggie nearby.

Edwin, often when I come to KLDP I find in photos things I am reading in Roland Barthes' Camara Lucida. Below, more or less my rough translation:

For me, photographs of landscapes (urban or countryside) should be liveable, and not visitable. — Roland Barthes

Now, to me, this photo is very intimate and makes me want to live there. Futhermore, the photo has what Barthes calls "punctum", a detail that is not the focus but it punctures you somehow. To me the "punctum" in this photo is caused by the sandals.

Thanks for this image.

Yes, for those of you who guessed, this is the back door that leads to the garden of my house. I took this picture the day the elctricity went off. I was on the sofa reading. I looked up for a moment and saw this light. Click click and Ta-Da!

Dear Keropokman...these are havaianas! ;)

And the doggy bowls belong to one of my 3 dogs. His name is Henry Higgins. Not too big a dog but enough to knock you over when he charges at you! My baby he is.

Ok Ame...I'll be coming by soon(ish)

Rudy, don't say things like that. I'm so humbled and no bookshop in the region has the book. I'm dying to read it!

10 am photoshoot. It's now 1:50 am and just got back from a party that was thrown for us. Wish I could've stayed a teeny bit longer but the need to look flawless in the morning...ooooohhhhhhh!

Hi Edwin
This is truly beautiful and a photo to gaze at for a long time. It holds some kind of secret...

Be well!
