    What's so special about this, Ken, is the trust in the viewer. By showing less, we are forced to imagine more. The door being ajar, give the idea of movement and happenings within.

    Great detail. If it had an arch over it, Dante might have used it!

    Thanks - It's always rewarding to hear the impressions of others. I just saw the scene and liked the look. These things are largely subconscious I guess - but I see it when you point it out.

    Thanks Mike. It's good on occasion to come across a place that hasn't been altered. Seems to have been quit shortly after the being wired for electric lighting. Gave me a good idea of what our place must have been like before all the various `improvements' to keep it habitable

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    Weathered door in Pascagoula, MS. House is being renovated and I couldn't let this become a "one that got away" shots. One of the door and one of the door knob.

    Rt 8 heading toward the Blue Ridge Parkway, southwest Virginia. First pics with my new-to-me Kodak #33A 5X7, Fuji 180mm.

    Can you see the doorway?

    Love this, Randy. Was in SW Virginia a few years ago for a wedding and was enthralled by all the old abandoned buildings. This was before I started LF. I took a lot of digital images that I liked at the time--not so much now. Very nice.

    Thanks Bill. I have driven by a hundred times, watching the tree getting taller, and saying to myself - "One day I'll pull over and take a picture".

    Hard to see here, but even Merritt's lock is custom, with a big 'M' on it! If you're looking for elaborate tombs in the Bay Area, Oakland's Mountain View cemetery is tough to beat.
