Store Door

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 25 August 2012 in Miscellaneous.

I'm thinking I might darken the windows more.
The last door in my door series. This is the entrance to a jewelry store in the small town of Oxford, PA.
Thank you for following me in this door series.
Taking pictures of doors has broadened my photographic vision.

looks interesting with the brick wall ... any other wall would not have done entire justice to it ....

Love doors, all most as much as I love chairs and windows...
I'd love to see the window darker.

Oh, my - why are you finished? You have such a talent for capturing unique door images. Love the assymmetrical arrangement here.

@Brenda: The door series came about as a project some people in the Chester County Camera Club did over the summer. We had a list of types of doors to photograph. I completed the list. But, as you can imagine, I now notice doors everywhere I go. So, I may be photographing more. Thanks so very much for the encouragement.

Fantastic frame and textures ... very charming! I enjoyed your series!

@RBL: Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed these doors. They were fun. I'm sure you know this store.

The big diamond on the sign was my hint that it was a jewelry store. ;-) Very nice series.

Nicely composed, I think the windows are fine as they are showing reflections of the street. An interesting series and topic for your camera club, I enjoy the ones my club sets, it stretches our vision to think about subjects we wouldn't normally include.
As you may have guessed after seeing I've included a couple of these in my remix, I find door's, and locks fascinating. They are often unique and sometimes mysterious, always a great subject.

@Doug: I appreciate your thoughtful comment. You are completely right about club assignments stretching our vision.

Bruce from Tacoma, United States

A very nice presentation of it. I like the window shape offsetting the door.

Nice composition. I like the detail around the door frame. You're thinking that darkening the windows will decrease distractions from being able to see inside?

@Julie L. Brown: Thanks. Yes to your question about darkening the windows. I tried it, but don't like it as much.

The door series has been a treat. I will have to get back into the CCCC for inspiration.

@crazy Steve: Glad you liked it. Do get back into CCCC. Check out the website for details of meeting location and days--there were changes made last year.

Learn a lot about composition going for doors . . unlike flowers, they are static and very slow to change. But the rewards are there as we see here. Neat series.
