Through this door ....

during a recent outing in Johannesburg, I came across this old building with the
most glorious doorway ....  perfect arch with fine detail - the best part (for me)
was the weathered and worn look....

I love photos of doorways, and this is a very nice one.

Annie said...

Oh the mystery, the mystery. What is behind that door?

Amanda said...

very cool. The age and weathering of the door and window make for a great sepia.

These two photos are just exquisite...I, too, love the old weathered look and subtle colors. You captured the side of this building so beautifully. Beautiful composition...

Hello Gena:-)
It's amazing how old buildings can be so beautiful. You have so many great pictures of flowers down here.
I hope you are ok. And wish you a blessed day. Hugs from Tania:-)

@ewok : Hello!
I stumbled upon it ..... it's an old prison complex which is now touristy .... quite a few old doors windows but these were by far THE best ... right at the end (to my delight!!!)
PS>I am always on the hunt for good scenes, hence have a camera with me at least 80% of the time ....
