Door to Nowhere

I was just saying to my friend, Debbie that I don’t think anyone could ever accuse me of having a photographic **style**!  She kindly suggested my style is eclectic, which might be a nice way of saying it’s all over the place. . .

Anyway, when I like a photo, I, more often than not, edit it several different ways- as evidenced by this shot of a door in the Masonic building in Flagstaff. I hope it is nailed shut, because it is several stories up and there is no balcony!


The Porch

I’ve always loved front porches. We had a good sized one in the house I grew up in, but we never sat on it.  I finally have a front porch in our current house (just a slab, but it does the trick), where we sit and watch lightning storms and … sometimes … snowflakes!

This front porch caught my eye when we were picnicking at a Sonoma County winery with our friends, Georgia and Jerry in August.  I loved the blue bench as background for the yellow flowers- and then there was just something about the watering can by the screen door!  I played with these images a bit using Topaz Simplify and some textures.

Barrio Doors

Aaaah- those colorful Tucson barrio doors!  It was images like these that made me want to explore this area with my camera!
