Theme Day: Doorways

Narnia might have been more colorful if the children went through this cupboard, don't you think?

This is not exactly a doorway, but I found this the day after we joined DP. Made in India, it is a corner unit in the storage room of the delectable furniture/design store Obelisk on Achilles Avenue. Obelisk faces the carpark where I shot the red scooter and GR8ABZ.

If you go to Nuno's Porto, you will find the first door to a whole series of Theme Day doorways.

  1. I like your sense of humor, and the doorway, and it comes with a price tag too ... Like it, take it home.

    All the best

  2. A doorway with a price tag and what looks like a garage door in the back ground. Good choice.

  3. Lachezar, thanks, I would have, but the price tag was wrong - it had 2 too many 0's!! By the way, I went to shoot Starbucks today, but the front doors were closed (on the first warm day of the season!!!) so I'll go back again tomorrow.

    Denton, it's a small town, our choices are limited! I sometimes wonder about us being in the CITY photo blog family. Brace yourself for more sheep and such.

  4. Oh, thanks, Denton. I didn't notice the garage door in the back. Love the colors, and the reflection in the mirror. (Meg, I think you're right--this word verif. is an absolute monster).

  5. But people, this IS the back room of the shop; this baby was waiting to be picked up by its new owner - it's probably going out of THAT garage door... Yiiiikkkkeess....

  6. That's what I call to be original, doorway in, doorway out. Sometimes we don't wanna leave, we wanna enter.

  8. Thank you, Irrendento and Susan. I think small children would love to hide inside this one.

  14. I don't know how I missed this on theme day (I tried to hit all the sites). It's just wonderful. Your photos are so consistantly fab. Kudos to you for such fine shots. Now I want to know what camera you're using and if you've been doing this since forever???!!!!

  15. I wasn't in the loop, Kim, because this was not a real door, and because I was a chicken. Ben uses a Canon G3, and he's been taking photos since he was about 20; I got a Panasonic Limix DMC-FX01 in August; like most things in life, I've been erratic with photography, and I have very bad eyesight, but DP doesn't let you be erratic, does it?

    We don't think we'll be participating in the October Theme Day, though, Kim; taxis in Nelson are so blah-looking and there aren't even that many of them around. They are perfectly nice guys and ladies driving them, but photogenic vehicles? I'm not sure.
