Doorway to the Weekend - Unfinished?

Old Double Doors, Savannah, Georgia  © Doug Hickok


Like Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, these old doors have much to admire, and even though they are incomplete, they stand alone as a composition. Perhaps a little neglected behind the rhythm of the balustrade, they have survived the test of time, and conduct themselves like a true classic.  D.C. al fine.

Hope you have a classic weekend as well.

and a kookaburra feather in my pork pie hat.)
Fine.

  1. Great character and color Doug. We don't have too many cool doors around the suburbs of SoCal...thousands of houses that look alike, yes...cool doors, no.

  2. That's pretty neat! It actually looks quite artistic as is.

  3. I like that door in these colors, blue and yellow are complementary :)
    I think this is a part of a nice building.
    Have a good weekend!

  8. Love the worn, shabby but chic seediness. I'm not sure where the elf ears and kookaburra feather fit in but they must have inspired this masterpiece.

  10. Lovely color and detail. Excellent framing - perfectly in square with not an irrelevant element included nor an important element cut off.

  12. Lovely classic feel to the doors and yes, the peeling paint and unfinished look just adds to the shot!

  14. beautiful objects, intricately designed and crafted! but apparently somebody ran out of paint at one point and left it like that! still looking very attractive!

  15. Funny... I actually prefer the original colour.
    Gold looks best on these days.
    Don't you think?
    Elf ears and a kookaburra feather...
    New summer/ autumn collection for leprechauns? ;)

    A simple but nice and harmonious composition.
    Both the pattern created by the door and its colour combination makes it worth while to be photographed.

    Cheers,
    Donato
