Such a profound quote to go with that wonderful photo.

Devika said...

On the quote - must be thanking God that we are far more settled...but that makes one think and pray for those who aren't,

Good set of photos, Ash, since my last visit :)

wishes,

You have made this poorly maintained door with paint peeling off look like abstract art.

Love this picture. For some reason it brings to mind warmer places. Love the texture, the aging of the surface, the peeling paint...
And the quote speaks volumes to me.
Have a lovely weekend,
xoxo

A fine peeling paint shot with such nice reds and even the underlying weathered wood. I like the choice you made to get these pieces of hardware in the shot too. Well done.

Hi Ash! Great quote; so true...

OK; I know that contemporary art doesn’t take unanimous approval... But some pieces are worth seeing. Check it at Blogtrotter Two, enjoy and have a superb weekend!!

'Traditional doors to paradise.' Reminds me of the end of the movie The Gladiator. :D

Emm said...

What a fabulous old set of doors. They look quite windswept and battered! That is a great quote too, very bittersweet.
