Doors- Battersea London

What struck me about these two doors is how identical the two properties were and the strong desire for individuality. In this case personal taste was expressed by the colour choice of the doors, and the state and type of fence–one iron fence in good repair, and one wood fence that had seen better days. The black door reminded me of elegance past and the yellow door of future promise. Two identical doors and two different outlooks on the world.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

  1. Lovely observation Susan. Love the yellow!

    Even in more modern communities, I think homeowners attempt to achieve some individuality by the color of their doors. Some suburbs have remarkably similar homes, differentiated only by their doors. Kind of like private school kids who have to wear uniforms. They all look the same, so they must stand out from the crowd by accessorizing. 🙂

  3. Yellow is happy! 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
