Doors- Never throw out an Old Door.


I was heading back to the hotel after walking the streets of Boston. This door I found in the business area. Everything around me was concrete, glass, and slabs of cold marble. On both sides of this door was a hedge, behind the door, was a little garden patio. An entry way to glasses filled with wine, and a little space set aside from the roar of traffic. Are we in  a rush to throw things out too soon? It was just back in the 1950’s that in England furniture was still rationed. The second-hand trade was booming. I loved this little door, saved from the rubbish heap, even if it looks terribly out-of-place and yet at the same time such a welcoming sight!


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.
