Doors- A bendy Door

alleydoorshs

This door in the alley that leads up to the Cathedral in Rochester Kent is really curved with time. I would dread trying to draft proof it, or replace it with a modern door. Above it, the door frame bears the weight of the ancient house, and it tiredly leans in a dangerous fashion.

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.

    That one’s a bit sinister looking, isn’t it? As if anything could be lurking behind it…

    It is rather aged, isn’t it? The curve isn’t really noticeable until you really look!

    • Tom, this door is the door from the crooked house in the blog post, Great Expectations. That house leaned over so that no sky was visible! The door? Well I am surprised it hadn’t burst from the pressure! 🙂 Love Rochester!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
