Doors- A Dickens of a Door

Dickensdoorshs ” Uncle Pumblechook: a large hard-breathing middle-aged slow man, with a mouth like a fish, dull staring eyes, and sandy hair standing upright on his head, so that he looked as if he had just been all but choked, and had that moment come to.”

Charles Dickens- Great Expectations

If that is indeed what poor old Pumblechook looked like, I wonder how he fit inside this narrow doorway in Rochester, Kent, which claims he lived here. Curious and curiouser…this door looks like a door one would find in Alice in Wonderland, all the lines lead inwards to a door that looks smaller the closer you get to it.

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.

    It might be a door one finds in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, too. 🙂

    • Good One Carrie, this door if and when I can get through it, has some lovely teas on offer…second thought perhaps a blessing in disguise that I am always late, no cream cakes for me! 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
