Savannah Door

Susan Nolen's doorsThis door with the bricked up entry way stopped me dead in my tracks. Why brick up the entrance this way? I could only deduce since Savannah, Georgia was prone to wet storms that this was a way to keep the water out.  It’s not an old door, or if it is, the paint really hides the age perfectly, but I also couldn’t help notice the off angles of this door and the door handle smack in the middle. Great little door in Savannah Georgia.

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.

    wow – I agree the bricks likely had to do with water – and that moss there hints too – but the bricks look so old – older than the building – and things are such a mismatch that it really causes tension – the new pavers leading up the doors – the old stone of the actual building – and then as you note – that newer door – in blue! and the handle (I noticed some other doors -usually older – have that handle in the center and wonder the evolution of that to the side – maybe older, heavy doors needed them centered)
    anyhow, the shot of this door has more intrigue with the down view – where you seem up high and so it messes with the scale (for me at least – ha!)
    okay, closing thoughts (just love doors!) well not sure if you edited this photo – but the color gets a two thumbs up – the rich warm hues wight he leaves/bricks and glowing yellow of the building – well makes the green feel richer….

    • The colours grabbed me right away. When I edit a door I always try to remove numbers and clear street signs. 😊 I just loved the differences the colours played up. Thanks for the great comment!

    I still haven’t figured out why this high threshold on this door.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
