Maastricht Door

Susan Nolen's photograph of a dutch doorI loved Maastricht Holland and I can’t wait to go back again! I fell in love with the door and its muted blue greys. I was also taken with the beautiful script and found upon closer inspection that it was names of the occupants. At first I thought it was just the one off, but in Maastricht this beautiful script announces to the world just who live here. I always erase the house number when I photograph doors. I just feel it’s a privacy thing.  I thought about doing the same with the name, but then I said to myself, it’s on the street for all to see. I was being silly. So I erased the number and left the name on this lovely Dutch Door.

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.
