Weekly Photo Challenge: Doors

Doors that tell a story interest us — even though the story may be implied, not told. Consider three very different doorways and the lives of the people who passed through them.

Doorway of a humble dwelling at Acoma Pueblo, the oldest continuously inhabited dwelling in the U. S. where today approximately 100 people live year-round in this village that has no electricity or running water.

An elegant arched doorway from the opulent living room to the spacious hallway of the 36,000-square-foot home of John and Mable Ringling in Sarasota, Florida — Ca’ d’Zan.

And last, (perhaps least in terms of monetary value but not in historical significance), the prison door on Robben Island through which Nelson Mandela peered for 18 years.

Doors speak volumes, don’t they?

    1. Oh, the Places We See

      Seeing that door that Nelson Mandela looked out day after day was quite an experience. I don’t know what I expected, but it wasn’t this small cell on this isolated island. Thanks for the comment.

It makes our day to hear from you.
