I’ve always been drawn to ancient doorways. Of course they’re only mysterious until you’ve seen or been through them. But there are many where I’ll never know what’s behind them.
Some of the photos here are fresh. I took myself into town to the shops, a small achievement in my recovery scheme. The light was great and I always take the camera with me. It’s an old town, with many ancient doorways. You never know what’s behind them, it could be a smartly furnished apartment, or a room that hasnt been used since the 19th century.
Some of them are not as ancient as they seem. I dont know when the rusty garage closed, but they’re no longer open from 3 to 7pm, Tuesdays to Fridays. The green door, with it’s seemingly medieval porch, is part of a relatively modern building in Gloucester, UK. I think it’s from th Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th, early 20th century.
