This is why I love wandering around places. Sometimes you come across a scene that just says, “Hey, life is good.”
Closed doors can provide all sorts of things… barriers to entry, privacy, protection. The idea of a “closed door” is often negative. But somehow, this door manages to switch it up and convey a welcome and a love of life that reaches out to connect with my heart.
Even though actual people aren’t usually in my photos, yesterday’s images being the exception and not the rule, people are still in my photos. They are there through the things they leave out or behind to show that they exist. That they love. That they want beauty and joy and happiness in their lives.
This is a universal truth, across places and cultures. We all want beauty and joy and happiness in our lives, don’t we?
