Good thinking to open that door just the right amount to take through once we have stopped to look at the door.

Leaves and flowers come to my mind when I saw this Bill, the door hinge been the leaves while the window been the flowers, I wonder if that is how you saw it. Or maybe it's time for my madication . Good mono well spotted.

Good one Bill,and it has made me think that I have been neglecting my doors recently.
I must put that to rights soon and start getting some pics.
And it beggars belief the money they want nowadays for these rubbish PVC doors I think !!

I like the alien hand analogy, very secretive and sinister. Wonderful composition, Bill.

Magical monochrome Bill, like some bestial hand clawing it's way back into the crypt.

Worth a Wee Tree methinks.

I've just learnt a new word - chantry. Excellent. It's also a good word for Scrabble. 7 letters, c, h, y...mmm.

Great shot you've got here, Bill, with that composition and the varying degrees of light and shadow.
