When is a door not a door?

In the context of what I have in mind today, not a jar, but a gate. Just to check I looked up the definitions of a door and a gate using Chambers' Dictionary and a door allows access to a building and a gate allows access to a space beyond, perhaps a courtyard, perhaps a garden, and so on. Of course there are a multitude of other ways to describe doors and gates and just thinking for a second then the gate at an airport is just one of them. Having defined the difference, and being a collector of images of interesting and even mundane doors, I wondered what I could find in the way of gates. The reason why is of course the making of projects, and projects give direction and purpose to our photography.

So on to some images, and these are the gates I found.

Sometimes a Fantasy, a gate with enhanced colour.
