Fascination Doorways in Siouxland, Beresford and Little Sioux

I like doorways. No matter where one goes in Siouxland, or any place else, one will encounter a doorway. And while there are grand ones to be found and admired, it’s the quirky and offbeat ones that attract my attention. And sometimes you can find them juxtaposed to other objects within a space and “redefine” your visual look of them. Most times though they are just straight forward as doorways but quirky.

Not all doors lead to other spaces though, unless they are dimensional or one has an active imagination. Maybe too many episodes of the Twilight Zone as a child.

But doorways are fascinating. Leading a person to another space and a place to explore beyond that doorway if it’s possible to get within. And there an imagination can be worthwhile as one conjures up what possibilities can be found just on the other side.

      Washe,

      I think doorways and doors are expressive, and lately I have just come across a few that intrigue me. No rhyme or reason. New or falling down, and sometimes the elements within the frame are juxtaposed and create a different look as with the partial window and door somewhat mirroring themselves in an abstract way. Or the one with the different colors tossed together. One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor, or so I have heard. Have a great weekend.

      Washe,

      No worries. I didn’t take your comment in a negative manner. From other friends I know sometimes people are perplexed by what I photograph. That’s why I used the comment about floors and ceilings, which is the same as one person’s treasure and another’s trash. Depends on what one sees at the moment. Sorry about your loss. Even with time, that feeling never quite leaves us. I still talk to my parents even though both have passed. I just miss hearing their replies. Some good and some questionable. SMILE. take care,

      jerry
