The Way Inside

Ornate Door into a Walled Garden             Shanghai, China

I have always been fascinated by doors. The are the way into hidden spaces and secret places, and seem to have a personality all their own. Whether they lead into a house, a palace, a garden, or an art gallery, I find the unique materials, designs and colours to be incredibly intriguing. I often take photos of doors wherever I travel, and they often evoke memories of place and culture more than a photo of a tourist site ever would.
