“When is a door not a door?” asked the riddle in my Tiny Tots comic hundreds of years ago. Their answer was “When it’s a-jar”, but that never made me laugh.
But this did………
…….especially as it’s in a lane in my home city of Glasgow’s West End, and on the side of a restaurant frequented by the well-heeled, in an area frequented by students, with both groups generally well-oiled. I wonder how many have staggered into it and not understood what went wrong. Ah, those were the days! These days a matinee at the cinema at the end of the lane, followed by a curry, and it’s straight home for me.
I love photographing doors (didn’t realize it was so popular) and have quite a collection of images. When I looked through some for this challenge I saw that they were mostly closed doors and I’ll put in a gallery of these at the end of this post.
But I think from now on I’m going to be looking more at open doors as this one I saw in Leeds last week looked so very inviting:
And yet I didn’t go in!!!!! It might not have delivered and that would have been disappointing. But what if it HAD??????
I do think that it has made these closed doors look a lot less fun (lovely though I think they are):
Oh well that’s doors for you. They make you think.
