Day 188: Corner View

OK.  Today's Corner View is front door.

Hoo-Boy.  Our front door is uuuuugly.  It's ancient, and until we get the house sided, we're not going to get a new front door.

Don't believe me?  Here's an...uh...detail.


But I couldn't possibly use THAT as the real corner view photo.  I mean, honestly.  I almost resorted to taking a photo of Julia's doll house's front door!  But I refrained admirably.

So here's what I messed around with.  Reflection in the glass.  In b&w so you couldn't see the hack job on the window ledge.  Eep!

OK.  Here it is:

OK.  Win some, lose some with a photo a day.  Better luck at next week's Corner View!

Now off to knock on Jane's front door to take a gander at some nice looking front doors.  I'll take notes.  And drool.

The reflection photo is cool - well done! The first image is straight out of bomb shelter 50s architecture - yikes! But I still think a photo of Julia's doll house door would have been cool. :D

Your pictures tell the truth. Truth is a real beauty.

Honestly? I enjoyed both pictures. The reflection was really cool and the view of your front door? You must have taken his "best" side!

What a wonderful proof of the old saying, "don't judge a book by its cover".

Please have you all a wonderful start into the weekend.
