Doors (Thursday’s Photo Prompt)

…if you look on every exit being an entrance somewhere else.
(Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard)

Doors, entrances, exits, gates… the means of transfer between different worlds.

Of course this transfer in daily life is often as mundane as going out through the front door or passing through the tube station barriers; but even this mundane kind of transfer  can be a matter of great interest in the right circumstances: to the toddler for example who has just managed to get into the kitchen where he is now gleefully emptying the cutlery drawer. Or to the mother who has just found him playing with the steak knives.

Given that you all pass through doors all the time, I think no one on this forum should have any difficulty to respond to this week’s prompt: Doors and/or Entrances. Whether you’ll go out and take a picture of No. 10 Downing Street (is this the most photographed door of all time?), write your own version of the tale of Bluebeard’s Castle or delight us with a haiku (a slightly unsavoury one by Issa comes to mind immediately – I have to wonder why somebody shared this particular one on Twitter!), share the link to your post in the comments below.

And while you’re planning your response to the prompt, have a look at my favourite exit:

The only way you’re going to leave this house is by taking a boat… the porch of Ca’ d’Oro, the House of Gold, in Venice.

For further photographic inspiration on the theme of doors, why not have a look at some more Venetian doors here?

Over to you! 🙂
