There is a thing I keep seeing on Twitter where people post pictures of doors. It’s a running series by Norman Frampton on his blog at Norm 2.0
This may have started off a little bit tongue-in-cheek but I can see the appeal of doors photographically. They will generally be set in a building of some sort that will provide framing around it and also offer a near infinite and unique mixture of textures and colours. Except when it’s black and white of course, that’s just textures.
So I thought I’d keep an eye out for a good door and I quickly saw the other benefit of doors photographically, which is that there are quite a lot of them.
I stopped off at the abandoned buildings at Davidstow Airfield yesterday for taking some photos for another project, deliberately because it was a showery grey day which suited the atmosphere I was after. I’ll probably post those later but I came across this door on one of the buildings and thought it would make a good start for taking part in Norm’s panapoly of portals.
The author of the sentence ‘Your Mum I’ was not available to explain what it meant so we will have to leave it to speculation. Perhaps they had to leave before they finished.
