Photo Challenge – Door

This week’s Photo Challenge is DOOR. Beautiful doors abound, and I’ve selected two for you.

There are many, many old churches near my home. This one was built in either 1901 or 1915 (descriptions vary depending on the source). While most old churches have impressive entrances and beautiful doors, what I like about this one is the juxtaposition of old and new. Can you see it? The recently installed solar panel over the century-old doors.

A trip to NYC and Brooklyn produced this shot of the front entrance of the Brooklyn Public Library. This door takes the prize for sheer spectacle; my phone camera doesn’t do it justice. See the link above for information on the figures on columns, above the door, and the inscriptions. It’s worth the search. Where else will you find Brer Rabbit and Moby Dick together? And in gold?
