Photos of our Life ~~ Sheila & Ed

Doors & Windows

This morning it is cold, windy and snowing here in Massachusetts.  My computer is located in a room that has 3 sides of windows and doors.  As I was sitting here reading and enjoying all of the pictures on-line I thought — I have the perfect picture for the theme — Doors & Windows — they are all around me.  So hope you’ll enjoy my view as much as I do everyday.

  1. I like this! One thing I really like is that I’ve seen people create a virtual window like this, using a frame with mullions to separate the image into panels. This is extra nice; I’m jealous of your door!

  2. Thanks Val – after looking at the door again — I see that my painter didn’t do a very good job scraping off the paint…. oh well, it still gives me a wonderful view. We love where we live! My header is the view from that door this past fall.

    Isn’t this the best fun — ever!

    It is a nice view–how fortunate you are! And the best part is being inside all warm and cozy to view the cold, wet, windy outdoors.

    I like the contrast of the dark door and silhouette of the mobile against the white of the snow.

    Yeahhhh This is really nice. I lika the grid that the window makes. If you look in my webgallery you will see that I am a real fan of squares.

    • Lena – I’m so glad you like it — I have looked at your web gallery and you have some wonderful images! I do see that you like squares…… Group Dynamic is off to a great start.

  5. That is a great view, so lucky you are. Your snow on your side makes it more fun like its almost live action. Great job.

  6. What a great view, love how the bench is framed in the bottom pane. I would be up to shoveling snow to get that kind of view!!

    • I would gladly give you a shovel. We’ve been here for 16 years but I also grew up on the other end of this lake and have never wanted to live anywhere but here on the water! It is lovely at all times of the year. Thanks for your great comments. By the way the bench is where I have my morning coffee in the summer.

    I love seeing your view through your eyes through your door…very cool perspective, not to mention beautiful! Nicely done Sheila!

    Beautiful door leading onto a splendid cold cold cold looking view, do hope you have double glazing, Good idea to stay inside.

  9. That’s the kind of snow I love! (A photo from far away from me!) All that’s lacking is the cup of hot cocoa, sipped from the warm indoors. The windchimes fit perfectly in that snowy window!

  10. I really like the monotone look – did you do post processing in B&W or is it just a dark silhouette of the door and the grey snowstorm outside? It’s a fun use of the squares the way you lined up the bench and the moose – nice composition!

    • Hi Karen –

      No post processing other than cropping to straighten the image. It was an extremely dark grey day and as cold as it looked.

  11. The funny part of this whole picture was when I first looked at the door I was looking at the wind chime and thought that I could use it for Arc and tried a couple of pictures of it but then when I looked at what I was taking — the whole door was a better shot! Thanks for all the comments everyone I really do appreciate any input you have!

    Happy Monday — when you’re retired all the days are Happy!

    • I’m counting down those days until every day can be Happy! Unfortunately it’s a rather large number I have to count down.

    I like your choice of black and white for this shot – really conveys the cold – and the panes in the door give you a two-for-one! Well done.

    • Thanks Vicki – it was just naturally Black and White – not something I did in the camera or post processing.

  13. LOVE this! What a gorgeous photo…..the beautiful landscape in the background, the hanging ornaments on the door, the b & w….all of it! Fabulous shot~
