  1. Yepp. I can also see the opportunities and the possibilities of a good life behind a worn façade. Not only forlorn luxury, but the beauty as it is.

  2. it does look battered. I wonder what past it has. Happy RT!

  3. A good haiku, and excellent picture to go with it.

  4. Great shot. I’m sure there are lots of stories behind it.

    My entries:
    Moms…Check Nyo

  5. Opportunity knocks on every door ^+^

    The wedding

  6. The unknown often makes us freeze in our tracks. What we don’t know stops us and we do not consider is that when we recognize opportunity, small and scary steps need to be taken. What lies on the other side of the door? We need to open the portal and peer inside – opportunity abounds if we shed our fears and merely take a look…

  7. Looks like a fixer upper for sure. Great capture for Ruby Tuesday, Mary!

  8. Great SOOC shot! Love it!

  9. great shot, really makes one wonder what’s behind the door

  10. Behind every door there is chance.

  11. Looks like the mansion needs a little sprucing up.
    It could be a beautiful doorway. 🙂
    Nice composition!

  12. Another gem!!! Love the photo and haiku–you need to compile your great photos and haiku into a book. Mickie 🙂

  13. Fitting photo for a great haiku.

    Winston on a blanket of Flowers is my Tuesday Link. Hope to see you visiting today.

  14. I wonder what´s behind the door. 🙂

  15. Hmm, not sure I would have chosen the battered door. Maybe I should reconsider?

  16. Such a great shot of that very stately door and the path leading to it!
    Happy REDnesday,

  17. You never know what goes on behind closed doors.

  18. So true and so lovely. It’s easy to only see a door as closed. I love that you saw beyond that and chose to use your lovely verse and digital camera to help us do so as well! Happy Rednesday. 🙂

  19. Open! Open! Open!

    Ahhh well – maybe another day…….

  20. Yes, thank you for sharing, the woman in my bowl is speaking love… I did not see it before.

  21. Gorgeous shot! I’m searching for interesting doors and windows for my July Camera Club assignment, but we don’t have any this interesting around here.

  22. I can feel the excitement and possibilities :O)

  23. Intriguing photo ~ dare I step inside?

    Did you go on vacation to Hawaii? sounds delightful!

    Love the Haiku, MMT.

  24. Yes, it certainly does. Nice one!

    My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  25. Oh … I do like this immensely.

  26. Those pillars are in bad shape, too.

    Opportunity is the flip side of risk.


  27. I love this photo…:)

  28. This shot has to be one of my favorites. There is something so special about it…the peeling paint and the muted colors, maybe. It is a lovely capture. Genie

  29. It’s a fabulous door. It tells a thousand stories.

  30. I love this photo! I always enjoy door shots because carry a sense of mystery. You always want to know what is on the other side

  31. Great take on the prompt …

    What stories and opportunities this door could share!!

  32. Looks like an interesting door to open.
