A Door Closed is Another Door Open…

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell

Look without Regret

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

    • A penny for your thoughts Linda?! 😉 So glad the images stimulated your imagination. After all, what would life be without imagination?! Have a fabulous night my dear! Robyn

  1. All of your posts are beautiful, thoughtful, and touch me, Robin. But this one hits the mark – it is a wonderful uplifting message. Let’s open those doors and walk through with grateful steps and smiling faces.

    • Dearest Jessie I was thinking of you about two hours ago and planned to drop you an email. Thank you so very much for your kind words. Blessings to you dear friend. XO Robyn

  2. Gorgeous photos Robyn!!! It is so true also… we have to be present and aware enough – unfettered enough to notice that open door. The contrast between the color and the b&w tone is excellent to depict this point–
    Lots of Love to you ~ x RL

    • Many thanks to you my dear friend. The awareness of the open doors is certainly the key…..something to keep in mind always. Much love and many hugs to you! Robyn

  3. Never known what attracts us photographers to doors, but there is something that says capture me now! Love the B&W image works very well. On similar lines, in another life I photographed interiors of Stately Homes and Castles for heritage magazines. I always had to remember which editor I was shooting for….one wanted the doors of a room closed he thought it detracted from the room you were shooting. The other wanted doors left open or at least ajar t tempt the viewer with what lay beyond. Both very firm in there believe that doors were very significant to any room setting.

    • Thank you David. So true about how photographers seem to be attracted to doors. It is also an interesting study as to the preference of open vs. closed. Have a great day! Blessings, Robyn

      • It wasn’t too bad on a shoot. I just took two images, one shut one open, they both went in the library so no matter the situation was covered….but the editor’s were quite pedantic in their preferences. I rather suspect in todays working environment they will have more substantive issue to tackle. Take cars

    • Thanks Laura. No, I don’t. It is just a an old house, one of so many, in Bucks County…I drive by it all the time and happened to be out on a walk (with camera in hand) one morning and the light was just beautiful so I shot it. Many of the old homes around here have plaques designating the original owner and the year built but this one doesn’t.
