“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
“God enters by a private door into every individual.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
What an amazing photo. It makes my imagination run rampant!
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
Great photos Robyn and love the verse from Matthew
Thank you Nora. I appreciate your kind words and am so glad like the verse from Matthew! Blessings to you my friend, Robyn
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
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
Really beautiful, Robyn. Thought – provoking, yet so Zen at the same time.
Thank you Esenga! Happy to know you liked it and found it thought provoking! Have a wonderful day my friend! Robyn
Great photos and very wise words. Visiting you is always a pleasure.
Door, thank you for your very kind note. You made my day! Blessings, Robyn
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
Love the Bell quote. Do you have any history on this place?
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.
