TGIF - Doors


Doors and windows are always so symbolic. They represent arrivals and departures, denote a sense of mystery when they are closed and an invitation when they are open. I used the door in this round robin page to emphasize the importance of photography in recording events of the past. Photographs gives us memories and they also record moments in time that are significant and provide a basis for learning and making decisions about the future. This is my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.
