Hi Marilyn, sometimes these windows tell more than a story in a book. And the walls often are still standing but the windows are broken first. And in the end there is only a big hole in the wall. The snow is a perfect addition to the windows. Makes it more...lonely.

Hi Marilyn, great shot, very atmospheric, and the colors are great! Is it really a window? Looks like a door to me. Greetings, Xenia

I should have given it a "doors" tag in the first place! But there certainly are a lot of windows. I was fascinated when I saw it in all its faded glory, for this was once an elegant entrance, with windows both beside and above the door. Greetings, Marilyn

It looks like a painting! :D The aged silvered boards against that warm brick is magnificent!

Cheers, Pam

Thanks, Pam. There was mist in the air and a bit of snow, and at the time I was sorry I couldn't get a crisper picture. But when I got it onto my computer, I decided maybe it was better this way. Cheers, Marilyn

I agree Marilyn! :)

I'm so glad, Paul, that you caught what motivated me to make the shot! Greetings from snowy Ontario (the real one, not the one in California)! Marilyn

Such Character. You never see such a display anymore. This is fabulous. None of my doors even come close.

Marilyn Whiteley on February 5, 2008

As you see, MaryAlice, I definitely wouldn't want break down this door and ruin its character, even though it might not be too hard to get in that way!

MaryAlice on February 5, 2008

I feel certain that there is another way in! It looks like someone attempted to install a doggie door in one side of the lower part of this door already. What a shame. I'm sure there is a window or two broken out somewhere that you could probably slip through. You really need to check it out. Again, I sure do wish that I could join you on this quest!

That MaryAlice is chomping at the bit!! It can't be too far from Georgia!! Go for it MA ;>)


MaryAlice on June 27, 2009

You crack me up, Jim!

I will pack my steel head axe and meet you there, how about that?

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on June 27, 2009

I wish that it could be so MaryAlice, we would have a whale of a time to be sure!!

Marilyn Whiteley on June 27, 2009

I'll be delighted to guide both of you here, and I'll stand guard while you trespass!

MaryAlice on June 27, 2009

What a generous offer, Marilyn! I'm ready when you are! It's just a matter of getting Jim away from the ocean. =)

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on June 27, 2009

You two are most encourageable, and to think that I have avoided arrest for all these long years and now you invite me to spend some time in jail!!

One of these days Marilyn, we shall be viewing photos from within the Georgia State Pen--the ladies wing, from MaryAlice, pleading her innocence!!


MaryAlice on June 27, 2009

Watch it, Jim! That's really not funny at all! ;)

Jail time was never an option. We were merely inviting you for some entertaining exploration and great photo opportunities. Who said anything about JAIL time anyway?


Marilyn, It's fun to revisit this wonderful shot, and thank you for putting up with our silly talk on your page. I am fetching some breakfast now, so I'll catch up with you all later.

Enjoy your Saturday, both of you! =)

Warmest regards from Georgia where the heat index is suppose to hit 120 today,

Mary Alice

The words POT KETTLE and BLACK seem to be ringing in my head here Marilyn.

Me!! chasing around the ladies indeed!! Chance would be a fine thing ;>))

Anyway, I have never been the same since MaryAlice invited me to Spam her anytime!!
