Several years ago, there was a popular series of posters titled "The Doors of Ireland," "The Doors of London" etc. At the time, I had been taking photos of doors and windows for years. To me, doors represent an opening, a portal, a gate to something new. Of course a door may be closed, but one can open a door to a house, a car, an idea, a perception, an opportunity, an experience, or to the outdoors. One can lock or unlock a door, turn a door knob, win a door prize, ring a doorbell, use a door knocker, wipe one's feet on a door mat, be stuck in a doorjamb. The possibilities are endless.
I wanted to create my own "The Doors of..." poster, but I didn't want it to be mere photographs of doors like the ones I had seen, so instead I used photos of two doors in Rio de Janeiro, turned them sideways, repeated the images, and created a semi-abstract design from them. I wanted the doors to be recognizable, but not obvious at first glance.
So here is my entry to this week's Ruby Tuesday photo prompt. Enjoy.
"AS PORTAS DO RIO"
A poster featuring this image can be found HERE.
I post on two different blogs.

my other blog, Pro Artz.
