Thanks Minnie. Wasn't sure how to handle the situation and finally fell back on geometry, although I didn't have that in my mind. I was drifting more towards the nature and function of doors: keeping in, keeping out; hiding, revealing; inviting, discouraging. One door is closed, one door is open to the outside, one door is missing, one was not intended. Too much ? Matt

I’m good with that philosophical metaphor. That’s part of the power of Seeing, the depth of the story that can be found inside an image.

#52-13: Front door to Dillingham House

Dillingham House, built in the 1660s, is the second oldest on the cape. I don't know about the color or whether this is the original door but I do know the old tree on the edge of the property by the highway has the most scrumptious pears. The owners are rarely here, coming down only occasionally on weekends during the summer. Every few years, the tree drops bushels of pears that rot on the ground. I doubt the owners miss one or two now and then. The bride makes awesome ginger-pear muffins and I have been known to drop in a dollop of butter while they are still steaming.

Love this web-abstract. I’ve been sort of addicted to taking pictures of webs lately. You’ve done a good job here in using the through-the-window approach to increase the abstraction effect.

Great door, and great story (wish I had some of those muffins for breakfast). I especially like that stone door-stoop. Excellent geometry.

Thanks Minnie. The house is an example of the early saltbox style. I will take a shot from the side if the light is right and I can get permission.

Maureen made an apple cake last night for this morning's breakfast and threw in a few of the pears. Should be a novel treat,
