I"ve photographed it several times, still looking for better. All ideas, critique, edits welcome.
It amazes architecture this old is still standing let alone as beautiful as it is. I'd love to know more about this place and it's history!
The first is a classic shot, one that could be used as a powerpoint or advertisement. It stands alone quite nice and has so many stories to tell. The torn pages intrigue me too, leaving me to wonder if they belong to the bible next to it, and why are they torn-out sitting there. The open door has a message all its own and can be viewed from a variety of ways. There's the open door, an invitation if you will, the path our eye follows, or for the spiritual The Gates. Are the torn pages our ticket, a test, or the key to much more? There's even a figure waiting in the open door!
It's been awhile since I've seen an image with so much sub-text and will be interested to hear what everyone sees in it! S-
