NOT USED.......

GATE OBVIOUSLY NOT USED
Old gates and doors have always fascinated me as photographic subjects. This gate has not been used for a number of years judging by the plants growing around it. I saw this particular gate last May when touring in Normandy- Northern France. France is a good place to go if you are looking for gates and doors with character.....

A lot of this old gates you can find in Italy, too. I like them, because of the "stories" the tell us in our phantasie. I wish you happy easter and a lot of fun. Hugs from Luzia.

What a kind invitation. Hopefully only friends did come in.

Thank you for opening me eyes on a subject not thought of yet. Please have a good Wednesday.

I wonder what it is in our brain that attracts us to these subjects?

im a fan of gates and doors myself, it's always interesting trying to work out the history surround it.
the goodbyes, the welcome homes etc.

In my opinion, your photo is a metaphor for individual sense of nostalgia. Especially with this beautiful sepia tone.
