Hint of Hope

SDP
Usually, when I see a battered old door like this, I just imagine what the photo would look like. Well, last night, I couldn't resist taking a picture. I actually was photographing a nearby horse paddock and cow pasture in rural Sarasota County, when I noticed this door across the road. The green plant flowering next to the blown out windows and peeling paint sold me. **click**

These photos always make me curious about the past history of the structure.

I say a fine "click" too.

Yep, I love doors. I even have a series called "back doors" because sometimes the back door is more interesting than the front one! This one is full of character.
