The Garage Doors
I am starting to paint the garage doors. They have long needed painting and I just haven't gotten around to it before this. But here is the thing - there is a wonderful quality about the old cracked paint, the rust stains from the latch and the wear on the door from hands opening the latch day after day after day. There is a lovely patina to all this. I have photographed this before, but I thought I would do this one last time before fresh paint brightens everything, and makes one of my favorite subjects disappear. I think that this photograph, by the way, is a lot about the wonderful shadows formed by the parts of the latch.
