Most of the houses in the area of Mesa, Arizona where my parents live are the Spanish style of much of the Southwest, a style I like very much. But the doors are definitely not all one style! On my way to the library each day in search of internet access, I passed a few doors that repeatedly caught my attention. Eventually, I grabbed my camera on the way out the door in a quest to get a few shots of these doors that so captivated me.
However, I share with some of the other Thursday Doors participants that feeling of trespassing when taking photos of people’s homes. I stopped the car, got out, acted as if I were taking photos of the moon (and did take some), then shifted to the doors. It sounds silly and felt rather clandestine, but I came away with some photos. Here’s the first, a door of a different color.
