... where it's not about the camera.
There is a tradition in the south that many may not have heard. When someone buys a home, they paint the front door red. When they pay off the mortgage, they have a party - burn the mortgage papers and paint the front door black. Out of the red and into the black.
I'd never heard that before, so I Googled it and I found quite a few references saying that a red door means the mortgage is paid off!
Nice pictures -- you should make a poster or a calendar or something like that. "The Doors of Charleston by Rick Lee"! Kinda has a nice ring to it.
What a treat to see these when the page loaded! My favorites!
Huh. I must have it backwards...out of the red?
These are seriously some of my favorites!!!
Hey! You were on my turf! Fun to see the streets I walk each day through your camera.Joan
Joan.. the city takes my breath away. I felt like I just couldn't shoot fast enough.
I'm thinking you will need to come back soon. :)
We're thinking perhaps again next Winter. The off-season hotel prices are fantastic.
I love these kinds of architectural shots. There is something about pictures of old buildings that transports one through time. I took some door pics in Vienna a couple of years ago and more recently some in Madison, Indiana. Just something compelling about old doors.
