So Many Doors

As part of the upcoming threshold retreat, I've been looking for 60-70 pictures of doors. Each participant will get one, with a quote on the back. I've really enjoyed looking at all of the doors, and seeing the many different kinds. For a long time, I've enjoyed photographing flowers because I feel like they display such distinct personalities. What shocked me is that doors seem to be very much that same way; each has character, personality, and each truly reflects the people that own it, use it, or walk through it.

It's nice that I have a few photos of doors and gateways, and I came across this one, which I took near sunrise on my last day in Positano, Italy in October 2007.

That is a beautiful picture! I wish I could go to Italy sometime, I was sort of obsessed with Italy for a few years while in college, but never made it there. Lovely Blog too by the way. :)

That's such a beautiful photo - I very fondly recall my three weeks backpacking around Italy. There is just something about the light there - such a wonderful place to be.

I'm enthralled with doors too! They speak volumes of new beginnings and the possibilities ahead.
Blessings!
