Took this at work. We are doing the finish work on a new truckstop. This is the fuel cashier office. The many doors here seemed fascinating. The door unit waiting to be installed, the rough door opening, the cabinet doors and thru the window is a glass exterior door. Canon 300D,Tamron 28-105 at 28mm, f5and 1/60th, ISO 200 and fill flash using the Quantaray Auto flash.

Great stuff, DX6490!

I love the way your composition "opens" the doors to your "exit door"!

You have painted well

Well, you hit it right on with no perspective distortion! Nice. Reminds me of when I was building my house.

Neither exit nor entrance, neither open nor shut... Who would have guessed that the birth of doors could be photographed? Good thinking, Rick!

I guess my work, with the new camera is coming along. I really like my new lenses too. And the Quantaray flash is an outstanding value, much more powerfull than the Canon and doesn't cost as much as the Sigma 500.

If I'd have walked into there I wouldn't have even had a passing thought about those doors.

It's great seeing things through other people's eyes.

My guess is that you aren't a person to sit at a desk, and if you do, you end up itching to get out there and make things, build things. Reminds me of my husband who spent 16 years going out of his mind behind a desk. He now runs his own welding shop, spends days off there just for the fun of it, and alwayscomes home filthy but happy.

I like the woodiness of this. A well executed shot, with a simplicity to it. And meets (exceeds)the challenge in many ways.

I envy your ability to do carpentry / cabinetry. In woodshop, during high school, my brothers and I each made bread boards. Minewas the one that my mother hid in the drawer. Quite crooked, plenty of splinters, and the hole to hang it was well off-center..... And then there wasthe birdhouse I built, without an entrance.....

You sound like me. For my sister's birthday one year, I made her a cork board. Out of wood. No cork. It was really just a piece of plywood in a crooked, rough frame.:?
