November 12 of 12

12 pictures all taken on the 12th of the month. It's Chad Darnell's idea and if you'd like to play along you can find out how at his blog (which is pretty interesting right now because he is one of the writers who are on strike, and he's really got a neat insider's view of the whole thing up).

When one door closes another door opens.

My 12 were inspired by that oft used quote, attributed to many, including Helen Keller and Alexander Graham Bell... November has been a month of pretty extreme change for me, professionally & personally & pharmaceutically. So I got to thinking about how many literal and figurative doors had opened and closed for me over the past few weeks and came up with these 12 shots:

About to head out my front door:




Exiting the building via my super secret back staircase exit:




The super sleek doors of a newly refurbished MARTA train. My transportation to work:




Exiting the train station at work via another super secret back exit:




About to head in to the office:




'Nuff said:




Leaving the office:




The proper entrance to the MARTA station at work (as opposed to my super secret exit):




Nearly home now. This is outside the shop across the street from me. I stopped to get something frozen for dinner:




I left via my super secret exit, but I'm coming home via the grand front entry:




Check the mail (nothing by the way, which I should have known since it was a holiday... duh):




Home again, home again, giggity gig:




So those are most of the literal doors I go through on a daily basis... the figurative ones have been much more interesting, but WAY harder to photograph.

I love your door theme. I keep thinking I'll do a theme the next time, but I never plan ahead ...

I keep forgetting about this cool challenge. Perhaps next month I will remember.

Nice theme. I wonder what the collective noun for doors would be...? All I can think of is 'a slam of doors.'

The hair... yeah... I'm growing it out on purpose. I have never had long hair and so I am taking that plunge. What the heck, right?

Thanks for all the nice comments.

I love super-secret exits!

Dogeared said...

Nice idea, having a theme! I like having super secret exits to avoid the general hoardes!
