It was by accident that I stumbled upon ” The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge “.
I never knew it existed !! Anyway I decided to give it a shot.
Early mornings and late evenings provide ideal lighting in these parts. Shooting in the mid day is a bad idea. It’s very hot, very humid and the sun is right above you blotting out every detail in the sky.
I decided to venture out at sunrise. There’s not much time even then. The rise is fast, usually within half an hour and the warmth turns into heat quickly. I don’t have a thermostat, so I Googled the temperature. 34 degrees celsius at 5.46 am!
I live in a relatively old area in Jeddah. There is decay all around. Everything is in various stages of decay. Buildings are old and not very well maintained. It struck me, there were no good-looking doors anywhere. Most of them were the same, as if the entire area was supplied by the same door company. There was just one door that was relatively new. And guess what ? That belonged to my apartment, because its only 4 years old ! Looking around I realized all doors in this neighbourhood are made of metal. I never noticed it or gave it much thought before today. Every door is Iron or iron and glass. This is in stark contrast from my native country – India, where most doors are made of solid wood .
I’ll stop ranting now and post the images I selected for today –
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Door.”
