Variations on a Door – Maison Vaudry dit Beauchêne
We came across this lovely old building while visiting an outdoor Christmas market in the town of L’Assomption in the Lanaudière region just north-east of Montréal. You may recall my images from our skate on the frozen L’Assomption river in that region last winter.
Now converted into a restaurant that seems to be up for sale, in case anyone is interested in owning and running a small business in rural Québec 😉 this ancestral home was built around 1780 to serve as both a family residence and workshop for the town’s blacksmith.
The exterior walls are at least a foot thick and made entirely of large field stones held together by an oddly colored pinkish/red mortar:
I took quite a few shots around the entire building that I’ll share in future posts, but for this week I decided to do something a bit different.
Using the side door as an anchor point I tried some compositional experiments incorporating the other elements found on that big right side wall. Feel free to let me know which one you like best:
By the way door fans, if you head over to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge you’ll find that this week’s subject is Doors and Windows. You may want to check out some of the wonderful contributions to that challenge and perhaps even add your own to the list.
As always, thanks for looking 🙂
