Quick Snap in North end Montreal
Thanks to a solid case of the flu that kept me in bed for five days in a row, I have not been able to get out on a doorscursion.
The good news: the worst is over and I am on the mend.
The bad news: complete lack of new material for this week’s post.
I’d had the idea of revisiting some of my previously used Italian doors; perhaps reworking them in old sepia-tones or black and white.
I may still do that at some time in the future but with my energy level where it is at the moment, that still sounds like way more work than I’m up for 😦
Instead Honey came to my rescue with a couple of shots of a very European-looking door that she found for me this week in the north end of the city.
I knew my sweetie had a good eye for doors, and I have to say that these shots are an excellent first effort at door photography. Who knows I may just send her out door hunting on her own more often 😀
Kidding aside, in North America we almost never put our handles in the middle of the door, nor this low. We usually put them completely to the left or to the right, opposite the door’s hinges, and above the height of the lock.
After all this time of photographing doors, I still have not been able to find any information on the origins or the design advantages of putting the door handle lower and in the middle of the door like this.
If anyone has any insights to contribute regarding this please do feel free to share.
As always, thanks so much for visiting 🙂
Et un gros MERCI mon amour – B-Zoo
