We've all heard the English proverb that the eyes are the doorway to the soul; this month, let's use our eyes and photographic talent to examine doorways, passages, and portals of all types as a transition point between two places.

Rather than focus on the architecture of a door, compose your shot to show a passageway. You have to be able to see, or at least have a hint of, what's through the doorway ... what's on the other side. If it's a gorgeous passageway, all the better!

You also can be creative about what constitutes a gateway: It can be man-made or exist in nature. No windows, unless they are part of the doorway -- which may be one way of seeing what's on the other side. Look for beauty, or intrigue, or contrast.

In this month of rainstorms and taxes, I'll give you all a break and say that your photo does NOT have to be taken this month. If you have something that fits the theme in your portfolio, feel free to submit it.

The Flickr tags are Boston.com, contest, April2010, Doorways

If you've never entered one of our contests, you must read these rules first. There's a lot of important information there.

The deadline to get your photo uploaded to Flickr is midnight April 30.

Let me know if you have any questions. And good luck!

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
