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.
