Unposted Doorways of 2014

As we say farewell to 2014, I wanted to do one last post on a favourite photographic subject of mine this year – Doorways.

This past year I found myself drawn to doorways.  I found myself fascinated by the design of each doorway I came across and found myself wondering what inspired the design? What made them choose this color? What does this door revel about what is inside?

I came to conclude that 2014 was a transitional year for me, one in which I found myself looking at the different doors in front of me. Wondering what was behind them and if I should go through this one? Or that one? But, mostly I was looking for the right door to walk through.

As a tribute to 2014, I wanted to share the unposted doorways of 2014.

Brunch in London

I didn’t end up having as much time to blog in London as I thought when I quickly wrote this post. 

In between getting my London walking fix doing a bit of shopping (post to come on this one!) & meeting up with London Family … I barely got time to sleep, much less blog.

But, now that I’m back in Toronto & the jet lag is slowly subsiding, I can sit down with my cup of tea & share with you a bit more about my trip.

Toronto’s Granger Park, a mix of Old & New

Like many who live in this city, there are corners of Toronto I have failed to really notice. There are countless places in this city that I have hurried past without taking in their quirks or beauty.

This lack of attention is the by product of the routine we live our life by. Our routine keeps us from really seeing our surroundings & life around us.

But, when we slow down & really look, we find beauty in unexpected places.

Kollektive Photo Series: Doorways of Toronto

Doors have always fascinated us.

The design & structural detail of a door set the stage for how we perceive a building.  Even if we never enter, the door provides a hint at what you would find inside.
