Foto Friday: The Doors are Open

Hi and welcome to ‘Foto-Friday’

As the name suggests, I’m planning to share a single photo with you each Friday, but miss-spelling photo to combine the double F of the 2 words. Yes I know, not my most creative moment (it is spelt Foto in Portuguese though!)

Unlike the other articles on my site, this will be one shot and a few words. So let’s have this week’s shot:

I find Portugal inspiring to shoot – but some days the heat can be really a little bit too much for my dainty northern European system!!

I chanced upon an free entry exhibition, and went inside to escape the heat. Divided up into smaller interconnected rooms, they had all the doors open in an attempt to let some breeze through.

The Doors are Open

A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d considering making a donation?

A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d consider helping me?

One way you could help me is if you want to buy ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING from Amazon, (that’s anything; cameras, books, shoe polish, whatever) if you do so using the links below, then I will receive a small percentage of your expenditure, and you will pay NO MORE than you would have paid anyway.

Amazon USA Any Product

Amazon UK Any Product

This will also work if you USE THOSE LINKS to click through to your own country.

To do this, click a link above, scroll to the bottom of the page, then select your country from the drop down menu, as shown below

Another way you could help, especially if you don’t like Amazon, but do like me, is by making a donation

The donate button is in the top right hand corner or can be found on the link below

Thanks Very Much!

  1. Great!
    Colours, light, … just right.
    The proportions right to balance the importance of the first room, the next room and the far door.
    And the doors open at just the right angle.
    ( I see it.)
    A photo that gives me a lot of associations…
    – – –

    Allow me a curious question, did you try out different camera positions first or was it clear to you at once?


    1. Thanks very much Kristian,

      I just went back and checked, and I only took one frame of the scene, so saw it in one I guess! Although I had to straighten it slightly in post (a bugbear of mine and I’ll still not convinced it’s straight).

      I cloned something off the wall as well!

      It was originally going to be in mono, but I’m glad I chose colour (I usually do!)
