August Photo Challenge: "Doors & Gates"

So here’s an interesting one, which came from a suggestion in our Photo Challenge Ideas thread.

It’s something that I think all of us may have used from time to time; Might even have a few in the building where we live or work. I’m assuming.

This month’s challenge, “Doors & Gates”! Photograph an interesting door or gate, or photograph a door or gate in an interesting way; It’s all up to you.

As usual, we’ll vote in an open poll on a winner when the month is done.

I will start us off this month with a photo taken on my trip to France last week:


I can participate this month! I JUST (as in last Monday) took this shot of the hangar doors that the space shuttles used to be prepped in at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I took this shot to get a sense of perspective. The doors are on the left side of the building - the flag you see on the front side of the building is over 30 stories tall, and the trees are over 20 ft tall. It was a MASSIVE structure.

Thanks @Shaun_OfTheDead ; there seems to be lots of interesting subjects like this in French towns and villages. I wish I had had more time to find others but the family only let me have an hour to myself at a location.

They look big @DaveMaxwell ; but I did not realise how big until I read your figures.

Wow! I like that you included the trees for a sense of scale. Nice!

What would really have sold it was a human somewhere in the frame.

If there would have been anyone out(it was 95+F out), I would have. I do have a picture the tour guide suggested of a set of 10ft tall doors - against the size of the building, they look like a mouse hole.

hmm, Not as many entries as I thought we would have gotten.

It is a nice door. It is the type of an old door.

Thanks, Imran. It is.
