Just imagine the history that unfolded behind these doors…

  1. Your photos are beautiful. It takes me back to Paris, France in the early 90’s when I got the chance to visit it. Keep up the beautiful work. You never know how many people you can inspire with your beautiful photographs.

  4. I love your doors and windows. Sometimes the ordinary transcends being anything but ordinary. I just opened a show of ‘Trees’, normally considered ordinary as well.
