I love doors. I don’t know why I love old, unique, and especially wooden doors so much. But I do. And I photograph them.
But man, do I need to work on this skill. So for your viewing pleasure, welcome to
Week of the
I never know which is a better door accessory, trash or car. What do you think?
Yes, a blown out, sideways, skewed door is never complete until you add what I think is a windshield wiper or anti-tank gun to the bottom. Just for conversation sake.
Well, it’s better (ish), besides the bad framing (what is going on up top there?), the skew, and being so far back. Cropping and composition are overrated.
Well, I cropped it. But just in case cutting off the side of the door isn’t enough, I also added some lovely roof gutter for you. Ooooooo…roof gutter.
Centering stuff is also way too overrated.
This almost could have been really cool, except for that stupid plant and light post photo-bombing my picture. Oh and the cutting off the bottom of the ground door, if you want to get picky.
So these are some awesome door photos from my first trip to The Balkans. If anyone has any tricks to getting great door photos (especially on narrow streets) let me know, because I still love taking door photos but I still have trouble with them. Especially with the skewing of perspective.
Stay tuned for next week when we review LANDSCAPES. Oh the joy!
Want to see how much my photos have improved in the last 8 years?

About Dani Blanchette
I am a freelance travel and music photographer and creator of GoingNomadic.com.
I love music, food, and exploring cities without guidebooks. I’ve flown a helicopter, hitchhiked down the east coast USA, and once snuck into the back of a zoo (in Serbia) and pet a lion.
I am always up for an adventure, and sometimes I videotape them.
