Great, really good monochrome subject.
Fabulous design, just fascinating to see the horsehoes flipping.. Wink
I suppose the big door is for those Giant French Saints. Nah!

Thank you, Jim and Lee !

Jim, even Saints need to play once in a while. Ergo, giant horseshoes... Smile!
Lee, third door, twilight zone, fourth dimension, 5D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And me, still with my 20D, no wonder I can't see it... Smile!

Good point. That's undoubtly the door that saw the heaviest use. I don't know what/ whom the portal was opened for (kings ?)
Thank you, Lantz, for the comment and the feedback.

Thank you, Fernando. Wood and metal can make such a fine association. Composition merely follows.

What a delightful image. The thumbnail reminds of of a patterened curtain. Open the image and see the door.....look a little longer and the other door come forth. Great work.!
