the door beside Mother Birch

Yesterday I went on a Big Tree Tour.
In the dooryard of this house stood a massive paper birch.
This house, I think, is older than the birch.
And yet it's hard to imagine one without the other.

This is a nice one, Kitty. I love the three strong colors at work in this image.

I really like your vivid colors around this strange dark door.

forbidding door, I think it is the color more than anything. do you have a shot of the birch?

JM said...

Thanks, all.
MCCasey, yes, I do have a shot of the birch. Shall I post it tomorrow?

Beautiful composition: the colors, the shapes, the balance. Great finds on your walks!

Wonderful doorway - like the colors and feel of the birch and house harmony!

Hello sweet friend!
This doorway is so beautiful and classic!
In fact, I did not understand the meaning of "birch", I guess it's about the tree.
Perfect shot!
Have a nice week, here Marina and I will have a break from our classes, they call this holiday week of "Vacances Toussaint"- I think it's Vacancy of all saints.
Au revoir!

Nicely balanced image, BC, both with individual elements and in the use of colours.

Sweeping leaves is a soul-destroying past-time: the previous lot are not disposed off before more carpet the ground.

There has been much creativity over the years with the wiring around this doorway.

Lovely post. I look forward to seeing more of the birch tomorrow.

That's classic, I would guess...Interesting for sure and yet somewhat forboding (does that make sense?)...

An excellent composition, Brattcat.

I'm assuming this is a private home (the house, not the birch)...

Heh, heh.

I like how you combined the doorway and a few sprigs of birch. What a good example of a Greek Revival style doorway. Might we see the rest of the house or building on Thursday?

Inspiring. You take great pictures.

Jilly said...

This is so beautifully composed - colours, textures, such a beautiful doorway and those beautiful fallen leaves and pumpkin.

Paula said...

You did the perfect theme day post as well. The nicest doorway post of them all.

Ooh, the irresistible temptation of a closed door. What mystery might lie beyond it?
